CREATIVE GENIUS: An Animated Moving Tribute to Vicitms of 9|11
Animation artists from around the world were invited to take part in a special project commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
The project was created by Aniboom Virtual Studio, who partnered with award winning communication artist Gideon Amichay Chief Creative Officer at and partner at Shalmor Avnon Amichay/Y&R Interactive Tel Aviv to honor the vicitms of 9/11 on the 10th anniversary. They brought together animators from all over the world. This is a personal project for Amichay, and any proceeds generated will be donated to the Twin Towers Orphan Fund and the Tuesday's Children Organization
Amichay noted, "the vision, mood, and message of every ten-second animation vary greatly among the individual artists. This collection of 9/11 animation shorts is currently being screened in its entirety on the Web on Aniboom’s 9/11 YouTube channel with future plans to debut in different forms on television and in real-world venues. All animation clips are signed with the artist’s name followed by the flag of his/her home country".
Amichay developed the idea of bringing together animators from all over the world to honor the upcoming 10th anniversary. Gideon’s idea was simple yet complex at the same time: "Bring together the worlds top animators who would create a ten-second animation inspired by the title: "9/11. It’s been ten years."
Each of the ten-second animations is completely personal to each individual artist, which I found emotional, inspiring and extremely refreshing with the sad memories I have personally of that day.
The first two animations had me hitting pause inorder to wipe away the tears.
The complete project can also be viewed below and the Aniboom Virtual Studio website.
