Sick and Twisted festival returns after hiatus
on Thursday,December 09,2010 20:12
Artists from across the country have looked forward to attending Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation in San Diego since 1977, but that ended when one of its creators passed away.
Mike Gribble had helped Craig "Spike" Decker hold the festival every year at the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego until his death in 1994, according to the North County Times. The project went on hiatus shortly after Decker lost Gribble, but it will return in 2010 after three years with an extensive list of participants.
A number of animators from around the world will showcase their short films at the 2010 Sick and Twisted Festival. Many of these pieces, which are suited for mature audiences, contain large amounts of gore and sex. Twenty-two films have been submitted for the festival, which will take place at the La Paloma Theatre in Encinitas, California.
Among the notable animators who have previously participated at Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation include Tim Burton, Mike Judge, Pete Docter and John Lasseter. This year's films will feature stop-motion animation, traditional cell styles and computer-generated images. The festival may inspire viewers to enter the industry themselves.
Employment in animation is predicted to increase by 14 percent over the next eight years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
