Since 2007, Babiloff & Videoformes organize an Exquisite Corpse project. The concept is simple : an adaptation of the 'Surrealists group' process to video
For the 2010/2011 session Vidéoformes launches a new call for participation around two branches initiated by two video artists singled out during the 2010 festival :
> A project in standard definition (DV-SD) initiated by Patrick Bergeron :
Video artist and researcher who modifies and manipulates the image and its details. Exploring the concepts of speed and memories, his work is a mix of animation, experimental film and documentary.
> A project in High definition (DV-HD) initiated by Max Hattler :
Animation filmmaker and media artist interested in the space between abstraction and figuration in the moving image. He works across the fields of short film, music video, installation and audio-visual live performance, and has collaborated with bands including Basement Jaxx, Jemapur, The Egg, Ladyscraper. Max has shown his award-winning experimental films at hundreds of festivals worldwide (EMAF, Onedotzero, Annecy Animation Festival...)
Already 71 registrations & 18 countries represented : Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Lebanon, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, UK, USA, Sweden, Iran Australia & Spain...
