Beakus gets NewD



We're thrilled to announce the launch of NewD 2015, a competition to find the hottest new talent out there. Having worked with some amazing graduating animators and directors over the years, we thought we'd put something back and offer a paid internship to the winner of the competition. All you've got to do is register using this form by 1st June [UPDATE! New extended registration deadline 15th June!] then animate a 10-second clip on the theme Being Bold, with our palette by 1st July. Easy peasy! We've even got some sound-beds created by Marian Mentrup to inspire you, and a stellar judging line-up that includes Time Out's film editor Dave Calhoun, M&C Saatchi head of film Bruce McKelvie, and Televisual's deputy editor Jon Creamer. On top of the promise of a paid internship, we hope to be able to offer commercial representation to the animation director, if everything goes according to plan. But first, let's see some animation!

Go to *newd* for all the details... And let's all get NewD*!

* in case you were wondering, it's short for New Director..
