What happens if you fall off a high cliff? Can an umbrella protect you from a rock falling on your head? Can you punch someone straight through the face or drive a car into the water without sinking? According to the laws of physics, you would be in real trouble. But animators can create their own rules of nature.
In this lecture Maarten van Gageldonk, program director of the Kaboom Animation Festival, will take you on a journey through some law-defying animations and give you an inside look on what can happen in places where the rules of physics do not apply. Making up your own rules of physics may sound easy, but it takes consistency. This lecture will show how that works.
If you need an exercise in thinking outside the box or an escape from all answers that resolve to either 1 or 0 (or 42), this lecture is for you!
