animate! questions received notions of animation practice. We believe that animation is not, and indeed never has been, exclusively driven by frame-by-frame process but by wider notions of synthesis. We support innovative content and 'agenda' as well as new forms, processes & techniques.

animate! is 'technology-independent'. We give equal commissioning consideration to celluloid, tape and digitally-based proposals, in pure or hybrid form.

6 new commissions

These six UK-based projects are animate! tv's slate for 2006. They are funded by Arts Council England and Channel 4 for completion in summer 2007 and broadcast by Channel 4 in the autumn.
