x-giranimation – Animation Game in the Urban Jungle

X-Giranimation, Mela Kocher, Markus Rossé, CH 2015

X-giranimation, a technique developed in 1995 to extract giraffes from animated films, has been revived exactly 20 years later. Armed with smartphones and tablets, Fantoche festivalgoers help lead the animals back to their digital homes in this alternate- reality game that takes place in the streets of Baden.

Download the App „Fantoche X-Giranimation“ for iOS or Android (70MB, Smartphone or Tablet) and follow the instruction. Find the animation sequences of 16 animators and receive background information. Free WLAN is available at the train station in Baden.

Follow the event on Twitter at #xgiranimation. Further information on Twitter and from 1 to 6 September at the info desk of Fantoche.
