Rebel Alliance are doing some pretty cool things in Joburg. The latest event saw the debut screening of experimental artist collaborations in animation, illustration and photography at The Bioscope.
Above is the first Rebel Alliance Animation Jam, a pro-active collaborative project between 18 animators. Participants were asked to submit clips 2-20 seconds long, working in any animated medium they chose. The only rule was that every clip had to begin and end with the same master shot.
The artists are:

Vampire9000 – Jazzspazz (Sassquatch vs Jaysynth remix)
Rogue Squadron brought together 6 South African photographers – Musa Nxumalo, Patrick Dinneen, Alex van Rensburg, Hanro Havenga, Olivia Mortimer and Bernard Brand. Each was asked to supply a numbered sequence of 30 images, handed the soundtrack of Vampire9000’s Colours (as remixed by Lightweights) and were asked to choose their photos and consider their sequence by placing emphasis on the juxtaposition or continuity that would be created by cutting between them.
Here it is:
For the first Rebel Alliance Illustration Jam participating members were sent templates with 4 shapes to draw clouds, landscapes, characters and objects in. These elements were then combined in a virtual 3D world.
