Bill Plympton’s “Your Face” Global Jam – Animation Scoop

Bill Plympton’s “Your Face” Global Jam

In 1987, Bill Plympton burst onto the animation scene with the debut of his short Your Face at the Annecy Festival. After winning numerous awards and garnering a nomination for an Oscar, Plympton has gone on a 30-year career as “The King of Indie Animation”. To commemorate three decades, producer Ken Mora commissioned a special tribute for 2017, gathering independent animators from around the world to create a Your Face ‘Jam’ – both as homage to Bill and to the film itself – and to celebrate his world-wide influence. Ken Mora has just released the film on You Tube – and its almost as much fun as Plympton’s original. Kudos to everyone who contributed:
