LAST MINUTE CANCELLATION
Cyriak (Cyriak Harris)
Cyriak is from 100 years into the future, where he has been exhumed and sent backwards in time via cyberspace in order to welcome you to the unabridged contents of his brain-damaged imagination. He works in after effects for most of his animations, and has worked on a wide variety of commercial projects, from TV advertising to channel idents to music videos.
Poster Roast exhibition
A family of like minded reprobates who put on exhibitions up and down the country, showcasing the finest screen-printed gig posters and promoting some of the most interesting graphic artists in the country. Bring some pennies because they will be selling limited edition prints.
The world's first robotic photo booth.
Photographer Alex Thirlwell has teamed up with set builder Matt Ring to devise a unique installation. Collecting a series of portraits using a one-way mirror - present yourself how you wish to be seen... You won’t be sure what your image will look like until you are projected for all to see, so remember to show your best side! All will make sense on the night, honest.
The premier graphic novel store will be setting up a pop up shop with plenty of treats tempting you to spend some hard earned cash.
The creative types over at Artillery will be making a special showreel highlighting their favourite selections of moving image work.
And Cyriak will be playing his reel of unique video work.
Brighton Illustrators Group will be exhibiting some of their members fine work and will be on hand to talk about how to get involved in the group
This time we are painting directly on the walls with Alice Stevenson and working as a team will be Eoin Ryan & Andrew Clarke
Make sure you smile when you see Jean-Luc Brouard http://www.jeanlucbrouard.com/
