[Pictoplasma] Becky & Joe
Animation super-duo Becky & Joe, are directors on a mission to make the world more fun, armed with an adventurous hand-made approach to animation and an absurdist sense of dark humour.
Becky & Joe have lent their talents to a diverse list of clients including Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Channel 4, BBC and Selfridges, as well as directing sequences in the new feature-length Graham Chapman biopic ‘A Liar’s Autobiography’.
Together, they aim to create work with an original new voice, bringing their colourful imaginations to life through experimental craft-focused techniques and tactile materials such as plasticine and felt.
Becky & Joe’s fresh and playful style enjoys a cult following worldwide. Their immensely popular short film series ‘Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared’, offers a humorous and frankly disturbing view on the elusive secret of creativity, taking the conventions of children’s television into new and nightmarish territory – with views on YouTube surpassing 73 million.
Becky & Joe join the line-up for the 12th Pictoplasma Conference and Festival, opening in Berlin next week. The creative duo will be taking the stage alongside an inpressive line-up of international speakers, including Julian Glander, Merijn Hos, Agostino Iacurci and Wilfred Wood.
