Salise Hughes, a local experimental filmmaker has put together a fabulous program called ‘Animated Art’, screening work from 18 talented animators/filmmakers. I’m proud to be in such company, as my last film, ‘A Moment’s Reverie’ will be playing alongside their films. Seriously, check out the description:
“Rethinking the boundaries of animation, visual art and experimental filmmaking, this program of films by mostly local talent brings together artists working in different disciplines that are rarely shown together.
Includes works by; Jon Behrens, Cathy McClure, Martha Colburn, Matthew Cox, Webster Crowell, Stefan Gruber, Salise Hughes, Britta Johnson, Sarah Jane Lapp, Davis Limbach, Tess Martin, Jeffry Mitchell, Amanda Moore, Clyde Peterson, Friese Undine, Drew Christie. Tommy Thompson and Brent Watanabe.”
As a viewer, rarely do I see programming that is as insteresting as this – even if my film wasn’t a part of this show, I would be dying to attend. Look at these artists! Sarah Jane Lapp! Stefan Gruber! Brent Watanabe! All make original, interesting, work that is not your CG-short-with-a-funny-punchline-type of animation that you normally see at an animation program.
It’s Thursday, January 7th, 7PM, at the Northwest Film Forum in Seattle, WA (1515 12th Ave, on Capitol Hill).
Bring your friends. Get blown away.
