Moving Pictures: A Night of Experimental Animation

Curated by Lillian Currens

Doors at 7:00 PM, Screening at 7:30 PM

@ The Mini Microcinema - 1329 Main St.

The rough definition of animation is a series of stills shown in rapid succession to create the illusion of movement. When we think 'animation' the first thing that comes to mind is typically Mickey Mouse or Saturday morning cartoons. However, since it's advent, film makers have been utilizing the art form to experiment, push boundaries and create entirely new genres and techniques. Join us for a series of short experimental films that break convention and turn the banal "cartoon" into an elevated art form. The collection make use of traditional cel animation as well as CGI, collage, stop motion and more to create some of the most creative and mind bending cinematic works.
