Program Notes

Monday September 18, 2017
7:00 PM
 
Sweaty Eyeballs Animation is excited to bring in guest curator Corrie Francis Parks to present a collection of international short films from contemporary animators working with wet paint, sand, clay, and charcoal, this program introduces a new generation of visual innovators. Their films dazzle the eye with light, color, and texture, connecting physical materials and the hand of the artist to the narrative context. These artists revel in the process of animation as much as the end goal of the audience’s journey, leaving a memorable impact on not only our perception, but our deeper sensibilities. The program will be introduced by Corrie Francis Parks, professor of animation at University of Maryland, Baltimore County, director of A Tangled Tale and Coyote, and author of the book Fluid Frames: Experimental Animation with Sand, Clay, Paint, and Pixels. www.fluidframes.net
