TO ATTEND, YOU MUST RSVP BY EMAIL TO TABER DUNIPACE AT tdunipace@animationresources.org

NETWORK

Come meet the people behind Animation Resources on Saturday. February 27th at 7pm. We are hosting a special surprise screening and an evening of networking with creative people in animation, cartooning and illustration.

SCREENING

In 1958, Czech puppet animator Karel Zeman produced a mind blowing adaptation of Jules Verne’s stories called “Invention For Destruction”. Combining a dazzling array of techniques, the film seamlessly blends stop motion animation, forced perspective sets and live action into an eye popping simulation of steel engravings come to life. The only thing in cinema even remotely similar are the films of George Melies. The film was released in America as “The Fantasy Film World of Jules Verne” to great critical acclaim.

The Karel Zeman Museum in Czechoslovakia recently produced a meticulously restored high definition transfer of the film from the original camera negative. We will be screening that restoration on the big screen at our annual meeting. But seating is limited, so RSVP soon.

PARTY

The Board of Directors of Animation Resources will be on hand to outline our accomplishments over our first year in operation, and to answer questions about our exciting plans for the upcoming year. The dedicated volunteers who catalog the hundreds of thousands of images and animated films in our digital archive will be demonstrating our database and showing how they digitize the treasures it contains.

The meeting is open to anyone interested in our organization. RSVP is required. Contact Taber Dunipace at…

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The histories of Animation and Jazz have been intertwined since the early days. Cab Calloway and Louis Armstrong made appearances in Betty Boop cartoons, Benny Goodman provided the soundtrack for Disney’s “Make Mine Music”, and Jack Teagarden was the “Slip Horn King of Polaroo” at Lantz. Many animators were Jazz fans too. Ward Kimball organized a Dixieland Jazz band named “The Firehouse Five”, Clampett was a regular customer at the Central Avenue Jazz clubs in Los Angeles, and Grim Natwick was friends with W.C. Handy and provided the cover illustration for the sheet music for the immortal Jazz standard “St. Louis Blues”. The rhythm and syncopation of Jazz flowed like life’s blood through the cartoons of the golden age of animation.

On Saturday March 21st, Animation Resources’ Creative League will host a very important screening of Jazz films, all in brand new high definition restorations off the original film elements. Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, Gene Krupa, Fats Waller… the program will be a “Who’s Who” of the giants of Jazz. In addition to screening a pristine print of the landmark musical “Stormy Weather” starring Lena Horne, Bill “Bojangles” Robinson and the Nicholas Brothers, we will be treated to several rare musical short subjects from the 1930s, newly restored by The Library of Congress.

Seating is limited, so reserve your seats early because this screening is sure to sell out.
