MARCH 17th: 2018 Annual Meeting / Picasso Screening

Picasso

Animation Resources is holding its Annual Meeting, screening and party on Saturday March 17th and you’re invited!

Every year, Animation Resources holds a meeting where we recap our accomplishments during the previous year and announce our goals for the upcoming one. It’s a great time to find out more about our organization and meet the people who make it all happen. But that’s not all… we screen a rare film from our collection on the big screen, we network and we party as well!

Our screening for this event is very special. We have just received a newly restored high resolution copy of “The Mystery of Picasso” (1956). Directed by Henri-Georges Cluzot (Wages of Fear, Les Diaboliques) this film delves deep inside the creative process of the most influential artist of the 20th century. Photographed almost wordlessly, Cluzot’s camera becomes Picasso’s canvas. Using a combination of stop motion and time-lapse photography, Picasso paints on glass, and the images appear and spring to life as if by magic. Even if you know very little about Picasso’s life and work, this film will inspire and amaze you. Once you see this film, you’ll never forget it.

Screening TONIGHT: Action Analysis- Acting for Animation FREE

Acting For Animation

In the ten short years between “Steamboat Willie” and “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” the Disney Studios advanced the art and technique of animation at a rapid rate of speed. This progress has been widely credited to the work of Don Graham. He instituted a series of action analysis meetings where live action films were broken down and studied, and animated films would be critiqued to determine what worked well and what could be improved upon. On November 6th at the Art Center College of Design, Animation Producer Stephen Worth will be channelling the spirit of Don Graham to present an action analysis class on “Acting for Animation”.

This event is absolutely FREE and open to the public.

Presented as a part of Michael Dooley’s “Design History of Comics & Animation” class

March 11th: Animation Resources Annual Meeting and Screening Party!

Baron Munchausen

Animation Resources is holding its Annual Meeting, screening and party on Saturday March 11th and you’re invited!

Every year, Animation Resources holds a meeting where we recap our accomplishments during the previous year and announce our goals for the upcoming one. It’s a great time to find out more about our organization and meet the people who make it all happen. But that’s not all… we screen a rare film from our collection on the big screen, we network and we party as well!

Baron Munchausen

This year, we will be screening a brand new high definition restoration of Karel Zeman’s revolutionary film, Baron Prášil (The Fabulous Baron Munchausen). You probably have never heard of this film, but after you see it, you’ll never forget it.

Terry Gilliam is quoted as saying, “I remember when I was doing Baron Munchausen seeing a picture in a [British Film Institute] catalogue from Karel Zeman’s Baron Munchausen and saying, “Wow, what is this?” and eventually seeing the film, and saying, “Wow, that’s great,” because he did what I’m still trying to do, which is to try and combine live action with animation. His Doré-esque backgrounds were wonderful. The film captured the real spirit of the character.”

Baron Munchausen

Our digital transfer of the film comes all the way from the Karel Zeman Museum in Czechoslovakia. You won’t see this one on Netflix! So don’t miss it.

If you would like to attend the party, please RSVP by sending an email to Taber Dunipace at… tdunipace@animationresources.org. Our seating for the screening is limited, so please RSVP early and if it turns out later that you can’t make it, let us know so we can offer your seat to someone else on the waiting list. If you can, please bring snacks and drinks for the refreshments table.
