Stop & Go: Stop-Animation Film Showcase

Saturday, November 8 at The Flicks

by

Many of us were introduced to stop-motion animation by Rankin/Bass TV specials like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964) and The Year Without a Santa Claus (1974). See how stop-motion has changed and how powerful it can be in the hands of artists in two films comprised of experimental stop-motion animation by a variety of artists. Stop & Go 3-D features optical and 3-D animations, and Stop & Go: Made From Scratch features animations on craft, food and horticulture. The films, curated by Surel's Place artists-in-residence Sarah Klein, a stop-motion animator, and David Kwan, a sound artist, will be screened on Saturday, Nov. 8, with a Q&A afterward. The screening is supported by Surel's Place and a grant from the Idaho Commission on the Arts.
