Like experimental animation? You know about one Capitol Hill project going on right in front of us for the next four years, no?
911 Media’s newest venture, Move It!, is a monthly screening of experimental animation. The first screening will take place at Ghost Gallery (on E Denny Way and Summit Ave E, in Capitol Hill), February 5 at 7pm, and will feature the work of Brian Markle (animator) and Jeff Aaron Bryant (musician).
Appropriating the documentary The World of R. Buckminster Fuller, Brian and Jeff have collaborated to bring together over 165,000 frames of digitally-drawn animation with an original musical score, emphasizing the aesthetic feel of the documentary and the geometric shapes that fascinated Buckminster Fuller. The screening is free and open to the public.
