STARING EYES #3: Yule Logs and Certain Types of Nog

Saturday, December 15th
8 PM

In a nod to Charlie Brown Christmases of yesterday, lumpy clay abominable snowmen, unnamed islands of misfit toys, charred yule logs and deliriously spiked eggnogs, STARING EYES December program presents a festive seasonal lineup of experimental, acerbic animated films you most certainly can't Tivo. 

The program features shorts by fifteen claymation artists, cartoonists, former Sesame Street animators, up-and-comers and underground old-schoolers from Japan, Canada, the UK and all across the US of A. Also, for an extra dose of nostalgic, holiday flavor, we will have a few of our favorite golden oldies and holiday oddities thrown into the mix.

Eggnog, popcorn and hot chocolate will be provided, but bring your own blankets and beer.  It's December at an alternative art space, meaning it'll be a little chilly, so please dress comfortably.

Left Nude

Left Nude was a 'film' i made in my spare time, mostly evenings whilst I made my graduation film Boogodobiegodongo.   I used my left hand so my right wouldn't get too tired and is influenced by the drawings i made when attending the life drawing classes at the RCA.   The sound is a mixture of me making arrrrrrrh noises, playing the trombone and a orchestra tuning up.  It was all drawn on A3 paper with 8B pencil and consisted of roughly 800 drawings.
