Stop-Mo Expo!

Our friends at ASIFA-Hollywood are putting on a cool and unusual event tomorrow at Woodbury University in Burbank -- a one-day expo devoted to stop motion animation . . .

Here's a blurb from the ASIFA site:

The expo will be comprised of two distinct events: beginning at 9 a.m. panel discussions and seminars with animation professionals and at 6 p.m. a film festival that will showcase classic and current stop-motion animated films, including rare 16 mm stop-motion films from the collection of animation director Mark Kausler. Running concurrently with these two events will be a stop-motion animation jam, a unique feature where professionals, students and members of Movies By Kids will combine their talents to create a stop-motion film.

My sense is that there's a lot of interest in stop-mo animation these days. Given that Los Angeles isn't exactly a stop-motion center, and the quality of the panelists and guests, I'll bet this is a big hit.

Why no option to post comments on "A "Kiddie Medium"?"

You got something to hide?

"Comments" was inadvertently turned off my yours truly while posting. (It's on again now.)

Kevin had nothing to do with it.
