Animated!

October 28, 2010

Yesterday, thanks to twitter and courtesy of the Louisiana Arts & Science Museum, I won 2 Gold Passes to attend the Red Stick International Animation Festival. I’ve had an interest in attending since the festival began in 2005 and this year I’ll finally be in attendance.

The festival, which is the largest animation festival in the US, brings together animation enthusiasts and focuses on the connection between art, technology, experimentation and entertainment.  Pretty cool for Baton Rouge!

Glancing through the itinerary I’m already planning to attend various events including Cartoon-A-Palooza ( ! ) and  a lecture on the topic of mummies which, for some reason, particularly intrigues me.  Not to mention  the special screening of  “Howl,” – a film exploring the Alan Ginsberg Obscenity trial in 1957, covering the public controversy that brought the beat generation to nation-wide attention and directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Freidman.

So thanks to twitter (which was the venue for the contest) and thanks to LASM!
