Everybody knows that 2nd hand shorts always feel better the 2nd time around.
But, what everyone might not know is the history of early animation.
Where is the link, you ask?…
Well, Stacked Bookshop (located inside the Fine Art of Design) is hosting an event titled, Second Hand Shorts, which is an early animation exploration via short films for free this Saturday inside their shop.
We, over here at The Coachella Valley Art Scene, are major fans and big supporters of both the Fine Art of Design and Stacked Book Shop and can guarantee that this is a Saturday afternoon rendezvous that you won’t want to miss.
Make sure to read the information below, provided by the lovely and talented, Katherine Martinez of Stacked Books.
*make sure to check out their extra special stop-animation commercial they made for the special screening this Saturday!
SECOND HAND SHORTS: A DAY OF EARLY ANIMATION FILM EXPLORATION!
Due to requests, we have been forced to sit down and watch hours of claymation, stop motion and early forms of animation in order to bring you an entire day of short films. Visit anytime after 3pm and check out what is playing inside Stack Books (which will be turned into a mini viewing room for the afternoon).
FEATURE SCREENING 8PM
At 8o’clock we will celebrate with an exciting line up of 5 very short, very spectacular animated movies projected for your viewing pleasure on the main floor of The Fine Art of Design. Refreshments and limited edition prints will be available by co-conspirator and sponsor Mothers Milk Prints.
