A Voyage Through Animation

An Eyeful of Sound will be screening as part of the Whirlygig Cinema event, A Voyage Through Animation, on Sunday 16th September, 7.30pm. It sounds like a beautiful and interesting event, I love hearing live scores to old films (although Eyeful will have it's original score thanks very much!). Our film will screen as part of the animated shorts programmed alongside the classic stuff, I feel very honoured to be programmed alongside Lotte Reiniger (go Barnet animators!) and Jan Svankmejer.

"A Voyage Through Animation celebrates historical and contemporary innovation in animation, matching films by recent artists with seminal work from the last 90 years including Man Ray’s Dadaist experiments, Lotte Reiniger’s silhouette animation, Russian collage by Ivan Ivanov and master of stop-frame Jan Svankmajer. All films receive a live score by live cinema pioneers The Cabinet of Living Cinema, who will outline the innovations in animation that have shaped the artform.

The evening will also incorporate live animation by audiovisual artist Noriko Okaku and a selection of animated short films programmed by Whirlygig Cinema to showcase emerging talent in the genre.
This event is part of the Scala Beyond season."

It will be at the Yard Theatre, Queen’s Yard, Hackney Wick, London, E9 5EN
Tickets £9 or £7 for Whirlygig Cinema badge-holders
