Last night we trekked over to the Red Vic on Haight street to see the films of Al Jarnow, the amazing experimental animator who is best known for the work he did in the 1970s and 1980s for Sesame Street and 3-2-1 Contact. His own stop motion work incorporates found objects including: seashells, stones and blocks– even his baby son! His studies of the passage of time and light and objects moving through space are incredibly inspiring.
What objects in my own day-to-day life can I animate? Popcorn? our Guinea Pigs? Our children? Art supplies? food? The possibilities are limitless..
