Something strange is going on in Brooklyn. A giant bread creature is poised to attack the city, aliens are living next door, a bear turns up missing, felt critters are walking & talking, and old people start hooking up on the internets. Maybe there's something funny in the water.

The Pratt Institute's Media Arts Department proudly presents the Traditional Animation thesis films of the graduating class of 2007, as well as selected shorts. Students will be in attendance for a Q&A to talk about their stop motion, 2-D computer animation, and hand-drawn films.

Free and open to the public, May 4th & 5th, 7pm at the Two Boots Pioneer Theater


We are a group of animators that attend Pratt Institute, located in Brooklyn, New York. Here is our archives of sketches, photos, and animations.

This is Emmett Goodman.

And I am seeking help in working with a Bolex film camera, or any other film camera that the equiptment office holds. I am intending to shoot my final stop-motion assignment (for Bob Lyons' class) on actual film instead of digitally. Call it a personal artistic need. I figure the blog would be the quickest way to do this. I know that this is not what we usually use it for.
Bob has offered to show me how to work with these cameras, but I need to buy the actual film, and I have absolutely no idea what I am doing. Because this a big first for me, I will definitely need to shoot my first celluoid with someone guiding me through it. I need to start this the week we return from Spring Break.
So if anybody reading this can help me, or knows someone who might be able to help, please respond. I will be very grateful for any help I can get.

I hope everyone is enjoying their spring break. I look forward to seeing everyone when we get back.

Well, if you want to learn the Bolex, I'd wait until the summer. If you try to shoot on film, you're going to be learning 16mm stuff instead of stop-motion stuff, not to mention dealing with labs and cost. If I were you, I'd take the stop motion class, learn about that stuff, and then try to do a longer project over the summer with a Bolex. Film is nice, but it's very time consuming and expensive and problematic. I sold my Bolex a long time ago.
