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.

A bunch of us are animating in G-50 today at 8:00PM. All are welcome to join us, yo.

Bring food, something to drink, and like....stuff to watch. Bring your homework too.

But most importantly, food. Because I'm hungry.

Animation for big kids at Film Forum

I just got this email from Lisa Crafts:

Dear Friends,

I wanted to let you know about an unusual and fascinating program of animation that will screen

"Cartoons: No Laughing Matter?" is a collection of 8 graphically diverse and emotionally charged films
that will include my film, THE FLOODED PLAYGROUND.

This program is NOT for children.

Get tickets online at: www.filmforum.org.

Animators Suzan Pitt, Lisa Crafts, George Griffin, Andy & Carolyn London, and Debra Solomon

Pam's Senior Thesis

Hey everybody. I figured I'd post my senior thesis here for everyone to look at....unfortunately it didn't make it into the 7:30 show. I'm in the 5:00 show, for some reason.

The quality here isn't that great but it was the easiest to upload and show. The actual film quality is a lot better.

(Sorry guys - On hold until I can make a smaller file) x_x

if you want your money back...

Good Morning Jess,

I still have a stack of receipts from members of the animation club that need to be reimbursed. I need the student ID numbers, mailing addresses, and copies of credit card statements showing the purchases for these individuals. For some of your members I have some of the information but not all. With only two weeks of school left your members are running out of time if they would like to be reimbursed for their expenses. This is in regard to greyhound tickets from earlier this year.

These are the members in which I need information. Please have them come in to see me as soon as possible.

Hi everybody, this is not animation news.

Hi everybody, this is not animation news, but news related to a Key-Frame member. Emmett is currently in the hospital recovering from appendicitis surgery, and he has requested that anybody who has a class with him if they could please pass along any assignment information. He hopes to be back at school on Monday. Thanks from Emmett’s family.

So...comment with your FAVORITE-ISTISTISTIST link(s)/website(s) (animation related, durr). So I can stare at it...and then put it on the side of the blog.

Watch this before it's locked in the Disney Vault forever

This was on TV Funhouse last night and I saw it on cartoon brew. It's a laugh riot. Watch it before Disney sues NBC and it's pulled from YouTube.
