Continuing the tradition of Experimental Mixed Media Animator John Gati, ASIFA-East once again is putting on a screening devoted to the art of stop-motion animation. However, this year we are adding a feminine touch. All of our panel members will be women, so that perhaps we can learn a little bit more about what it’s like to work in an industry that started off as ‘male-dominated’ (nine old men anyone?).
Our guests include Lisa Barnstone (“Celebrity Deathmath”), Noella Borie (“The Face Shop”), Alba E Garcia-Rivas (“Time/Space Reflections”), Samantha Gurry (independent), Liesje Kraai (“They Might Be Giants”), and Alisa Stern (“Dr. Puppet”). The panel will be moderated by Caresse Singh (CBS College Sports Network) and has been organized by Robert Lyons (Media Arts Prof. at Univ. of Arts, PA).

Each artist will give a little presentation on their work, and there will be plenty of time for questions. Join us for an unique opportunity to learn more about the challenges women might face in the workplace, and to learn about the secret magic of stop-motion. See you soon!
