* Wednesday, October 25, 2000. Glendale, California, U.S.A.
Glendale Community College is presenting an evening with Frank Gladstone, who has worked as a professional animator, producer, director, writer and teacher for more than 25 years. Currently, he is head of artistic development at DreamWorks, SKG Animation. Gladstone will go through a step by step critique of the Charlie Chaplin film CITY LIGHTS to determine "what makes a great film great." He will look into the effects of lighting, intensity, background interest, etc., along with a good story. This screening will be the first in a series of classic films that will become part of the "Animation Lecture Series," as good animated films have all the same qualities as a live-action film. The event will have a US$5 admission price and will take place from 7 9:30 pm. For more information contact Jonnie Weaver, Animation Coordinator of GCC, at: Tel.: (818) 240-1000, ext. 5608.
