GLAS Animation is presenting “An Evening with Henry Selick” at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 1 at The Downtown Independent in Los Angeles.
As director of the films Coraline and The Nightmare Before Christmas, Selick has made some of the most internationally recognized animated films of all time. They were not only pivotal for the current resurgence of stop-motion, but helped transform the perception of what animation could be and what it could accomplish. His work showed general audiences that animation was not a form to be confined, but rather continuously explored in both its narrative and physical forms.
Selick will screen a selection of his personal shorts, including Slow Bob in the Lower Dimensions, Seepage, Phases, and some surprises. There will also be a Q&A with Selick led by GLAS co-founder Einar Baldvin.
Tickets are $25 and are available here. ASIFA members get 15% off using the code ASIFA2016; CalArts students and alumni receive 20% off using the code STUDENT3000. (Please have student ID or ASIFA Membership card available upon entry.)
