I’m still recovering from Annecy but the Platform Festival is coming up in Portland in a few days and it promises to be another intense animation-heavy week. Jerry has already offered his appearance schedule for Platform so I thought I’d offer a list of programs I’m involved with up there. For those of you who prefer Jerry- and Amid-free animation events, you’ll be pleased to know there’s plenty of those as well, including promising presentations by Smith & Foulkes, James Jarvis, Scott McCloud, Henry Selick, and Aardman founders David Sproxton and Peter Lord. Here’s what I’ll be doing:
Tuesday, June 26, 4 pm Ã¢â‚¬“ 5:30 pm
Northwest Film Center: Whitsell Auditorium / Portland Art Museum
Design Daze: Mid-Century Modern Design: A screening of rare Fifties animated shorts including the superb John Hubley/Bill Hurtz industrial More Than Meets the Eye, a 35mm print of Ward Kimball’s Melody and the Ronald Searle-designed Energetically Yours.
