Rough Cuts #2

September 21 - November 12, 2016

Venue
Creativity Explored 2

Location
San Francisco, CA

Trevor Cartmill-Endow's cast of humorous characters.

New films and related artwork from the animation program.

Rough Cuts is an annual showcase of new films and related artwork from the Creativity Explored animation program. Each of the participating artists takes a unique approach to the medium, using props, sets, characters and sound elements to create animated worlds that are deeply personal.

This year’s event includes a new collection of hand drawn cels by Kevin Chu reminiscent of early silly symphony films. Allura Fong’s video “Hearts and Flowers” will give viewers a peek into a virtual garden of love populated with the artist’s paintings and sculptures. Ann Yamasaki will show “The Penguins Take A Vacation”, a paper animation using finely textured cut-outs to depict a dinner party. And Trevor Cartmill-Endow will introduce a new humorous cast of characters that includes a cheeseburger, ice cream and onion ring in his latest 3D stop-motion animation.

For the closing event, Creativity Explored 2 will be open to the public for an afternoon screening of completed and in-progress films. You can meet the animators who make these unique works and view all the art up close and personal.
