Animation Short Film Program
Thurs Sept 26: 6:30pm

Festival - Local Sightings Film Festival 2019: Short Films

Feel every emotion under the sun with Local Sightings carefully-curated block of animated works in varying styles and mediums.

Maniac Landscapes
(Matthew Wade, Boise, ID, 7 min)

Flowers come alive in a house of death.

(Luca Dipierro, Portland, OR, 4 min)

Rising is an animated animated short film/music video for the album Rising. A Requiem for Father Murphy by Father Murphy
(Avant! Records, Ramp Local, 2018). The narrative of Rising is not a straight forward one. Elementary and delicate dynamics between figures are set in motion (the act of seeing, of witnessing, of touching, of giving and being given to) in a series of tableaux pervaded by sentiments of loss and grief, and by the sense of the unexpected. The video is shot in stop motion, using cut-outs and objects made of old book cloth, paper, fabric, wood, stone, feathers, flowers.

(Richard Reeves, Creston, British Columbia, 2 min)

Transformed images become sounds. Experimental abstract animation created by applying both sound and picture directly onto film.

(Nick Shively, Seattle, WA, 4 min)

New love in a cartoon daydream. The music video for Falling by Dude York.

On the issue of climate change especially, not all are equal, and not all have the same power. This animated short is a call to those in power to do the right thing.
