An Evening with PES

Ages 8 and up

Fri, Dec 6, 2013 7 PM

With his stop-motion animations made from household objects, PES (aka Adam Pesapane) makes the world around us feel like a place full of possibility and play. In a presentation sure to delight all ages, the filmmaker and digital artist visits to share many of his inventive short films and commercials and to talk about his creative process. Last year his 95-second-long Fresh Guacamole became the shortest film ever nominated for an Academy Award. PES is currently at work on creating a movie adaptation of the Garbage Pail Kids (from the notorious trading cards of the mid-1980s). (app. 80 mins., video)
