A Tribute to Animator Bill Plympton
Friday, September 18, 2015 8:00 pm
Event hosted by: School of Visual Arts
As part of After School Special: The 2015 School of Visual Arts Alumni Film & Animation Festival, we are pleased to present a special screening of some of Bill Plympton’s (1969 Cartooning) greatest works, followed by a Q&A with the award-winning master animator himself. The evening will include Plympton’s Academy Award-nominated short film Your Face (1987), the New York City premiere of the new short The Loneliest Stoplight (2015) featuring the voice of Patton Oswalt, the award-winning feature film Cheatin’ (2013), and sneak previews of the upcoming films Hitler’s Folly and Revengeance. The Q&A will be moderated by current SVA student Steven Duffy (BFA 2016 Animation). Following the screening and Q&A, a special signing with Plympton will be held in the SVA Theatre lobby.
The evening will be preceded by the New York City premiere of the short film Dime Crimes #34, by director Ed Hellman (MPS 2013 Live Action Short Film) and alumni from the MPS Live Action Short Film & BFA Cartooning departments.
