From my inbox... From Lilli Carre:
Hello ladies and gents!
I'm organizing a new experimental animation festival called Eyeworks with Alexander Stewart, and we're very excited to announce the details!
It will be a mix of abstract animation and unconventional character animation, shown on 16mm film and video.
It's taking place November 6th in Chicago, at 247 S. State Street at the De Paul CDM Theatre.
Please spread the word to those who might be interested in this project, and we hope to see some of you there!
Sincerely, Lilli Carré & Alexander Stewart
