Man In A Cat has its first Los Angeles showing at around 1.30pm, Sunday 4th December at The Silent Movie Theatre. It’ll be screening just before ABP’s L.A. Draw: Los Angeles Animators Panel and Brunch which is at 2pm.
The screening looks like loads of fun, being a showcase of exciting LA-based animators and including a panel discussion with animators from Adventure Time and The Life And Times Of Tim. I really like that Man In A Cat has a chance to stand out on its own before such a great show, rather than being hidden in the main Best of ABP screening. Normal festival screenings are great, but every one we’re at gets overshadowed by festival sweepers Eagleman Stag and/or A Morning Stroll.
The whole of Animation Breakdown looks great. There’s an overall Polish theme, a personal appearance from Don Hertzfeldt to complete his “Bill” Trilogy, and a host of lost Walt Disney silent Laugh-O-Grams compiled by Jerry Beck.
