On Friday (Dec. 9), the Downtown Independent in Los Angeles hosts a screening of Late Night Work Club’s Strangers.
Late Night Work Club is a film collective comprised of animators from all over the world, among them CalArts alumni Kirsten Lepore (Film/Video MFA 12), Jeanette Bonds (Film/Video MFA 13) and recent ADC Young Guns Award winner Sean Buckelew (Film/Video MFA 14).
From the press release:
Late Night Work Club is a loose, rotating collective of indie animators. That is, animators who do independent, non-commercial work. It’s an excuse to bring a whole bunch of us together and make something great, and also to promote the work of the artists involved. Some of the best, most personal, experimental and vital animation going right now is happening on the internet. It’s being made late at night when other people have gone to sleep and on weekends when everyone else is out. It’s being made by students, freelancers, full-timers and folks with unrelated day jobs.
Strangers was released online in late November, followed by a multi-city tour with stops in Sydney, London, New York, Chicago and Paris. It also features work by animators Alex Grigg, Loup Blaster, Caleb Wood and Nicolas Menard.
Lepore, Bonds and Buckelew will be present at Friday’s screening for a Q&A, as well as an additional screening of Ship of Fools by Josh Shaffner (Film/Video MFA 15).
