Directed by Devon Damonte

Washington 65 mins

Renowned Olympia animator Devon Damonte has been working with camera-less, direct animation filmmaking for over three decades, his work is recognized in such prominent books such as Maureen Furniss’s The Animation Bible and Kathryn Ramey’s Experimental Filmmaking: Breaking the Machine. Produced directly on 35 and 16mm, Damonte’s films are filled with abstract imagery fashioned from surprising graphic sources such as Christmas ornaments, plastic bread bags, and duct tape patterns. The program will feature a range of his experimental works, including a projector performance with a live score by Portland band Hathor Vergotis.

Damonte will also conduct a workshop on July 11 exploring his unique hands-on filmmaking techniques. Selections from the workshop will appear on the big screen! Registration details here.
