Join us on Jan 18th as Director Owen Klatte discusses the creative risks and rewards of making a short experimental film, using his latest award-winning stop motion film “Of Wood.” This madman, ahem, animator, has made a film entirely out of a stump of wood, carefully carving away layers over many years.

So come, eat free pizza, mingle, and then hear more about how he approached this challenge and his journey throughout his 25+ year career!

A little more about the speaker:

Owen Klatte is an animator and director in both stop motion and CG. His credits include “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, “Gumby”, “James and the Giant Peach”, Disney’s “Dinosaur”, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1”, “Anomalisa”, and his recent personal film, “Of Wood”.

Make sure you RSVP through this eventbrite, as tickets, pizza, and precious seats are limited.

Parking & Entry

There’s a range of parking ramps downtown and some street parking after 6. Enter through the 6th street doors- someone will let you in, as the building naturally locks at 6, so don’t use the 7th street door! Head to the first floor lounge on the left where people are mingling.
