Happy Holidays…

…from all of us at ASIFA-East.

For the Viewseum’s first Holiday occasion, here are two clips: one from the past, and one from the present.


The first is a set of Holiday identifications made for Nickelodeon by Curious Pictures, submitted by Robert Lyons. The clips are traditionally animated, and feature techniques such as back-lit art, lens filter effects, water color in time lapse, motion control camera moves, and in-camera multiple exposures. Very simple and very warm.

The second is a rendition of the “Nutcracker Suite” by citizens of a swamp, animated by Dayna Gonzalez. Complete with colorful characters including frogs, toads, rabbits, possums, beavers, owls and fireflies. Dayna offers a nice, serene gift to us all in this clip.

And with both of these animations in mind, we are reminded that there is more animation history to be a part of in the coming years.

Happy Holidays, everyone.
