Brainwash 2010 Animation

Among this year’s movies, we have a great raft of animation, as in years past. Voltaire’s Demiurge Emesis was also shown at the IndieFest and written up in ASIFA, the Int’l Animation Society newsletter, by Karl Cohen. Demiurge is narrated by Danny Elfman, better known for his fantastic work as the founder of the band Oingo Boingo (in the old days) and on movie soundtracks (including, recently, Milk). Duncan Maddux, our lead in the Brainwash broadcast series, who will MC our shows this year in person, was in Milk and ended up briefly featured on the 2009 Academy Awards.

Other animation to be shown includes:

  • Sunset to Sunset by Kent Hayward, about a walk across LA (that’s right – a WALK in LA!)
  • and the aforementioned Demiurge, both Friday night, Aug. 13th.

On Saturday, Aug. 14th, even more great animation includes:

  • The fantastic The Magnitude of the Continental Divides by Christopher Coleman;
  • Phillip the Safety Egg by Mike Owens (looks straight out of Adult Swim);
  • The Empress by Lyle Pisio (an Absolute MUST SEE for all animation connoisseurs);
  • Billionaire by Antonio Figueroa, about a game cataloging the roots of our economic collapse;
  • Frank DanCoolo: Paranormal Drug Dealer by Andrew Jones, not an animated movie per se, but featuring notable CGI while Frank and the world’s best reporter, Holly Malone, hallucinate;
  • and finally Goodnight Harvey, with some animation bidding a less than fond farewell to a formerly beloved childhood Muppets — sorry, “Muppos” — icon.

So bring a friend, bring a chair to enjoy the movies and see you there!
