Pencils, Pixels and Puppets

Scrap Metal has been selected to show in Pencils, Pixels and Puppets, the Sheridan Animation Showcase being held at the TIFF Bell Lightbox Theatre on May 8th!!!

May 8, 2012

TIFF Bell Lightbox Theatre
350 King Street West, Toronto
Cinema 2

7-9 P.M.
The TIFF Theatre is famous for its Toronto International Film Festival, a highly prestigious festival which very few students have the opportunity to show in this because of tight competition, and also because it requires a 35 mm or beta print exhibition copy... which I do not have... *cough, cough*

This Sheridan Animation Showcase event consists of specially selected student films created at Sheridan College in the past 5 years. It is organised by Sheridan animation professors Chris Walsh and Angela, with input from various other professors. I do not know the specific line-up, but I do know that it will be an all-star line up of the best films to come out of Sheridan, including 3 other stop-motions shorts. If you are in or near the Toronto area, I highly recommend checking out this event, I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Tickets are available to purchase online: I don't know how much, but it won't be too expensive. There will be mingling in the Lightbox lounge afterwards, hopefully with many old friends and the potential to create many new connections. Spread the word and come on out if you can!
