Thanks to everyone who came to the WIA meeting today. Here are some dates to mark on your calendars:
Sat. October 13th- A group of us are going to see Animation Nations, animation shorts playing with the Chicago International Film Festival. (5:30 show) http://www.chicagofilmfestival.org/cgi-bin/WebObjects/CIFFSite.woa/3/wa/pages/Shorts
Sat. Oct. 20th- We’re going to the Children’s International Film Festival to see the 10:30 show of The Three Robbers with a new Goofy short, How to Hook up Your Home Theater, playing before it. (Check back here for exciting news regarding that!)
November 7th- Bill Plympton is having a preview of his nearly complete film, Idiots and Angels, at the Music Box. Chicago will be the first audience to see this film before it’s sent off to Sundance. It is a bit late though, but should be well worth it! 10pm
We decided not to have a sketchcrawl for October because the month is already full, so let’s have one in November. Please think of indoor locations for the next sketchcrawl.
One idea we had is to have a bit of “show and tell” time at the end of each meeting. Anyone who has anything they’d like to show the group is welcome to at the end of each meeting. It’d be great to see what everyone else is working on. Also, if anyone would like to give tutorials/demonstrations, please let us know. We might have a Flash demonstration at the next meeting by Patrick Cheng.
We’re also in the process of scheduling a guest speaker, Priscilla Olson, to come back and show us more of her animation. It should be in November or December.
The next meeting will be at the same time and same place on November 14th.
