February Club Meeting – Feb. 21st

LA 3-D Movie Festival Award Winners in February

The February meeting of the Los Angeles 3-D Club will be Thursday, February 21,  7:45-10:00pm at the Armory Center For the Arts 145 N. Raymond, Pasadena, CA 91103.

It’s Awards Season, so we’ll take a look at the award winning 3-D films from the recent 15th Annual LA 3-D Movie festival:

1st Place in the USA film category  – Cryogen Children by Sadie Schiffman-Eller. The film is a multi-media animation centered around the questions of identity, inheritance, and ethics that are embedded within the topic of sperm donation. As the child of two mothers, conceived with sperm from the California Cryobank, Sadie approaches this topic from an intimate, but also interrogative standpoint. The piece involves a confrontation with a conception that is embosomed by the love of two mothers, but also linked to a multi-million dollar industry and to a nameless man.

The 2nd Place USA film award – the animated music video The Simple Carnival – Go Away I Like You Too Much by filmmaker and musician Jeff Boller. We’ll also see an in depth look at his one-man production process.

?In the International Film category, the 1st Place award - Une Histoire D’Amour by Julien Charpier. This French short is described by the filmmaker as ?”a sidereal, digital and experimental journey, by way of a declaration of love sent to the woman I love.” The film uses stereoscopic multiple exposures and projected textures, combined with a haunting soundtrack to relate the intimate relationship between a couple separated by space and time.

2nd Place in the International Film category is shared by three films: Stereoscopic Society by Kate Sullivan, a short documentary from the UK about the 125-year-old organization for stereo photographers; Space… Spaces! a science fiction/comedy by French director Esther Jacopin; and from the Czech Republic, Domino, Secret of the Lost World by Marek Audy and Richard Bouda, a documentary about discovering the longest quartzite caves of the world on table mountains of Venezuela.

The meeting is free, and open to the public.
