When: Sun., July 31, 1-4:30 p.m. 2011
Animation Day at the IMA, which is an awful lot of rhyming going on. Ever wonder how Disney and Pixar manage to make fish, cars and action figures seem so lifelike and filled with personality? Following an exhibition of 9 animated shorts, local animator John Ludwick will highlight the character creation process. Pixar animator John Capobianco’s new work, “Leonardo,” will be part of the line-up of shorts, and he’ll make an appearance via Skype and give attendees a glimpse of his latest project, “Galileo.” Interactive activities follow. Ages 4 and up welcome. For more info, visit www.imamuseum.org/film/animation-day.
