~FLIPBOOK FESTIVAL/Secret Project Robot
Little Cakes presents the 4th INTERNATIONAL FLIPBOOK FESITIVAL at SECRET PROJECT ROBOT, 210 Kent Ave, WILLIAMSBURG, BROOKLYN.
The show went up Jan 19th, but runs until SUNDAY, Feb 11th, 2007 – in fact there’s
going to be a VALENTINE’S DAY CLOSING PARTY on SUNDAY Feb 11th (7-10pm),
with 2 bands playing: KOCHO BI SEXUAL and MUDBOY – since both bands use
organs, i.e. keyboards I guess, its being billed as the: THE DOUBLE ORGAN EXTRAVAGANZA !
(get it? .. Valentine’s Day .. organs …!! )
The exhibit itself is small but mighty ingenious. You can pick up the books and handle them, up close and in person. In fact there are over 100 flipbooks on display. Most of them are small, palm sized. All of them are fun to handle, most are very original & special.
“Devised four years ago by artist ANDREW JEFFREY WRIGHT, as a film festival
without film, each of the flipbooks have been submitted into one of 4 categories
Live Action, Animation, Experimental and Documentary. A prize (of $1.00) goes to
the winner of each category” – (press release)
photos from the opening, including the winning entries, to post shortly
