Here courtesy of PEER and Animate Projects is a PDF of the Joe Ewart-designed pamphlet edition of ‘Animate Me’, my short story that was commissioned to accompany Out of Site, four new films by Savinder Bual, Kota Ezawa, Karolina Glusiec and Margaret Salmon.
You were always blagging equipment. Not like now when you can do stop-motion with any old digital camera – or on your phone – bung it through whatever free graphic converter software you can find and have the Quicktime on Youtube in the space of an hour! Back then it was about booking the studio, putting your name down for a lightbox; getting in early to use the rostrum camera or one of the Steenbecks. A different world.
Pick up a copy of ‘Animate Me’ in the gallery, or download a copy here, by clicking on the link above, or clicking-through this cover image.
N.B. It may take a bit of trial and error to print the pamphlet double-sided, depending on your printer. You might be able to do it by adjusting your printer settings, or by printing page 1 and then reloading the paper manually, so that both sides are the same way up when the PDF is printed in landscape format.
Out of Site, PEER in association with Animate Projects, runs from 16 January to 8 March 2014. The films are viewable from Hoxton Street between 3pm and 8pm Wednesday to Saturday, or watch the films online here.
