If you’ve ever read my Twitter feed, you are likely to have seen my numerous retweets of Carolyn Gair’s amazing stop motion mini films. These tasty petit fours of guerrilla cinema are only about 15 seconds long on average, but they pack a delightfully powerful punch of humor, action, and emotion. Carolyn has a show tonight at Gallery 839 from 6PM – 9PM, and it seemed only fitting to have a compilation of Carolyn’s tiny masterpieces playing during her show. After all, Carolyn is an animator and story teller by trade, and many of the objects that come alive in her films are the very same upcycled and recycled vintage treasures found in her assemblage art pieces.
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Carolyn Gair. Carolyn is one of the most talented and generous artists I know, and I’m thrilled that she’s enjoying so much success with her films and found object art. I can think of few people who deserve to be recognized for their talent and creativity more than Ms. Gair does.
Caveat: please disregard the trailer attached to “le petit films de carolyn”. Godzilla had a rider in his contract that stipulated that he would be the one to cut the trailer for the film. So, well, the trailer is about what you’d expect from Godzilla. My apologies in advance… Click here to view “le petit films de carolyn”.
