An evening with Don Hertzfeldt


The Silent Theatre – Los Angeles
At the young age of 32, Don Hertzfeldt has amassed a body a of work unparalleled in modern animation. His meticulously crafted hand-drawn and -animated shorts, produced without the use of computers, continues to amaze and inspire audiences globally, and on Nov. 30th, Hertzfeldt will be in-person at the Cinefamily to introduce the L.A. premiere of his latest short, I Am So Proud Of You. His longest piece to date, the 22-minute film was nearly two years in the making, as its special effects were meticulously created directly on film, using traditional double exposures, in-camera mattes, and innovative experimental techniques. This film is also the eagerly-anticipated second chapter to Everything Will Be OK, winner of the Sundance Film Festival’s Grand Jury Award in Short Filmmaking and named by many critics as one of the “best films of 2007″.

The screening will be immediately followed by a live on-stage interview and audience Q&A with Hertzfeldt.
