Local Sightings 2018 – Trash Mountain

9/22/2018 | Northwest Film Forum

Film & Media Arts Capitol Hill/Central District

In 2017, the Graphics Interchange Format (better known as the GIF), turned 30 years old. In that time, looping animated GIFs have evolved from their niche origins on garish Geocities websites into a widespread new form of visual language — one millions of people communicate with every day via their phones and computers. In this two-part workshop, Seattle-based GIF artist Kelton Sears will first walk the audience through a number of methods for creating both photographic and hand-animated GIFs themselves. Then, Sears will present and discuss his new long-form animated GIF comic Trash Mountain, an entry into the relatively new field of narrative GIF-based storytelling.
