Hadrian over at Cinefile in West L.A. just sent us the heads-up for a great event going on at the Silent Movie Theatre this Wednesday, 8/15 at 9pm. Brent Green is an animator from rural Pennsylvania whose unique style has drawn comparisons to Tim Burton and Adam Jones. Hadrian blogs:


Brent Green an untrained, completely original animator from rural Pennyslvania, who plays music along with his short films, while narrating them live in freeform, semi-improvised sounding streams of words. He has a homegrown, handmade aesthetic, and a exhibition style deeply influenced by music performance. The New York Times called his films "some of the most original animations we have seen in years". His work has played at Sundance, The Getty Museum, The Hammer, The Warhol Museum, and this is a rare chance to see him in an intimate, small theatre, and very few people know it's happening, so there's still tickets available.


Tickets are only $10, and you can buy them online here. Check out Brent's website, NervousFilms here if you can't make it this Wednesday.
