The 2022 edition of The Trippy Animation Night is in more than one way a round up of outrageous samples dug up from the vast reservoir of animated and manipulated film.
Volume 9 will provide the curious onlooker with a diversity of entries that range from educational erotics, moving lounge-wallpaper, ‘rorschached’ split-screen pictures to very likeable images of damaged and decomposed celluloid.
No boundaries whatsoever, as long as it keeps moving on a groovy beat.
The keywords are: Found Footage, Visual Music, Cutout Cavalcades, Moving Statics such as Pixillated Photoplays plus the usual portion of miscellaneous mishaps like commercial stuff and exploits of bad taste.
Your host will revive ‘The Wacky World of Terrytoons’ in a special tribute to Paul Terry, Cartoon-Tycoon and poverty row-alternative for the sugar-sweet stuff from the Disney-factory.
WARNING: This program is totally inadequate to reflect the times we live in at this moment when it comes to political correct guidelines. It contains samples of obnoxious animation loaded with racial & sexual stereotypes that represented yesteryear’s popular culture. However, I look forward to being your MC and host again for this ‘Ninth Configuration’ of Trippy Trickfilms.
