Visiting Artist Kelly Sears Hosted by Camera Absurda 
Wednesday, Dec. 4th 2013 at 10:30am in VA 287
We are pleased to have animator and filmmaker Kelly Sears discuss her work!
Kelly Sears is an animator and filmmaker living in Los Angeles, CA. She received a B.A. from Hampshire College and an M.F.A. from the University of California, San Diego. Her collage animation media practice draws from genres such as experimental film, documentary, essay films, recycled cinema and critical fiction. She uses appropriated imagery from Post WW2 America, reworking discarded magazines, books, orphaned films and other ephemera, to investigate contemporary political narratives of power that include manifest destiny, expansionist doctrines, occupation, and surveillance. She uses a combination of analog and digital animation, video processing and sound design to intervene with the source images. Her work has screened at museums, galleries and film festivals, such as MOMA, The Hammer Museum, LACMA, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Machine Project, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Light Industry, Sundance Film Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival and Black Maria Film Festival. She has been awarded residencies from Yaddo, The Core Program/Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and the Galveston Artist Residency. Currently she teaches Video Art at Scripps College.

Artist Research:Brothers Quay
These two identical brothers are famous for their stop-animations. They tend to use disassembled parts such as doll heads, screws and inorganic or organic materials in their films. Also they’re fond of setting their films in dark atmosphere.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32ordNUpBgo
Stille Nacht 1988
This was one of my first short films to see from them. Shooting the film in black and white creates a night time feel. The use of the metallic dust that later builds up and repelled by a magnet block creates “snow” in the film.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_xKYm_pxsY
"The Calligrapher" BBC2 Indent 1991
A rejected BBC2 TV Indent that was commissioned by the Quays themselves. The usage of paper cutout figure is reminiscent to Gilliam’s works. The part where one single stroke of the quill produces numerous quills is intriguing. Also the part where the drawn wing turns into a quill that the paper figure sticks into his hair, that transformation scene has got to be one of the best transition from a flat work into a three dimensional object.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYFZ4kIRaNg
The Cabinet of Jan Svankmajer 1984
This film is a homage to Jan Svankmajer and is less dark than their usual dark films. The music they used is upbeat (like Svankmajer’s short films) and the lighting is brighter but they still use the doll head puppetry as props.
