Animator Glen Keane screens his latest short animated film at the Museum of the Moving Image on Thursday, February 5, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.
The stunning new short film Duet is the latest work by legendary animator Glen Keane. In his 38 years at Walt Disney Feature Animation, Keane created and animated such legendary characters as Ariel in The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Pocahontas, the Beast from Beauty and the Beast and Tarzan. Keane left Disney in 2012 to start his own production company and pursue projects that use new technology to expand the art form. Duet tells the story of Mia and Tosh, and how their lives weave together. The unique, interactive nature of the story allows the viewer to seamlessly follow the journey of Mia and Tosh from birth to adulthood. Based on the movement of their devices, users can choose to follow one of three characters, uncovering new environments and exploring alternative storylines. In a unique and illuminating presentation, Keane will show Duet and then do a live demonstration of his creative process, along with a behind-the-scenes look at the technology used to create this unprecedented work. This is a rare chance for aspiring animators and fans to see and learn from a true legend in the field. Recommended for ages 12+
Tickets: $15 ($9 members at Film Lover, Dual, and Family levels / free for Silver Screen members and above). Order tickets online.

Comments Off on NYC – Icons of Animation Exhibit
The Society of Illustrators celebrates the work of four iconic illustrators- Peter de Sève, William Joyce, Carlos Nine, and Bill Plympton – with an exhibit featuring the original illustrations from numerous movies and shorts.
About the Artists
Peter de Sève:
Peter de Sève’s illustration and character designs are known throughout the world. His work spans three decades and various media, including magazines, books, print and televised advertising, animated feature films and magazines. Best recognized for his many New Yorker covers and his character designs for the three blockbuster Ice Age movies (“Scrat” is now an international icon), de Sève has also contributed to such films as Mulan, A Bug’s Life, Tarzan, and Finding Nemo.
His many distinctions include the prestigious Hamilton King Award from the Society of Illustrators, a Clio Award for a Nike television commercial, a Spectrum Annual of Fantastic Art gold medal, a Soleil d’Or award from the Festival BD Sollies-Ville in France, and a Visual Effects Society Award nomination for outstanding animated character design for Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.
Peter was honored with an Emmy Award for Outstanding Character Design for his work on Sesame Street’s Abby Cadabby’s Flying Fairy School. He has received three Annie Award nominations for Character Design in a Feature Production, the most recent for his work on Arthur Christmas.
Peter lives in Brooklyn, NY, with his wife Randall (with whom he recently collaborated on his first children’s book, The Duchess of Whimsy) and their two daughters, Paulina and Fia.
William Joyce has achieved world-wide recognition as an author, illustrator and pioneer in the digital and animation industry.
In February 2012, he won an Academy Award for The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, an animated short film about the curative powers of story. In the past two years, he has also written seven hard copy Simon & Schuster children’s books including The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, The Guardians of Childhood book series: The Man in the Moon, The Sandman: Story of Sanderson Mansnoozie, Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King, E. Aster Bunnymund and the Warrior Eggs at the Earth’s Core! And Toothania: Queen of the Tooth Fairy Armies.
Named by Newsweek magazine as “One of the 100 people to watch in the new millennium”, William has been heavily involved in the world of digital animation from its full-scale inception at Pixar Animation. His projects have been produced by nearly every major film studio including Disney, Twentieth Century Fox and DreamWorks Animation. His feature films include Rise of the Guardians, Robots and Meet the Robinsons and his television series George Shrinks and Rolie Polie Olie for which he won three Emmy Awards.
Additionally, he is the writer, producer, and production designer on the Blue Sky Studios feature film, Epic, inspired by his book The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs.
Carlos Nine is a renowned illustrator, comics author, painter, sculptor, animation film writer, and author of several books. His works have been published in Argentina, Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, U.S.A., Brazil, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
He was awarded awarded on several occasions the Silver Clio in Illustration (Clio Awards, New York, 1993), the Caran D’Ache award for best illustrator (Rome, Italy, 1995), the Prix de l’Ecole Supérieure de l’image (France, 2001) and the First Prize at the Angoulême Festival (France, 2001). He has published books and held exhibitions in numerous countries. He has been invited to give seminars, workshops, and courses in his country and in France.
He has also worked for several magazines and journals, including Le Monde (Paris), The New Yorker (USA), Noticas, Humor, and the newspapers La Nación and Clarín.
Mr. Plympton is considered the King of Indie Animation, and is the only person to hand draw an entire animated feature film. Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, he graduated from Portland State University in Graphic Design. Bill moved to New York City in 1968 and began his career creating cartoons for publications such as New York Times, National Lampoon, Playboy and Screw.
In 1987, he was nominated for an Oscar® for his animated short Your Face. In 2005, Bill received another Oscar® nomination, this time for his short Guard Dog. Push Comes to Shove won the prestigious Cannes 1991 Palme d’Or; and in 2001, another short film, Eat, won the Grand Prize for Short Films in Cannes Critics’ Week.
After producing many shorts that appeared on MTV and Spike and Mike’s, he turned his talent to feature films. Since 1991, he’s made 10 feature films. 7 of them, The Tune, Mondo Plympton, I Married A Strange Person, Mutant Aliens, Hair High, Idiots and Angels, and Cheatin’, are all animated features.
Bill Plympton has also collaborated with Kanye West and Weird Al Yankovic in a number of music videos and book projects. In 2006, he received the Winsor McCay Lifetime Achievement Award from The Annie Awards.
