swiPed by David Chai
Texters texting, tweeters tweeting, likers liking, posters posting, Googlers Googling, Amazonians Amazoning, webheads surfing, snappers chatting, pinnters pinning, tubers tubing, tenders tindering, Netflixers chilling… are we binging too much? More connected than ever, but more distant by the day. Is humanity being swiped away?

Beatniks By mick cusimano
The Beatniks appeared on the American scene in 1959 when a book The Holy Barbarians by anthropologist Lawrence Lipton chronicled the beatniks/dropouts of Venice California. The book became a best seller in part because there was a glossary in the back listing beat lingo. The mainstream media ridiculed and caricatured the Beatniks every chance they got. One memorable character was Maynard G. Krebs on the Dobie Gillis Show. When someone suggested that he get a job he would freak out and reply "Work?" B grade beach movies featured beatnik characters as comic relief. This animated movie is a caricature of that phenomenon.
The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse
By Marc Russo
The signs have begun. Silence, the first horsemen, prevents us from communicating with each other. If we do not communicate, we cannot remember our past and learn from our mistakes. Our silence brings the second sign: Decay. The decay of our social order and the material things that represent it. By ignoring the decay of our world, we are ignoring time‚ Nature’s singular tool to warn us of our impending turning point. The next sign will be our voracious Consumption of natural resources as we build around the ruins of our past. As we continue to consume and multiply, we are literally eating and destroying the earth from under our feet. It is impossible to forecast what mutations this will spawn; however, it is my belief that Mother Nature will defend herself, which will ultimately lead to our Death.

Guest Artist - Bruce Bickford
From his home workshop/film studio in SeaTac, famously reclusive and idiosyncratic Pacific Northwest animation artist Bruce Bickford has for three decades produced undeniably visionary art films. Although self-taught, the enigmatic and esteemed animation pioneer -- once deemed "the world's greatest animator" -- has earned a worldwide following of animation aficionados enthralled by his ingenious, disturbing, lysergic, phantasmagorical, often violent, eye-popping, and mind-bogglingly unique work. Acquiring a film camera as a teenager, Bickford began experimenting with modeling clay and a primitive stop-motion animation technique (what is called "clay animation") -- a labor-intensive process that Bickford is rightly considered both a pioneer and master of. He gained his initial cult-status fame by animating various 1970s Frank Zappa films (for which Bickford is considered a father of the subsequent music-video revolution), but his most highly regarded piece is the masterful and award-winning 1988 feature Prometheus' Garden. Bickford's work has also been highlighted in Zappa's 1990 The Amazing Mr. Bickford film; exhibited at the Seattle Art Museum; and featured in the 1994 history book Clay Animation: American Highlights 1908 to the Present, the 1995 film The Clay Spirit, and two bio-documentary films, 2004's award-winning Monster Road and 2008's Luck of a Foghorn.
