About the Event
Hands in Frame is an exciting evening of short films, specifically short films featuring experimenation in animation and puppetry. These films utlize various mediums and modes of both live and animated object manipulation to push storytelling boundaries and activate the imagination.
Mine by Shayna Stripe - In the world of MINE, objects have perspective, nature is sentient, and all matter is vibrant. To examine the human urge to claim, own, and dominate ‘things’, creator/performer Shayna Strype takes audiences through space and time.
Our Bodies Like Dams by Sarah Finn - Our Bodies Like Dams is a live multimedia performance set in a handmade, flooding city. This part love-story, part eco-fantasy, imagines a woman’s unexpected metamorphosis in the face of romantic and coastal decay, as her and her partner’s apartment floods entirely.
Out Of Office by Emma Wiseman and Emily Zemba - Out Of Office is a short film based on a puppet show. It is about office supplies achieving dominance as humans succumb to apocalypse.
Amass by Andrew Murodck - Using techniques in puppetry, Amass explores loss, loneliness, and the fragile human psyche in the wake of Covid-19. Featuring original music by Sean Devare. Commissioned by Art Yard (Frenchtown, NJ).
