Highlights of animation in the heady decade of bling, power suits, street cred, MTV, and especially the early, radical days of Britain’s Channel 4 Television. It was a golden age, with great college programs, money from Channel 4 , and big budget commercials to pay the bills. Young and established artists grouped into boutique studios to make music videos, TV ads, and independent films, and this program is a sampler of some of their most exciting and innovative work.
GLAS Animation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2014. Our core mission is to cultivate and promote the art and science of animation. We provide a unique platform for independent animation, champion diverse and underrepresented voices, and emphasize exceptional directors and artists that push visual, conceptual, and narrative boundaries within the cinematic artform. We are a community-driven organization that not only exhibits animated films, but creates a context and language for a shared understanding and appreciation of animation in the United States.
