New Czech Stop Motion Children's Film

Attention Gabba fans of all ages in the greater Los Angeles area!

As animation producer for Yo Gabba Gabba! and a die-hard stop-motion animation fan, I highly recommend checking out the one time only L.A. premiere of a new stop-motion animated Czech film, In the Attic, at The Silent Movie Theater / Cinefamily this Saturday December 4 at 2pm. Located at 611 N. Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, California 90036 - Free parking available across the street.

It's part of the Los Angeles Animation Festival International that's happening this weekend. This is animation legend, Jiří Barta's first feature in 25 years and has been described as a kind of European version of Toy Story. I'm told it's definitely kid-friendly, although, there are subtitles. Barta is seriously one of the greats so don't miss this!

Watch the trailer and tell me this doesn't look like an amazing work of art!

Be sure to look at the festival's full schedule. There are lots of great films coming up, including a special screening of short works by claymation master Will Vinton! (California Raisins, The Noid) December 5 at 1:45pm. Will Vinton will be there in person too! Don't miss this rare chance to meet a living legend of animation history! Who doesn't love raisins?
