MY NAME IS PA-YUN: AN ANIMATED DOCUMENTARY

THURSDAY, MAY 24 at 8 PM

Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission

My name is Pa-Yun  is an animated documentary about a man who escaped North Korea before the Korean War. His childhood to adolescence was affected by Japanese colonialism, the Russian invasion, the rise of the dictatorship in North Korea and then the Korean War. He left his troublesome memories in the Korean peninsula and he has been living in the United States for the past 60 years. The interview takes him and myself to his childhood home in Pyongyang. We travel back in time to witness the political shift in the Korean peninsula and the changes in the lives of people.” — Young Joo Lee

Also screening is Disgraceful Blue (10 min 24, digital animation)

“Making of Disgraceful Blue started from my interpretation of the dreams I had and editing them to create an allegorical story about an Asian woman giving birth to a daughter with blue eyes. The story depicts the journey of a heroine, being “the other” in a conforming society. She becomes part of the majority by hiding her otherness only to realise that in the end her inner “blueness” doesn’t die, because it will only be born again as another form, in another generation.”

CHOREOGRAPHY OF THE INANIMATE: A 3D ANIMATION WORKSHOP

http://www.echoparkfilmcenter.org/events/choreography-of-the-inanimate-a-3d-animation-workshop-with-young-joo-lee/

2 SESSIONS: May 22 and May 23, 7 – 9 PM

Are you familiar with 3-D animation? This workshop is to combine the 3-D scanning technology with animation to make a simple but unique animation. In the first session, we will watch some examples of 3-D scanned animated objects. Then we will learn how to 3-D scan an object or a sculpture using Kinect hardware and Skanect software. In the second session, we will animate the 3-D object using Blender to create a short animation. Prior knowledge of Blender or other 3-D modeling software is helpful but not necessary.
