Hand-Powered Cinema: International Flipbook Festival
If you're in British Columbia's lower mainland and you want to see some handmade moving pictures, you're in luck. Vancouver is the final stop of the International Flipbook Festival, to which around one hundred artists have contributed their thumb-activated works. In this small, well-lit room the visitor will find animation, documentary, strip-tease, surrealism, and broccoli-chopping, along with everything in between.
I was able to interview Candice Hopkins, the curator of the exhibition; just click the video to your right to check out this unique exhibition.

(This interview and detail footage was shot using the video function of a 6MP point-an'-shoot digital camera: you can try this at home! The mic is dreadful, though, making both Ms. Hopkins and I sound like Daffy Duck. I assure you that, in real life, my diction is brilliant.)
