Special Event: Mad God plus Skype Q&A with Oscar and Emmy Award-winning visual effects supervisor and producer, Phil Tippett - Rated R

Phil Tippett is an award-winning visual effects supervisor and producer, who specializes in creature design, stop-motion and computerized character animation. Over his career, he has assisted ILM and DreamWorks, and in 1984 formed his own company, Tippett Studio. His work has appeared in movies such as the original Star Wars trilogy, Jurassic Park, and RoboCop.

Mad God is an experimental, hand-made, animated film, set in a Miltonesque world of monsters, mutants and mad scientists. The sets, creatures, effects and spirit are, in every way, independent and created from the heart. Sometimes that heart is bursting with love for the craft, while other times it's punctured and bleeding all over the place... 24 frames per second.

Doors 5:30pm. Dinner at 6:00pm. Movie at 7:00pm. Q∓A immediately following. $15 Table/$20 Couch.
