HAPPY 103rd BIRTHDAY, JULES!!!

“Visualizing Art History: Experimental Animation and It’s Mentor, Jules Engel” situates the art and mentorship of Jules Engel within a contemporary art history that reaches across the boundaries of geography, education and media. Engel’s intense personality, wry humor and generosity as a teacher and mentor produced almost four generations of students who have forever changed the art form and industry. Engel’s story is intrinsically linked to the art history of Modernism, as experimental animation and fine art. Not only is the significance of Jules Engel's influences as an artist-mentor-educator on generations of students captured in this documentary by Janeann Dill, but a here-to-fore largely invisible art history for the art form of experimental animation is made visible. 

Principal photography of interviews, animation, research in selected archives of art historical footage is slated to begin production JUNE 5th!

SAS ANNOUNCES 2011 McLAREN-LAMBART AWARD

Pierre Floquet, the author of "Le langage comique de Tex Avery," is the recipient of the 2011 McLaren-Lambart Award for the Best Scholarly Book on Animation. This book, published in French by CinémAnimationS, is a detailed analysis of the cinematic nuances at play in the cartoons directed by Tex Avery at MGM from 1942-1951. With remarkably complex insights into Avery's comic language, the author distills what at first glance might seem like a director's reliance on coarse gags and repetitive formulae into a sophisticated colloquy with moviegoers. The manner in which Avery engages viewers on the nature of cinema has always been disarming, played for laughs instead of reflection, but French film scholars recognized him as an important auteur as early as the 1960s. This recent book in many ways is a fulfillment of this earlier recognition, a culminating study of Tex Avery's influential body of work. Pierre Floquet's writing on the concept of distantiation, from Althusser and especially Brecht, is essential. It points to a genuine concern with the form of the language of cartoons that is just as vital in any consideration of modern animation as it is with 
Tex Avery’s œuvre.

The McLaren-Lambart Award is given annually by the Society for Animation Studies. The selection committee is chaired by Tom Klein, with our judging panel comprised of Jean Detheux (NFB/visual music animator), Janeann Dill, Ph.D (Founder, IIACI/Institute for the Interdisciplinary Art and Creative Intelligence) and José García-Moreno (Chair, Animation/Loyola Marymount University). This award recognizes the finest contributions by international scholars to the advancement of animation studies. From a previous co-affiliation that it had with the National Film Board of Canada, this award is named in memory of Norman McLaren and Evelyn Lambart.

UA Digital Film Project 
Selected For Notable European Exhibition
By Lisa Frederick and Richard LeComte




What do poetry, dance and video have in common? They’re just a few of the media that merge in “MAH: Moving Around Heidegger,” an interdisciplinary art project created by University of Alabama faculty and produced with the help of UA students. The project, which represents a year-long discussion in collaboration between visual artist and New College faculty, Dr. Janeann Dill, and Dr. Hank Lazer, poet and UA Associate Provost, was selected by German Curator, Judith Nothnagel, to be part of the international exhibition “Globalscreen 2008-2010: Simulations.” The exhibition opened in at the Schloss Ringenberg Institute in Hamminkeln-Ringenberg, Germany, and will tour Europe throughout 2009-2010.
