San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2013
To celebrate the closing of the art exhibition “Between Frames: The Magic Behind Stop Motion Animation,” The Walt Disney Family Museum will host a lineup of events featuring the creators of Robot Chicken and the founders of Stoopid Buddy Stoodios. Join the team comprised of Seth Green (creator), Matthew Senreich (creator), John Harvatine IV (owner), Eric Towner (owner), and Alex Kamer (animation supervisor) for an after hours party, programs, and a workshop, exclusive to The Walt Disney Family Museum during the last weekend of April.
The after hours party, “Animate Your Night: The Island of Misfit Toys,” will be held on April 26 from 7-10 pm throughout The Walt Disney Family Museum. It will be a night full of misfit adventures as the creators of Robot Chicken and the founders of Stoopid Buddy Stoodios present behind-the-scenes footage and episode clips, followed by a Q&A. Enjoy eats from Adam’s Grub Truck and Me So Hungry, then have a hair-raising sip of their signature cocktail, The Evil Doctor.
The fun continues with two events on Saturday, April 27. The crew from Stoopid Buddy Stoodios will hold a panel discussion for a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the modern cult favorite, “Robot Chicken.” The panel discussion, “The Making of Robot Chicken,” starts at 2pm inside the Theater in The Walt Disney Family Museum. For those interested in stop motion animation, Robot Chicken animation supervisor, Alex Kamer, will lead the workshop, “Learn from the Masters: Animation Mischief with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios” in the Art Studio from 10am-1pm. This animation class and workshop will explore the magic of stop motion animation with the Emmy and Annie Award-winning animators of Robot Chicken.
