Nov. 21st – Floating World Animation Fest presents: DMTV2 at the Hollywood Theater

DMTV2 is a collection of experimental and psychedelic animation from around the world. The emphasis is on non-commercial, personal work. We seek pure vision. Some of the films push visual noise and glitch to the limit while others reach a peak of ambient degaussed bliss.

Highlights include David O’Reilly’s latest award winning film, The External World, and new films from James Mercer, Jacob Ciocci, Yoshi Sodeoka and Mirai Mizue. This year’s program includes animation by comics artists from around the world: Michael DeForge, Jesse McManus, King Terry and Amy Lockhart. We are also proud to collaborate with artists like Alexandra Gorczynski, Duncan Malashock, and local artist Brenna Murphy for the first time.

Opening act, Good Night Billygoat, is a live music trio that performs in front of a projected backdrop of gorgeous, handmade, stop motion animation. They will perform their two recent compositions, “Golden Age” and “Sophia” as well as the first 10 minutes of their new film “Lyric”.

Here are some videos that explain/show the process of their work.
