An Evening with Don Hertzfelt- Second Show added this Saturday!!!

Great news for the late comers! An Evening with Don Hertzfelt at the Alamo South Lamar just became one long night- another show's been added!

Cult animator and Academy Award nominee Don Hertzfeldt (THE MEANING OF LIFE, REJECTED, BILLY'S BALLOON) joins us at the Alamo for a rare one-night-only event: A selection of Don's classic animated shorts return to the big screen, culminating in the exclusive regional premiere of his newest film, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU. His longest piece to date, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU is the eagerly anticipated second chapter to EVERYTHING WILL BE OK, Winner of the Sundance Film Festival's Jury Award in Short Filmmaking and named by many critics as one of the "best films of 2007". The screening will be immediately followed by a live on-stage interview and audience chat with Don Hertzfeldt.

Like all of Hertzfeldt's films, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU was single-handedly animated and photographed by hand without the use of computers. It was shot entirely on an antique 35mm animation stand, one of the last remaining cameras of its kind left in America. The film's special effects were meticulously created directly on film, using traditional double exposures, in-camera mattes, and innovative experimental techniques. The 22 minute film was nearly two years in the making.

And you've only got one night to check it out.
