Photos from the “Masks” Premiere in New York

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

The rough cut of “Masks” premiered in New York on the 18th of June, and we had a great turnout for the night.  Pat Smith showed all of his short films, from “Drink” (his first, and the first one I did the music for as well), “Delivery” (another PS / KvK collaboration), then onto “Handshake” and the darkly hilarious “Puppet”.  Then the piece-de-resistance – “Masks”!

It was well received by the 92Y Tribeca crowd.  We did a quick Q&A session, mingled with the animation fans (a pretty different world than the usual rock-show crowd), and headed out into the downtown New York summer night.    Good times…   In a couple of weeks Pat and I will make a few edits and tweaks , make a 35mm film print, and hit the film festival circuit in the Fall.

“Masks” Film Premiere Set – June 18

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

92Y Tribeca, Friday, June 18th, 8pmPresenting The Twisted Animation of Patrick Smith

‘Traditional Animation is far from dead.. it’s just resting in the dark imagination of Director Patrick Smith. Come see a collection of Smith’s recent short films, featuring the World Premiere of his latest animated film “Masks”, his darkest and most twisted short to date. “Masks” is based on the experimental audio talents of Karl von Kries, who has previously worked with Smith on his short films “Drink” and “Delivery”.  Also screening will be a behind the scenes mini-doc directed by filmmaker Liz Lyons.  Patrick Smith will be in attendance for a Q and A after the show.’

For anyone in the NY Metro Area, this is a great chance to see “Masks” for the first time, and to hang out for the Q&A afterwords (Karl will be joining the Q&A as well). (tickets, more info)
