Animating Great TV Commercials - The Olive Jar Panel at the Armory

Animators and Artists, we have a great one this month!
At risk of sounding like a listicle website…do you remember the 80s and 90s? When television was full of insane commercials and slightly-unsettling interstitials featuring squishy, oddball characters? We'll help you remember at this awesome event at the Armory! Between 1984 and 2001, Olive Jar Animation created stop-motion, cartoon, and mixed-media work for dozens of commercials and branding campaigns, including many you saw on MTV and Nickelodeon. This panel includes influential creators, Mark Frizzell, Bryan Papciak, Sarah Goodman, Gabriel Polonsky, and Miriam Tendler, telling us what it was like to be a part of that late-20th-century era of animation experimentation. This is an exclusive opportunity to relive some of Boston’s animation history that you won’t want to miss!

AniMAtic Boston also provides a great chance to meet other talented members of the Boston animation community, chat about what’s going on in the industry, what you’re inspired by, and anything else on your mind.

April 19th, Doors open at 7pm, Talk starts at 7:30pm

Event is open to all, with a suggested donation of $5. Beer and wine will be available, and there’s a cafe right downstairs if you want to grab a meal and bring it up.

Believe it or not, there’s parking too! A free parking lot located behind the Armory.
