Shapeshifters Cinema and Brewery fundraising campaign ends tonight at midnight! Thank you for your extraordinary support! We have raised $16,973 so far, over 50% of our goal. But we’re not quite there yet. If you haven’t contributed yet, this is your last chance. There are only a few hours left to contribute to Shapeshifters Cinema and Brewery to help us raise the funds we need to start construction of our taproom and brewery. The campaign ends at midnight! There is still a lot of amazing art available, all contributed by Shapeshifters alumni. Some of the more rare and ephemeral, which you will find nowhere else: • Animation workshop: a 3-hour stop motion workshop led by experimental animator and educator Lydia Greer. Includes pints of a special batch of Shapeshifters brew. • Material Cinema Happy Hour: Filmmaker Ellie Vanderlip will lead a 3-hour workshop involving drawing, painting, scratching and manipulating 16mm film. Includes pints of a special batch of Shapeshifters brew. • Postcard Poems by Anne McGuire: Artist Anne McGuire will create and send you an original postcard poem, a real work of art, that she made just for YOU and you alone. • XL Blinding Light!! T-shirt: Blinding Light!! Cinema was owned and operated by filmmaker Alex Mackenzie in Vancouver Canada from 1998-2003. • Glenn McKay Polaroid: A one-of-a-kind, hand altered Polaroid instant photograph by the late, pioneering Bay Area light show artist, Glenn McKay. • And so much more to choose from!!! To close out our campaign, co-directors Gilbert Guerrero and Kathleen Quillian will be live on air this evening from 5:30-6:30pm on Film Close-Ups, talking with Gregory Scharpen about the past, present and future of Shapeshifters. Tune in to 90.7FM @kalxradio or listen online at http://kalx.berkeley.edu //// [ Artist Jeremy Rourke created this beautiful animation of our theater seats! ] #experimental #art #cinema #workshops #KALX
2020 is the year of Craig Baldwin! The forthcoming issue of INCITE Journal of Experimental Media is devoted exclusively to Craig and his life’s work in experimental film. And we have just the thing to commemorate the man, the myth, the legend: a Craig Baldwin Brick o’ Bricolage, which includes 3 of his films on DVD (all signed by the artist), an OC sticker, a strip of film from his film archive and a hand-written note just for YOU. Two more of these left if you donate to our IGG fundraiser before midnight tomorrow! Find the link in our bio or here https://igg.me/at/shapeshifters/x/136851#/
