Time Farmers is a celebration of experimental and independent animation
Time Farmers started as a traveling program of short animated films made by independent contemporary animators from across North America and has since expanded to include a series of video portraits. I don’t know if I can call it a series just yet because only one has been produced so far, but I am very excited to make more of these mini-features. You can watch the first episode below. If you’d like to hear when the next episode is available, please follow @timefarmers on Instagram.
The first Time Farmers collection of films was organized to screen along-side my film ‘Lord I : The Records Keeper’. I traveled with this program to different corners of the US and Canada in an effort to bring unconventional animated art to a wide array of communities that may not otherwise have access to this type of work. Time Farmers screened in theaters, galleries, backyards, and anywhere that would make a good site to host motion picture gazers. The Time Farmers program includes a diverse array of narrative & non- narrative films produced through both hand-crafted and digital techniques. Below you will find more information on the films and filmmakers that are included in this program.
If you are interested in bringing Time Farmers to your town please let me know!
