Animated Genius: Films of Will Vinton
REDCAT International Children’s Film Festival

Not many filmmakers kick off their careers by winning an Academy Award. Even fewer go on to breathe life into characters that become icons of animation. Fewer still achieve stunning commercial success with inventions like the California Raisins and M&M’s “Red & Yellow.” World-renowned Claymation pioneer Will Vinton has done all that, and continues to break new ground under the banner of his new company Freewill Entertainment. Join us for this retrospective of early films by Vinton and see why this boundlessly energetic and creative animator from Portland went on to win virtually every film and television award in his field.
