Mon 18th July: Julie Verhoeven's 'If you are happy and you know it'
The perfect antidote to an uninspiring grey and drizzly July morning is an injection of colour and humour from the inimitable Julie Verhoeven ........ from various sources .......... either her newly set up Blog or the exclusive film "If You Are Happy And You Know IT" made for Another Magazine Online. I contacted Julie to get her own selection of favourite stills from the stop frame animation which is jam packed with cosmic rainbow props, clouds on blue skys and photocopies on colour paper. You can read the background to the concept and her collaboration with Neil Emery over on AnOther and watch the complete film.
To hear Julie talk about her film inspirations, check out the TEST event in Bethnal Green on Thursday evening for a screening of ‘THE BITTER TEARS OF PETRA VON KANT’ hosted by the artist. Click here for details and tickets........
