The Studio@620 and Echo Bridge Pictures invite you the regional premier film screening of "Persistence of Vision", a documentary from Director Kevin Schreck. The film chronicles the struggle of animator Richard Williams ("Who Framed Roger Rabbit?") and his decades long attempt to finish his masterpiece, an animated epic titled "The Thief and the Cobbler". There will be a post-screening discussion with the director via Skype connection.
"It may not be unusual for an animated film to take a few years to finally come together, but The Thief and the Cobbler isn’t exactly a typical animated film, and Richard Williams isn’t a typical animator. His dedication to the art surpasses anyone else in the field, and his work is a stunning example of what an animator can accomplish. Unfortunately, nobody is really aware of just how amazing his work is, since his film, as he envisioned it, remains unseen. Director Kevin Schreck looks to change that with his documentary, Persistence of Vision." -- William Brownridge, Toronto Film Scene
