Race Gods Race - a short stop motion film by Larry Loc
|Festival Screening Race Gods Race|
(All Double and Triple Meanings Meant)

This animation grew out of my Wednesday night Stop Mo Video Chat Workshop. There is kind of a very loose Aardman Lip Sync vibe
to the piece. But without any real lip sync. I am juxtapositioning the audio from old, world news reports of global conflict with stop motion conflict between
national and racial mythic entities; witches, gods and demons. I am trying to get at the underlying super reality that subdivisions of humanity
learn/create as part of their racial/national myth. And I am playing with the idea that these mythic constructs have a real effect
on how groups of peoples interact with and sometimes even kill one another.
That sounds very high brow but I am also having real fun animating witches and dragons and blood and flames and Anubis fighting a
skeleton ala Seventh Voyage of Sinbad. What more can you ask?
My last film was very genre in nature and aimed at a single festival that did accept it. But nobody else has seemed to want it.
This time I am aiming a little wider but still having fun. I like festivals and being on stage gives me a chance to talk about
Stop Motion, the red haired step child of animation education. (10 production videos attache to images above)
