Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Visit IndyBuzz's sister site, http://www.provocate.org/, which provides a context for the clusters of the events discussed in IndyBuzz.

Stop-Motion Animation Pioneers
Stop-motion animation is as old as film itself, and a key technique for special effects until computer animation arrived. View 10 rare early 20th-century “stop-mo” shorts made by three animators: Willis O’Brien, Ladislaus Starevitch and Charley Bowers. O’Brien is most famous for the stop-mo effects in King Kong (1933); see his stop-mo dinosaurs in this program.

Starevitch’s painstaking Frogland is an Aesop’s fable featuring frogs searching for a king. Bowers started as a newspaper cartoonist; his “It’s a Bird” (1930) was later touted as a surrealist treasure. Films introduced by film historian Eric Grayson.
