Late Night Work Club tease second anthology film ‘Strangers’!

// Featured, Independent Animation, News


Late Night Work Club, the ‘rotating collective’ set up by Pittsburgh-based animator/illustrator Scott Benson in 2012, last night announced the theme of their second anthology film Strangers, following on from the 2013’s Ghost Stories.

As with the previous collection, a number of independent and professional visual artists will come together to direct a short film each, with a shared theme to be interpreted however they see fit. The successful and immensely entertaining Ghost Stories boasted such talents as Alex Grigg (Phantom Limb), Conor Finnegan (Asshole) Eamonn O’Neill (Post Personal) and Benson himself (Last Lives) among others. Strangers will feature all of the above with some new additions including Kirsten Lepore, Jeanette Bonds, and Nicolas Menard to name a few!

With the spirit, intent and execution of the original Ghost Stories innumerably cited amongst the independent animation community as one of the most inspirational ventures of its kind, anticipation for Strangers is certainly high. In the meantime the entire anthology feature is viewable online:

@themooks @skwigly I know it's kind of obvious, but I used to see it as 'important but secondary'. I don't see it as secondary any more.
