WATCH: Late Night Work Club launch second anthology ‘Strangers’

// Featured, Independent Animation, News

Late Night Work Club, the ‘rotating collective’ originally set up by Pittsburgh-based animator/illustrator Scott Benson in 2012, has this morning launched their second anthology film Strangers, following on from 2013’s Ghost Stories. The films can be watched in their entirety below:

As with the previous collection, a number of independent and professional visual artists have come together to direct a short film each, with a shared theme to be interpreted however they see fit. The first anthology Ghost Stories featured short film contributions from ten independent directors including Sean Buckelew (The American Dream), Alex Grigg (Phantom Limb) and Caleb Wood (Rat Trap) who have all returned for this second anthology.
