Eric Patrick tours with Southern Circuit - Sept. 4-13

Experimental director and animator Eric Patrick will be showing a collection of short films that spans a decade of his highly acclaimed work on the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers from September 4 - 13, 2007. The collection entitled Ritual Etchings: The Experimental Shorts of Eric Patrick represents not only ten years of Patrick’s work, but also a sort of general method that he uses in his work. “The films are a cohesive collection of a certain approach to filmmaking for me,” he says. “I was interested in finding innovative techniques to illustrate the concepts that I was dealing with.”

Listen to an audio interview with filmmaker Eric Patrick about his work with experimental film, the ritual of animation, and the challenges of finding audiences for short films.
