ClayDream

Known as the "Father of Claymation," Will Vinton revolutionized the animation business during the 1980s and 90s, creating such iconic characters as the California Raisins and Domino's The Noid. But after 30 years of being the unheralded king of clay, Vinton's carefully sculpted American dream came crumbling down. Claydream charts the rise and fall of the Oscar- and Emmy-winning Will Vinton Studios, structured around interviews with the charismatic pioneer and his close collaborators—along with footage from the devastating lawsuit that squashed Vinton’s dreams of becoming stop-motion’s answer to Walt Disney. Filmmaker Marq Evans brings to life the battle between art and commerce in this David-and-Goliath tale of unbridled creativity and corporate intrigue.

Tickets: $15 (Members from $10)
