Adventures in Outer Space

Adventures in Outer Space is a stop motion animated film where astronauts search for material to repair their solar panel. It is a fantastical example of Afrofuturism and was created by the students of the Lower East Side Girls Club: Maya Smith, Janell Crosby, Allison Nunez, Sophia Gutierrez, Ashley Monterosa and Shanice Negron with instructional support by Beck Underwood and Kelly Adams.

Plague

What have you been making during these last few weeks? Filmmaker Juliette Yu-ming Lizeray created this stop-motion animation without leaving her apartment—exploring dreams, nightmares, and creative ways to pass the time while sheltering in place. At the end of the video, she turns her mic to the street, recording the sounds below from her window. Can you hear her neighbors clapping and singing along to Frank Sinatra's classic jam "New York, New York"?

Selkie

Selkies are mythical creatures that can live as either humans or seals, depending upon whether or not they wear their magical skin.

Eve Liberman created this stop motion animated short by transforming her room into a mini movie set during her senior year of high school. She premiered her work at the Museum of the Moving Image's 2018 Teen Film Festival, winning the Moving Image Young Digital Filmmaker Award, and went on to teach media classes at the museum for middle school students.
