Six drawings, colored pencil on newsprint, 30”x50”, 2007
Film: 16mm, b/w, silent, 2:25, 2007
The drawings are made in the process of animating the short, hand-drawn animated film, Box Office (2007). The film begins with a quote by current U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan C. Crocker. In July, 2007, the New York Times quoted Crocker as comparing the current war in Iraq to a three or five-reel movie, depending on where one is living. In contrast to this quote, a list of the top-ten grossing films at the U.S. box office from the same day presents itself onscreen, along with other animated panels of related drawings.
