FALLING UP, the beautiful stop-action short film made by Dayton native Djuna Wahlrab, is coming to THE NEON in downtown Dayton. This stunning film, with sets based on local architecture (and an opening live/animated scene shot in downtown Dayton), will play with select screenings of THE ILLUSIONIST (one of this year’s Academy Award nominated films for “Best Animated Film Feature”).
Wahlrab, a working filmmaker and graduate of Stivers School for the Arts, now resides in New York City. She will be opening a gallery exhibit of sets and puppets from her film later this month at Stivers….You’ll want to see her short film THEN see how she made it.
Stop-action animation is shot one frame at a time – a pain-staking process with gorgeous, magical results. To see more about her film and see the trailer, visit the official website at www.fallingupmovie.com.
FALLING UP will only play before THE ILLUSIONIST during the 3:00 and 7:30 screenings during the week of Friday, February 11 through Thursday, February 17.
