Butter Elbow Animation Festival

Butter Elbow Animation Festival (Chicago) 08/31/17
The first Butter Elbow Animation Festival (B.E.A.F.) was held in 2010 at the Op Shop 2 in Hyde Park on the south side of Chicago. The idea for B.E.A.F. was born after the production of an on-site, stop-motion animation by the Mobile Animation Station (M.A.S.), made up of 4 local Chicago animators: Vicky Yen, Wei-Lun Lin, Samantha Lotti, and Kiel Darling. While brainstorming in the space – a former Hollywood Video store – a member of the group started drawing on a newly painted chalk wall with their elbow. Within a couple of minutes all the group members had rolled up their sleeves and were holding their elbows up against the black wall, doodling. As Laura Shaeffer, the founder of the Op Shop drew a monkey on the wall, a photo was taken, and the picture became the poster for the first animation screening, and that was how the B.E.A.F. was born.
