Despite popular perception, there are many prominent African Americans in the world of animation. This Exchange will unpack the legacy of African American animators and reveal a distinctive, personal art form that they often bring to their craft when working with filmmakers, particularly through the work of Lyndon Joseph Barrois.
A New Orleans native, Barrois has a large number of high-visibility digital animation credits to his name. A few of the titles from his numerous television and film works include: The Matrix (2003), I, Robot (2004), and The Thing (2011). During this Exchange, Barrois will present some of his distinguishing stop motion animations, and moderator Ralph K. Scott will unpack the legacy of African American animators, as well as Barrios’ role as a leader in the field and the distinct style he brings to his work.
Presenters: Lyndon Joseph Barrois and Ralph K. Scott
