Summary
Independent animator George Griffin has dedicated himself to the pursuit of animation as an art form. Originally from Tennessee, he became a pivotal figure of New York's experimental film scene in the 1970s with his self-reflexive, irreverent and personal films that challenge traditional notions and methods of animation. He has taught at institutions including the Parsons School of Design, Pratt Institute, and Harvard University, and his films have screened in museums and festivlas around the world. More information and his collected films, Griffiti, are available at www.geogrif.com. In October 1976, George Griffin appeared on Screening Room to show and discuss his animation work including the films Rapid Transit, Candy Machine, Trik Film #1, Trik Film #3 and Head, as well as some works that were in progress at the time. About the Screening Room series In the early 1970s a group of idealistic artists, lawyers, doctors and teachers saw an opportunity to change commercial television in Boston and the surrounding area. It would require years of litigation up to and including the Supreme Court, but the case was won and the Channel 5 license was given to WCVB-TV. Screening Room was one of several programs offered in an effort to provide alternative television viewing. The idea behind Screening Room was to give independent filmmakers an opportunity to discuss their work and show it to a large urban audience. Nearly 100 ninety-minute programs were produced and aired between 1973 and 1980. Screening Room was developed and hosted by filmmaker Robert Gardner, who at the time, was Director of Harvard's Visual Arts Center and Chairman of its Visual and Environmental Studies Department. His own films include Dead Birds (1964), and Forest of Bliss (1986).
