#52FilmsByWomen: SPEED DATING



Happy Friday! This week’s film is a bizarrely funny & beautiful animation/live action short directed by Meghann Artes.

Artes is an Emmy and Peabody award-winner for her work on Sesame Street and who has also worked with Dreamworks, Nickelodeon, Bix Pix, Nick Jr., NBC and ABC. She studied animation at UCLA and now teaches at DePaul University in Chicago. This film was produced by DePaul’s Project Bluelight production company. I’ve seen some of their shorts before and they’re often quite good.

While I’ve never gone speed dating, I’ve certainly experienced enough cringe-worthy dates to find this film entirely relatable and funny. Artes takes an awkward situation to its extreme; her characters are unique and wonderful and the artistry with which she combines human performances and animation is truly stunning.

Enjoy a light ending to your week and watch the film here: https://vimeo.com/145154247
