SKY ROOM TALK with Film Historian Rick Scileppi

"UNCLE MAX" THE FLEISCHER STUDIO STORY

Monday, July 24 at 7:30 pm | Members $11 | Public $16

Before computer animation there were pioneer animators who created thousands of hand-drawn images to create a moving cartoon.

Film historian Richard Scileppi will tell the story of the Fleischer Studio and its founder known to all as “Uncle Max,” the creator of Betty Boop and the man responsible for bringing Popeye and Superman to the big screen. This discussion will highlight the innovative contributions as well as the pitfalls that led to its demise. Richard has spent his life working in film distribution and the preservation of lost and orphan films. The program will feature rare video clips and photos and the classic cartoons. The program is two hours.
