Animated Frames: Short Films from the Studio of Noble600
August 30 – September 22, 2021
Montserrat Galleries presents a selection of animated short films and commercials from the Los-Angeles based creative and production studio, Noble600. The exhibition showcases the craft of animation through a wide range of techniques and styles used to tell diverse stories, from Alicja Jasina’s lyrical animated short, Once Upon a Line, to innovative animated commercials produced for Huawei and Gatorade. A highlight of the exhibition is the recent short film, Negative Space, created and produced by the Oscar nominated and Providence, Rhode Island-based collective Tiny Inventions (Ru Kuwahata and Max Porter). Based on a 150-word poem by Ron Koertge, Negative Space is a beautiful and heartfelt story about a father-son relationship through the art of packing a suitcase.
Noble 600 represents talented storytellers, directors, and animators. With deep roots in both live action and animation, Noble600 collaborate with agencies, artists, and brands to create content and tell stories than inform, transform, connect and entertain.
