Cleveland film-maker Thomas Ball created The Beauty of Damage for
This Work in Progress event is not only a celebration of Chris Pekoc's work, but an invitation to think more broadly about film as a compelling medium of communication. Film has evolved to become a more versatile and powerful tool of communication than ever before. Whereas, once films could only be screened in a theater or a classroom, now they can be displayed through television, DVD, and websites. Today, one person with a powerful computer can produce effects that a few years ago would have required hundreds of technicians and a large, well-equipped studio.
The screening of the 18-minute film is followed by an open discussion with Chris Pekoc; Bernie Sokolowski, who did the animation; and Henry Adams, who worked on the project with Tom Ball as co-producer and co-scriptwriter. They'll discuss the process of creating the film from its first inception through various stages of fundraising, script-writing, research, filming, crafting the sound track, and editing.
A reception follows the program.
