John Frame: Three Fragments of a Lost Tale

This animated/live film is a part of an ongoing project entitled, “The Tale of The Crippled Boy.” There are currently thirty five articulated characters along with several sets and a theatrical stage. This six and a half minute film is part of the first segment of a complex and loosely narrated story of a lost culture where things have gone rather awry.

Along with all of the sculptural components, the film ran at the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California from March 12 through June 20, 2011. For more information about the project exhibition, visit:​huntingtonlibrary_02.aspx?id=8368
