Nearly 15 years in the making, Chris Sullivan’s Consuming Spirits is a meticulously constructed tour de force of experimental animation. Shooting frame by frame in 16mm, Sullivan seamlessly blends together a range of techniques – cutout animation, pencil drawing, collage, and stop-motion animation – into a distinct, signature visual style. In the process, he constructs a hypnotic, layered narrative, a suspenseful gothic tale that tracks the intertwined lives of three kindred spirits working at a local newspaper in a Midwestern rust belt town.
He is an animator, filmmaker and performance artist whose experimental film and theater work spans 30 years. His work has been shown in festivals, theaters and museums worldwide. Ηe received Guggenheim and Rock- efeller Media Arts Fellowships for Consuming Spirits.
