For November, we're serving up an evening of local short animation films by James Duesing and Rachel Wagner

This month, 


An evening of abstract digital animated films from local artists Rachel Wagner and James Duesing.

James Duesing

James Duesing has worked in many forms of animation, from traditional hand drawn and early digital work to 3D and motion capture projects. 
Duesing’s work brings images of dark fantasy worlds and strange human animal hybrid characters together in a comical and eccentric animation that also explores serious social issues.

Rachel Wagner

Rachel Wagner is a media artist from Pittsburgh currently based in Ohio. She works as a freelance videographer and video editor. 

Wagner's films show a number of beautiful 3D computer animations exploring environments made from a rich tapestry of colors, patters, and sound.

Immediately following the screening, our hosts

Matthew R. Day of Film Kitchen and Steven Haines of Jump Cut

will lead a Q&A via Zoom after the show!


Film Kitchen and Jump Cut Theater

Donations to the artists are encouraged.

The next Film Kitchen is Tuesday, December 8, 2020.
