On Saturday, Sept. 7 at 3:30 p.m. there will be a director’s spotlight at Miners Foundry Stone Hall, 325 Spring St. in Nevada City, featuring Galen Pehrson.
Pehrson is a film, commercial and music video director and animator noted for his creative visual approach and manipulation of hallucinatory illusions.
He has directed and/or animated videos for Death Grips and Talib Kweli ft. Miguel.
He has designed album covers for Vetiver, Adam Green, Turner Cody, Hella and Devendra Banhart.
His latest animated short was featured in the Museum of Contemporary Art’s REBEL exhibition curated by James Franco.
Pehrson’s El Gato is a collection of hand-drawn, animated vignettes, blooming from the erotic and dark undertones in Ray’s “Rebel Without a Cause” and voiced by James Franco, Jena Malone and Devendra Banhart.
Pehrson will share a collection of his works and answer questions afterwards.
