            MAD GOD is an experimental animated film set in a Miltonesque world of monsters, mad scientists, and war pigs. Directed by legendary visual effects and stop-motion craftsman Phil Tippett, the sets, creatures, effects and spirit are, in every way, independent and created from the heart. Sometimes that heart is bursting with love for the craft - other times it's macabre, punctured, and bleeding. MAD GOD is a mature film crafted from techniques & technologies that span the history of cinema. More than 20 years in the making, Phil Tippett’s MAD GOD is truly a labor of the heart and homage to the craft of stop-motion animation. www.madgodmovie.com

              AN EVENING WITH PHIL TIPPETT MAY 4th - 8PM ONE NIGHT ONLY Over the course of the last 3 short years, Spectacle has played host to a great number of extremely exciting, important, and often rare events that leave everyone high-fiving and sometimes shaking their heads in utter disbelief. On May 4th of this year we welcome a man who has undoubtedly shaped the vision of animation, special effects, and filmmaking itself for cinephiles the world over. Phil Tippett will grace our humble theater for a night of shorts, stories, and presentations from his career. As a young boy Tippett was taken with the effects work of Ray Harryhausen and THE SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD and over the course of the next 4 decades turned that passion into a jaw-dropping resume. Pioneering stop-motion/go-motion effects techniques on films like the original STAR WARS trilogy, ROBOCOP, DRAGONHEART, JURASSIC PARK, STARSHIP TROOPERS, THE HAUNTING, and more. While earning enough Academy Awards to stock a bandoleer, Tippett also found time to helm his own studio and to take a seat in the director's chair for STARSHIP TROOPERS 2 and countless short films, including the classic PREHISTORIC BEAST. This barely scratches the surface of the illustrious career of this legendary wizard. Currently, Tippett resides in California and is working on a project called MAD GOD. He'll be presenting some of that along with a personal history of stop motion animation. Song: "End Game" by Uncanny Valley
