And don’t miss Jugglers 2 in its first Sierra County showing!

Accompanying Casino Royale at the Yuba Theatre will be the first local screening of Jugglers 2, the second short animated film created by Downieville’s young filmmaker, Niven Wilson.

In 2008 Wilson had plenty of juggling gags left over when he finished his first film, Jugglers, accepted as the U.S. entry in the High School competition of the Ottawa International Animation Festival. In 2009 he took a quarter off from his university studies to compete Jugglers 2. In early 2010, the film had a “sneak” screening during an “Open Projector” night at the Armand Hammer Museum in Westwood, California. Based on audience reaction, Jugglers 2 was one of only six or seven films among over 30 that was allowed to run its full course. Ultimately it was awarded a third-place finish behind two live-action films.

Since he is not in a college film program, Wilson has taken a big jump from High School divisions to the open competition of film festivals, where a ratio of 20 to one, submissions to accepted films, is not unusual.

Jugglers 2 received its world premiere at the Melbourne International Animation Festival this last June. It will be shown in September, along with his first film, at the International Festival of Horror Animation in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Jugglers required over 2,000 animation drawings and Jugglers 2 required 3,000. Wilson has plans for yet another juggling film but has several other short films he wants to complete first. After the screening of Jugglers 2, Wilson will field questions from the audience.

  • Californians will once again have the opportunity to support the California Arts Council and its arts programs for children through their state individual tax refund. Sept. 2013, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed Senate Bill 571 (Senator Carol Liu, La Canada Flintridge), returning the arts to the voluntary contribution portion of California tax return forms through the new "Keep Arts in Schools Fund." Donations are tax deductible and support Arts Council programs throughout the state.
