David Ehrlich is an independent animator teaching in the Film and Television Studies Department at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. Whether teaching animation workshops to children in Havana and Karachi or by headlining the First Animated Hologram Symposium in Zagreb, Yugoslavia, he is peerless in his field. In the last twenty years, he has made primarily independent abstract, animated films, garnering praise and recognition from all corners of the international film world.This bilingual text is divided into four parts: a short, amusing biography of Ehrlich; a deep analysis of his filmography and style; a dialogue between Ehrlich and the author; and anecdotes and commentary from other directors and animators throughout the world. Accompanying the text are sixteen full-color pages and numerous black and white illustrations. These images are culled from Ehrlich's award-winning animation and from his personal collection of family photographs.
