Filmmaker Spotlight: PERSISTENCE OF VISION director Kevin Schreck

By Jessica Tomberlin


Join director Kevin Schreck for a screening of his beautiful documentary, Persistence of Vision, followed by a Q&A with Schreck! 


Persistence of Vision is a classic story of an artist whose dream to create a masterpiece in animation became an obsession spanning three decades  that ultimately ended in dispair. Interview footage and gorgeous animation accompanied with Schreck’s hypnotizing storytelling captivates the audience from start to finish, as he slowly reveals this incredible story.  

A few weeks into college, a friend sent Schreck a link to a video the friend described as a “lost masterpiece of animation,” which a fan had put together to resemble the film that animator Richard Williams was trying to make. 

Williams is perhaps best known for his work on Who Framed Roger Rabbit, for which he won two Academy Awards. Schreck was blown away by the visual aspects of the film, as well as backstory of Williams, who worked on the film for three decades and yet was never able to see it come to fruition.
