MOOD CIRCUS to play at Queens World Film Festival 2021
Reflecting precarious inner states from ominous to lighthearted, Mood Circus (4:15 min) is an experimental composition made up of watercolor, gouache, and oil paintings created by the filmmaker during the pandemic. Creatures which flicker and zoom in layers and then dance as animations are presented in cycles representing both traumatic brokenness and hope. With a housemade soundtrack.

development. It was sometimes known, as it took form, as DADA DEATH. There are still a few fragments of the process present here. The completed animation---not a play, not an app, not a game---is 21:33 min. long.

A 1968 transplant to San Francisco from Cambridge, MA, Eddy Falconer designs and documents worlds and their characters in a variety of idioms. Starting out artistically in New York as a writer of sci-fi and a comics artist with some ephemeral publications and performance actions, Eddy moved to Berlin with a Hi-8 squatter documentary in hand on the cusp of German Reunification and stayed 6-7 years. While shooting epic length Super-8 movies and painting, Eddy invented multiple artistic personae including the characters Eduardo Falcone and, still emerging these many years later, Pia Ford. From 1992-95 there was study in theatrical set design at the then-HdK. In 1997 Eddy began work with George Coates at his theater in San Francisco, as Associate Director, collaborating to bring six productions to completion, including Wittgenstein on Mars; the popular cult staging of Valerie Solanas’ long-lost play, Up Your Ass; and the cable TV series Better Bad News. In 2007 Eddy’s live action video, Ibéria, grew out of a phase of digital retooling and involvement with spoken word and latter-day punk performance worlds. Beginning in 2011, a series of short animated and experimental pieces has screened in New York at the Queens World Film Festival, two of them garnering awards. Eddy was also an original, founding member of the mutual aid organization, The Icarus Project.
