On Sunday, February 12th, the Oregon Cartoon Institute is holding a public meeting at 5th Avenue Cinema. Starting at 2pm, the event’s centerpiece is a screening and discussion of the earliest Portland-made animation on record, The Little Baker, a stop-motion piece shot in the 1920s by Lewis Clark Cook. Cited as an inspiration by Will Vinton, this rarely-seen film gives a look into the early days of the medium. Included in the afternoon is Jim Blashfield’s ten-minute documentary profile of Cook.
