Ken’s Cheesy Films

Before video cameras were common, people used to film with movie cameras, which used four-minute reels of 8mm or Super 8 film. I began in 1980 and until 2003 I made short animated films with plasticene, paper, or people. I was a straaange kid. Enjoy!

A film I made on paper when I was ten.

If you came here from my Concordia page, you may have seen some of these films at talent shows in the 80’s. I would like to enter these films in animation festivals someday, and I once entered Seoul’s SICAF festival.

In 2019 I completed re-digitizing the films and adding music and effects. I don’t shoot anymore, as the film is now scarce and expensive, but hopefully you will enjoy my selection of these films and their low-tech charm; I’ve tried not to make them look too finished.
