Abstract:

Derek Lamb appeared on Screening Room in June 1973 with over a dozen films and film clips that demonstrated a wide range of animation techniques, including The Rocket, The Great Toy Robbery, I know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, Housemoving, and The Shepherd. In September 1975, Lamb returned to Screening Room to screen and discuss the films The Last Cartoon Man and The Psychic Parrot. This package contains two videos with the programs from 1973 and 1975 plus a special bonus feature: Derek Lamb visits Robert Gardner in 2005 (audio/slide show, 28 min). Over the course of a remarkable career spanning more than four decades, Derek Lamb contributed to over two hundred film and video productions as director, producer, animator, composer, and even as a singer. His film credits include the Academy Award-winning shorts Special Delivery and Every Child, as well as The Sweater, Why Me, The Great Toy Robbery, Karate Kids and The Shepherd. He is also known for animating the opening credits for the PBS series Mystery!. He taught animation at Harvard and McGill Universities and at the National Institute of Design in India. About the Screening Room series In the early 1970s a group of idealistic artists, lawyers, doctors and teachers saw an opportunity to change commercial television in Boston and the surrounding area. It would require years of litigation up to and including the Supreme Court, but the case was won and the Channel 5 license was given to WCVB-TV. Screening Room was one of several programs offered in an effort to provide alternative television viewing. The idea behind Screening Room was to give independent filmmakers an opportunity to discuss their work and show it to a large urban audience. Nearly 100 ninety-minute programs were produced and aired between 1973 and 1980. Screening Room was developed and hosted by filmmaker Robert Gardner, who at the time, was Director of Harvard's Visual Arts Center and Chairman of its Visual and Environmental Studies Department. His own films include Dead Birds (1964), and Forest of Bliss (1986).
