Holiday Way

Lauren Kelley

Holiday Way is a stop-motion animated video series based on short, fictional narratives that are set either in or around the Valentine’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. The eight distinct narratives, each under 30 minutes in length, are set to air on a community access television station. The series will run regularly over the course of sixteen weeks, including one-time reruns. An abbreviated version of this series will also be available for view through a museum Internet platform. 

Holiday Way will incorporate the script writing talents of screenwriter Erika Kelley and artist Martine Syms. Martine’s work examines assumptions of contemporary America, particularly the way that identity and memory are transformed by the shifting boundaries of business and culture. Erika’s projects have been viewed on YouTube, HGTV and in conjunction with Baltimore Magazine.
