Bray Productions was the dominant animation studio based in the United States in the years before World War I. The studio was founded in December 1914 by J. R. Bray, perhaps the first studio entirely devoted to series animation at that time.
Come out for a night of very rare animated silent films from the early pioneers of cel animation. A cartoon cavalcade from archivists Tom Stathes of the Bray Animation Project and Steve Stanchfield of Thunderbean Animation.
This very special and never before seen program will include the likes of:
- Bobby Bumps (1916–1922): directed by Earl Hurd
- Farmer Al Falfa (1916–1917): directed by Paul Terry
- Out of the Inkwell (1916, 1918–1919): directed by Max Fleischer and Dave Fleischer
- Goodrich Dirt (1917–1919): directed by Wallace A. Carlson
- Jerry on the Job (1919–1920): directed by Gregory La Cava, Vernon Stallings
- Happy Hooligan (1920–1921): directed by Gregory La Cava, Bill Nolan
- Judge Rummy (1920–21): directed by Gregory La Cava

Along with the work of Raoul Barré, Pat Sullivan, and Emile Cohl. Including incredibly rare stop-motion animated cartoons done by the Kinex Studios in 1929 for Kodak Cinegraph.
