National Cine Eagle Award Winning Animation created by animator Philip Cook. Titled “The Seven Grandfathers,” this is one of fourteen animations on permanent display at the National Museum of the American Indian in the "Our Universes" wing.
“The Seven Grandfathers” has also won Gold Muse Award from The American Association of Museums. The judges said: "The artwork is bright, colorful, and beautiful, using Flash-style mostly-static cut-outs against fixed, painted backgrounds in a way that complements the work's story-book appeal. A breath of fresh air in terms of execution, the densely layered content is well-suited to repeat viewing and both underscores and provides an overview of exhibit themes and content. At a running time of about 5 minutes, the piece is wonderfully imagined, tightly edited, and perfectly tailored to a museum exhibit environment."
