Helen Hill (1970-2007) was a filmmaker and
activist raised in Columbia, South Carolina and settled in New Orleans,
Louisiana. She studied Experimental Animation at Harvard and California
Institute of the Arts. She taught film workshops wherever she went, and
compiled “Recipes For Disaster: A Film Cookbooklet.” Helen Championed
low-budget and do-it-yourself approaches to filmmaking, including super
8, hand-processing, and drawing on film, and insisted that “you don’t
need to keep up with the latest technology to make a good film, you
just need a good idea.”

Helen’s murder in January 2007 in New Orleans
cut short the life of an incredibly talented and original artist. Here
are ten of Helen’s films. They include cel animation, cut-out and 3-D
puppet animation, hand-processing, and live action filmmaking. Be
prepared to enjoy tea parties, a cotton candyland, romance activism, a
potbelly pig family tree, chicken angels, and much more.
