Ren and Stimpy: A Day at the Museum and an Evening with the Artist

July 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie Mansion presents Ren and Stimpy in A Day at the Museum: production cels from the collection of series animator Frank Sasso.

Back in 1988, before Trenton resident Frank Sasso became an animator, he worked for a television broadcast equipment manufacturer in Paramus. “It was my job to demonstrate the equipment to potential buyers at trade shows,” says Sasso, “as well as product manage a system called ‘The videoDesigner’ a graphics editing platform which was way before Photoshop.” When the company decided to expand their services, a spot opened up to lead their art and animation department. Frank grabbed the position. Since then, he has been the chief remote penciller for Stimpy from the children’s television series, The Ren and Stimpy Show,was animation supervisor for 3 Cheetos commercials featuring Chestah Cheetah, and has trained Disney animators on animation techniques for such movies as The Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid.

Sasso is also an award-winning podcaster and is a contributing member of the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) in which he holds 3 “Member Excellence” commendations for his industry articles to the organization and is a long-standing member of the American Cinema Editors.
