Brent Green is an American animator. Although he started out in cell animation, he really made his mark with innovative stop-motion animation to tell intensely personal stories. After making a handful of short films, he produced, wrote and directed the feature-length Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then, which was made using stop-motion animation techniques, but with live actors. The film was named Bad Lit: The Journal of Underground Film's Movie of the Year for 2010.
Green frequently screens his films with a live musical score and with live narration. Also, he has displayed the sets and props in his films as installation pieces in art galleries all over the country, as well as creating original installation artwork.
