DIY Animation Club began in 2016 as a tiny meetup oscillating between the Heights and Montrose neighborhoods of Houston, TX, paired with an ongoing webzine collecting our findings. We made a couple micro shorts, a ton of GIFs, held a few screenings, published a zine which we tabled with at ZineFest Houston, co-sponsored a film festival, and taught various workshops around town. Though DIYAC’s founders have been scattered throughout the known universe, and our previous website was hacked and destroyed, we’re slowly rebuilding this thing, one article at a time.
