Eyeworks Festival explores experimental animation. (Amy Lockhart)

Everybody likes animation, whether it's classic Chuck Jones or Pixar or something from Adult Swim. But animation on the experimental, even avant garde side is the focus at Eyeworks.

The first ever Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation takes place Saturday at the DePaul CDM Theater located on S. State St. in Chicago. The theater is in the building’s basement, and the first program begins at 1 p.m. sharp.

This one day event features films with a whole array of animation styles - stop-motion, paper cutouts, computer generated 3D. Alexander Stewart is a co-founder of the fest, and he explained what's ahead at the fest.
