From 2009-2014 Alan S. Tofighi Studied Experimental animation at College of the Canyons where he developed his own style of paint on glass techniques and light animation as well as hand drawn techniques and stop-motion. This period of work culminated in a mysticism parody film Six Visions (For Occult Self Amputaiton) and two other short films Dairy Scream (2009) and Rats In Paradise (2010). the works are interested in the limits of animation, moving image, and the various histories of moving image, pre cinema and trance inducing histories tied to these then early new media.
