Indie animation mainstay since “My First Crush,” (2007), her plaintive ode to infatuation, Julia Potts has in the last seven years only grown as an artist. Her most recent offering, “The Event,”  places her wry melancholy and signature animal-like creatures into landscapes that merge live-action images of Montauk and hand-drawn animation.  The digitalized special effects that normally manufacture cheap grandiosity here works to provoke terror and wonder.  The bright burst of the meteor is dazzling–to the 2-D protagonists a thing literally from another dimension.
