Artist and Friend
Experimental animated short film
Competion Date: January 2018
Glimpse into the mind of one indecisive artist.
Exhibited as an old high-tech animated installation.
(Motmot gallery, Breda, NL).
Animation tests with geometrical shapes and textures:
After the tone of the film was set, the next step was to animate unique shape loops with an aim to join them and create a complex composition. By the end of the production phase there were more than 50 different loops.
For the sound of the loops a group of traditional and eclectic instruments were recorded together with the musician Berry de Jong. The various instruments included Kalimba, Rubab, Digeridoo and more.
The earlier phases were very intuitive. The next step was to compose everything into what will be a 2 minutes short film with a beginning, middle and an end. A few screenshots from the film:
