Experimental animated short film
Competion Date: January 2018
Glimpse into the mind of one indecisive artist.
Exhibited as an old high-tech animated installation at the MOTMOT gallery
I experimented with movement, geometrical shapes and textures and animated several tests:
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 bigger composition. By the end of the production phase there were more than 50 different loops. in order to differ between one to the other I used various names like wolf, de beat, the flying tampon and more. Can you guess what is what?
Once there were enough loops to work with, it was time to add sound. I felt that the use of traditional and eclectic instruments will compliment the animation and design style. With the help of the very talented musician/mad scientist Berry de Jong we recorded samples of 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:
