Just updated my animated film for final project 2013
Feel free to give comments and share :)
She will warm my hand in a cool dark street as I grab hers in my swather pocket.
A texture of her is the thing to remind you of living.
To touch her is to touch a present moment.
My friend is a rock yet she always go explore things with another her.
She received news from winds, sunlight, and people that walk pass by.
Sometime she will be a bird, or sometime fish.
But most of the time she will let me hold her,
and read her a ‘little prince’ story.
I’am currently studying Animation music video and Movie title as an inspiration to learn how Visual and Sound are professionally synchronize. Here’re the sources.
All the animations were created, drawn and coloured by the director David Wilson. I really like what he do! It’s my all time fevorite :)
Using both praxinoscopes and the technique of matching up the frame rate of the spinning record to that of the camera, no computer super-imposing was used; what you see is what rolled off the camera. The transitions between each section of animation was created by simply cutting or wiping between the bits of footage.
Living Cinema: Live Experimental Sound and Image Performance
By Bob Ostertag & Pierre Hébert
Saturday April 27, 7pm
At The Reading Room, Silom 19
The project brings the creation of cinema out of the movie and recording studios and on to the stage. Ostertag has created innovative software which allows the two artists to actually perform an animated movie with soundtrack, live of stage.
For decades, Pierre Hébert was considered one of the masters of the unusual craft of creating animated films by engraving directly on film. Living Cinema allows him to apply the craftsmanship acquired through years of engraving on film to whatever materials he wishes to use. Ostertag brings his years of experience with live manipulation of sampled sound to the project, using a variety of objects and techniques to create a soundtrack that is synchronized with the image as both are both being created. The flexible, open-ended character of Living Cinema gives the artists the ability to respond immediately to political and cultural events in a way that conventional cinema never could. The work is thus profoundly influenced by world events.
Living Cinema has performed at major museums of modern art in the US, Europe, and Japan, at Lincoln Center, and at many major international film festivals since 2000.
About the artists:
Bob Ostertag is a composer and writer who has been doing experimental music at major venues around the world since the late 1970s. Composer, performer, historian, instrument builder, journalist and activist, Ostertag’s work cannot be easily pigeonholed. He is widely hailed as one of the great exponents of spontaneous electronic composition of the last 30 years. He has performed at music, film, and multi-media festivals around the globe. His radically diverse collaborators include the Kronos Quartet, John Zorn, Mike Patton and Anthony Braxton. His writings on contemporary politics have also been published on every continent and in many languages. He is currently Professor of Technocultural Studies and Music at the University of California at Davis.
Pierre Hébert is a filmmaker and protégé of Norman McLaren. He has been a major figure in animation for many decades and the recipient of several lifetime achievement awards. He was first known for his abstract experimental films dealing with perception phenomena; later, his films became more socially and politically involved. He has also taken part in live performances with musicians and choreographers and his films evolve from multidisciplinary practices. Throughout his career, Hébert has experimented with hybrid cinematic forms as a way of expressing his anthropological and humanistic view of the world, exploring themes of urban alienation, social politics, the particularities of place and geography, the presence of forgotten histories in everyday life, and the impact of industry upon the environment.
Couldn’t believe that I met them today and really talked to Hebert! Even it’s a very short conversation due to a lot of people is also waiting to talk to him, he’s very very kind artist. I really wish that I could talk to both of them! The performance tonight was epic! Hebert talking about his life and he’s mention about Norman McLaren that I’ve already forgot about him so I searching about him again. And after that I research more about Bob Ostertag & Pierre Hébert, I recommend you, if you haven’t heard this name before or you’re interesting in animation, to spend sometime visit those links. You won’t be disappoint! :)
I’m currently studying with Aditya Assarat in Screenwriting class. Every Monday afternoon is like the day for inspiration. Today is also another inspiring day.
Wonderful town is the movie I always missed a chance to watch it in cinema. Now is my very luck day because I finally watch this movie in the director class!
Love the tone of movie – how romantic it is. Unconsciously, I merge into the film. It’s not only a love story but a story of a sad people and a town after disaster of Tsunami.
What we actually see is the town is physically REBORN, but it is still sad. People still crying inside their mind. How the sad town be cure and reborn again?
Before I study with him, I’ve watch a short film called ‘Bangkok blue’ long time ago. And another movie of him ‘Hiso’ is the first feature film from him I watched in cinema. I love them both too! here’s the VDO with commentary, sorry that it’s in Thai.
