01. BANQUET OF LOVE / Renai no Daikyoen, 7’

Japan 2014

Directed by Haruka Mitani, Michael Lyons

Screenplay: Haruka Mitani, Michael Lyons

Technique: Scratching and painting directly on overexposed 8mm film

Music: Haruka Mitani, Michael Lyons

Dialogues: None

 

Haruka Mitani and Michael Lyons to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Norman McLaren’s birth created this work. Insects in their final moments chatter noisily, displaying extravagant colors and patterns. It is their great feast of love. And they speak even by means of light! What should they regret, when they could die the next day? That is why you must shine, O luxurious Life! Shine, O gold, emeralds, sapphires and rubies! There circulates the vital essence that gives colour and energy to the humble place of these humble creatures, flapping their wings in a last-ditch effort. This work was made by scratching and painting directly on overexposed 8mm film. Powder and transparent lacquer were also applied, then more layers of paint. This lends a quality of depth to the diverse colours.

The soundtrack was created optically using an original system, developed for this project, which we call 'The Octopus' (see: http://vimeo.com/79488015).

Light sensors on the projection screen respond to the changing patterns in the film to control an analogue synthesizer. The film itself acts as a visual score.

 

 

 

02. FLIPPING, 8’

USA 2014

Directed by Jin Kyu Ahn

Screenplay: Jin Kyu Ahn

Photography: Jin Kyu Ahn

Technique: Hand-drawn animation

Editing: Jin Kyu Ahn

Music: Sun Min Hwang, Jin Kyu Ahn

Dialogue: None

 

FLIPPING is an automatic animation (action animating) created by applying 'flipping', a traditional hand-drawn animation technique. The spectrum of a soundless collision between cuts created by a collision of two different physical properties again collide with the sound made by playing two improvised scores folded after burnt. This work has a structure with the complex relationship that two planes are oppositely located in the light and dark space, two materials exist between the two planes, and two sounds permeate between the two materials. And it stays between the life (time) and sensibility of the artist himself.
