Just found out that my short animation Mind Games is screening in a Frankenstein themed film event at Bournemouth Arts, this Saturday (20.10.12.)
In the empty and derelict manor, Mary reads from her novel, Frankenstein, to a hushed audience. A band of steam-punk musicians strike up to accompany her spine-chilling tale. Behind the young writer and her band, images start to flicker to life: an artist’s anatomical drawings of the tale; then, catapulting the audience centuries into the future, marvelous scenes depicting the age of the cyborg, the artificially intelligent, rebellious descendent of Victor Frankenstein’s monster.’
Mind Games is screening in Making Tracks on Thursday the 18th of October at the Rich Mix Cinema. The film we accompanied by a brand new, one off, live score created by musicians on stage. Last time we went to this event it was great fun, so I am really looking forward to it! Here’s a promo video of their previous events.. plus a link to the whirlygig website.
The Yard Theatre, Queen’s Yard, Hackney Wick, London, E9 5EN
Sun 16th Sept, 7.30pm. Tickets £9
My short film MInd Games will screen as part of A Voyage Through Animation which celebrates historical and contemporary innovation in animation, matching films by recent artists with seminal work from the last 90 years including Man Ray’s Dadaist experiments, Lotte Reiniger’s silhouette animation, Russian collage by Ivan Ivanov and master of stop-frame Jan Svankmajer. All films receive a live score by live cinema pioneers The Cabinet of Living Cinema, who will outline the innovations in animation that have shaped the artform.
The evening will also incorporate live animation by audiovisual artist Noriko Okaku and a selection of animated short films programmed by Whirlygig Cinema to showcase emerging talent in the genre.This event is part of the Scala Beyond season.
More rough thumbnails for Mind Games, based on some Live action. These were for the man as he went from his head and into the out of body/dream sequence.
Mind Games rough thumbnails from an early scene. I shot some live action tests to reference for all the realistic character scenes.
