Still Life

My first attempt at Stop Motion, this film was part of my final Contemporary Arts Practices Course (I joined Fine Arts for half a year hoping to do Animation). This film was completely self initiated, and tried to question the role of the Animator in this film. Who is the Animator? What is he animating? Doesn’t he know that what he is trying to animate already has a life?!

The Soundtrack for the film has been specially created for the film by friend and music mentor Rudolf David (alias Rzhude). He used two musical treatments, one with a moody bass line to show the parts where I, the animator was in the scene, and the other, a funny percussion piece for the parts where my work space comes to life.
