This is the magic green file box wherein all the frames of the film are organized. In these final few weeks of production, I’ll be joined by the amazing Britta Johnson with editing and Robb Kunz on sound!
Haven’t tested it yet but I think this frame is gonna work to show David’s exuberance zooming toward a sugary rock confection
All the details of a NW beach are here, I’ve grown kind of attached to that little sand piper, though I don’t think they actually perch on rocks like this? Edible Rocks might need a warning to naturalists that it’s a purely remembered ecology!
☄Both Worlds at Short Run☄
Both Worlds will perform at Short Run, this time accompanied by a beautiful new Both Worlds comic book! Plus flipbooks, and films by SEAT!
5+ minutes of Stefan’s dancing animations are in Lead Bunny:
a modern dance performance by the choreographer Paige Barnes.
Oct 11-14 at 9:30pm
at Hedreen Gallery, Seattle
3 techniques were used in the making of this animation: Hand drawn paper, Flat computer animation and Gruber’s new Evaporation technique. Sound is by the amazing Rosten Woo.
Gruber was treated as a dancer for this piece and worked very closely with the choreographer to build animation that emanates the metaphysical states of the dancers. His fellow dancers in this ensemble come from many disciplines and have breathtaking chemistry.
Tickets are $8, or free for students.
