For So Cold I wanted to return to some of the scrambled porn aesthetics we experimented with on In Decay for the band Phèdre. I wanted to make a simple dance video so that I could push the amount of distortion on the image, and still have it be readable. Video credits: Erin Moore (Make Up), Leilanni Todd (Styling), Charise Aragoza (Dancer Characters), Jesse Yules (Director / Animator). Watch the video here...
Perpetual Surrender is my second video experimenting with folded paintings. This time I used images with a strong, singular light source, that cast a shadow on one side of the figure (Carmen Elle from DIANA). I tried to illustrate the idea of a personality with different sides, by mirroring and animating the lit side of the portrait, then contrasting that by mirroring the shadow side of the portrait.
I think it’s interesting that a lot of movement and animation can be added to an image with simple folding and plan to do more of it in the future.
