Animated Review

  1. The story takes place in Lisbon at the time of the great maritime discoveries. Explorers, looking like pigs, arrive in the harbour after a long voyage across the oceans. Everywhere in the city small groups gather and congratulate each other. Couples meet again after a long separation and hug one another. They organize spontaneous round dances and celebrate their return. Meanwhile, a young pig has the strange feeling of being completely isolated from the others in his own native city...

  2. Screened at SICAF on Media Canvas in South Korea in July 2014

    "Colorimetry" is a book at the crossroads between graphic design and visual arts. It's a catalog of shapes generated using the database of colorimetry and simple rules. You can buy the book on the website of the publisher, "La chose imprimée":

    "Colorimetry in motion" shows translations between those amalgams of shapes. Éric-Renaud Houde designed an app capable of animating the shapes and modify some of their parameters. By recording the generated animations, it was possible to produce a choreography that accompanies the book. The film was designed to loop in a gallery space. You can find the code for the app here:

    «Colorimétrie» est un livre à la croisée entre design graphique et arts visuels. En partant des systèmes colorimétriques, les données sont détournées de leurs fonctions pour traduire formellement les couleurs grâce à des règles simples. En sélectionnant aléatoirement plusieurs couleurs, ces règles génèrent des amalgames de formes superposés. Vous pouvez vous procurer le livre sur le site de «La chose imprimée»:

    «Colorimétrie en mouvement» effectue des translations entre les amalgames de formes superposées. Éric-Renaud Houde a conçu une application qui permet d'animer les formes et de modifier certains de leurs paramètres. En enregistrant les animations générées, il a été possible de produire une chorégraphie qui accompagne le livre. Le film est conçu pour jouer en boucle dans une galerie. L'application à code ouvert est disponible ici:

  4. "In 1903, Olivia Wright was the first to pilot the great grasshoppers of North America."

    While taking my kids to the playground, I shot live-action footage of a grasshopper, using my iPhone.
    This is one of many short animated clips I've made for fun. I might continue this particular clip as an Insect Aviation series... who knows :)
    It was my first project using TV Paint animation software. (No rotoscoping used. Where's the fun in that?!) My work-in-progress can be found on my blog:

  5. Directed by Mauricio Baiocchi
    Narrated by Stephen Fry
    Music by Jesse Solomon Clark

    "Cicada is a gift for one person and the world at the same time. I had thought that a gesture of kindness and love if made just right would resonate itself into many more such acts." -Mauricio Baiocchi, director

    Check out this Behind The Scenes of the scoring sessions:

    While Cicada Princess was still in production, I started composing some themes based on the story. I visited the set a few times, so I had an idea about the look of film. I probably had a feature film's worth of music for this short. Once there was a locked edit it became clear that, although the story is kind of epic and operatic in scale, the score needed to provide a thread to tie together the quickly-moving story together.
