This is the 3rd of 4 very short films that I made for my CalArts MFA Thesis in graphic design. My thesis "4 Walks In Newhall: Exercises in Type & Film" explored how typography can add narrative complexity to a short film. I created 4 films based on the same story.
Film #3 "Collage" combines video, stop motion animation and still photos. I wanted to explore how fragmented imagery could combine with type to represent the character's many facets. I was also interested in playing with tactility and spatial relationships. (2008)
Music by The Delmore Brothers, Starring Jonah Olson.
