Experimental Animation based on Urban Exploring in Paris. The Idea was to explore and to feel inspired by the Urban Landscapes, the Street Art, the People and the Museums of Paris.
Based on that my main focus was laid on Faces (but also athmospheres) that are rather on the darker side of the spectrum. I let myself get inspired by what I collected and created my very personal Imagery & Animations out of it through various techniques such as Compositing, Hand Drawn & Computer Animation, Morphing, Layering, Stop Motion Animation.
Paris combines so much Contrast, so much Beauty, Life and Creativity on the one hand, but also darker Aspects of a Metropolis on the other at the same time, and this work tries to capture that in a rather abstract and individual way.
Created during a Residency at Cité Internationale des Arts Paris.
