Ribbon Dancer is a short bitter-sweet experimental stop motion animation film. The character is whipped up out of glitter ribbon, his beating heart evidence that he is coming to life, only to disintegrate after a few brief moments of dancing. It was shot frame by frame in front of a green screen. I liked the effect of the fragmented ribbon pieces appearing and coming together to form my character. The music is an original score I created with Garage Band on my iPhone, one of my many recent two-finger compositions. I play by ear from songs that have recently begun to appear in my head.
I hope you enjoy it!
