16mm, 6 minutes, 1978
Animation & Soundtrack by Ruth Hayes
Nine separate animated cycles of human figure drawings
intercut with self-portraits and rotoscoped ocean footage
repeat, converge and spill over into watery confusion.
Produced as my Senior Thesis from Harvard's Visual and Environmental Studies Department, this film resulted from an exploration of the tensions between figure drawing in the studio and drawing for animation. I was lucky to have George Griffin as my thesis advisor.
Director's Choice, Sinking Creek Film Festival, 1979.
