Another film in a series of collaborations between Derick Wycherly and Caleb Wood.
Teeter See Totter Saw is an animated dialogue between two animators. One animator draws a frame, the other animator draws the next. Without a plan, the film forms itself as the two animators suggest a new direction with each frame.
As the great Roald Dahl once wrote: There’s no earthly way of knowing, Which direction we are going.
Sound + Music by Julian Neel, Caleb Wood, Derick Wycherly
Inspired by the frame battles of Nobuhiro Aihara and Keiichi Tanaami.
The Blue Pelikan is an animated documentary focusing on Hungary during the end of the socialist era.
In the 40 years of socialism only a lucky few had the privilege to travel abroad, especially to the West. In 1989 the iron curtain fell, and the borders opened up. But the first free generation of young people did not have enough money to travel to the West. What is the value of freedom if you cannot use it?
This documentary takes us deep into the secrets how young people then tricked the system in order to travel to the West. All the interviews in the film are original, not re-enactments.
