1. white Out


    from jeff scher Added 83.6K 2,209 53

    A short film about winter. Snow is particularly joyful in how it transforms everything it coversThe brightness of its white forces the iris in your eye to shut way down, and suddenly everything that isn’t snow is in silhouette or defined by shadow. The world becomes a high-contrast graphic representation of itself. This distillation of form allowed me to focus on painting pure motion in relation to the winter landscape. This film is composed of approximately 2,250 watercolor paintings on paper. It is a kind of winter companion to my film “L’Eau Life,” although here the water is frozen and therefore much easier to paint — because painting snow mostly means leaving the paper white. The music is by Shay Lynch, and wonderfully captures the endless cascade of the montage while giving the film a kind of emotional elegance in spite of its vaudevillian pratfalls.This film and essay originally appeared in my blog The Animated Life in the New York Times, Opinion.

        Between coastal weather, variable snow conditions, avalanche danger, snow mobile crashes, unexpected nights in the mountains and my complete lack of experience, this project turned out to be quite a challenge. Nonetheless, I had the time of my life making it! Shot over roughly 7 days on location in Whistler, The Rutherford, and Pemberton, BC.
