Watch Audience FEEDBACK Video: SPARROW DUET short film

Watch and see the best of the August 2016 Family/Animation Film Festival

  MOVIE POSTERSPARROW DUET, 4min, USA, Animation/Experimental
Directed by Steve Socki

Animated abstract shapes and gestures dance together playfully with bird-like motion. The original music score was composed and performed by Gary Chang

Director’s Statement:

“Sparrow Duet” film: Steve Socki; music: Gary Chang; November 2105

My animated film developed from hand-drawn pastel art, based on motion studies of birds, and the moving patterns they suggested. The film is a non-narrative story, focusing on the timing and the motion, not the artwork. It’s a kind of short dance piece that’s choreographed with abstract shapes and textures – interacting playfully with each other and woven together with the impressionistic music, creating a more poetic etude.

I would classify my work as Experimental Animation, since the story does not follow a typical narrative. This piece could enter either Animation or Experimental categories, based on festival criteria.

Film Type:Animation, Experimental, Short

The animated short from HouseSpecial Director Aaron Sorenson is a German Expressionist-inspired design mash-up of stop-motion and illustration with a decidedly adult twist.

Director’s Statement:

“Jailbreak” was inspired most directly by the silent German Expressionist films such as “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” and “The Golem.” But it was also inspired by my love of prison break films such as “Escape from Alcatraz,” “I Was a Prisoner on a Chain Gang,” and “Papillon.” The main character Klaus is inspired by cubism (mostly Picasso), squashing his form into something rather flattened and kind of 2.5d. The set was designed to reflect that same aesthetic.

Stop motion just seemed right for the story in terms of atmosphere and capturing an intentional theatrical feel. The textures and tangibility of practical sets and characters is really arresting and doing it in black and white makes you focus on the textures.
