Preview/excerpt for “Audience of One,” that animated film I may have told you about. Should be done by the end of this summer – stay tuned!

thursday

Barred iron balconies dripping with light,
melted snow, over the avenue in the afternoon.
Golden pink on the cathedral against a paling blue that I see looking up
as I’m walking inside to hear Slavoj Zizek talk about God.
And just before, after I crest the sidewalk from the underground: trees lining snow-kissed hills in the park across the boulevard, wildness beckoning –
Animal heart, caught in the mind of flat asphalt,
salivating at the chancest happening of sky amid grids of glass and steel.

A still from DAY ONE of shooting this animated film I’ve been working on (expanded from the sequence below). 80 more shots and hundreds more hours to go!!

This is one of my first attempts at cell frame animation and the seed of the longer piece I’m working on now. I began it last year as a interpretation of a painting by titian, and I had in mind the notation of written music as I was drafting some of the visuals. I hoped to develop the sequence into the final animation, but the needs of the story demanded I cut this sequence in particular. “Kill your darlings,” the saying goes. Maybe in time I’ll revisit and expand it, but for now here, take a look.
