She Collage

She Collage

She Collage is part response to the work of Southern California–based collage artist Terry Braunstein, part reflection on the practice of art-making. Like Braunstein's art, the film is itself a collage—in this case, frame-by-frame hand-manipulated images of Braunstein, paper cutout stopmotion animation, archival footage, and an assemblage of sounds.

Rectangle & Rectangles

Rectangle & Rectangles 1984

This is a didactic film in disguise. A progression of brilliant geometric shapes bombard the screen to the insistent beat of drums. The filmmaker programmed a computer to coordinate a highly complex operation involving an electronic beam of light, colour filters and a camera. This animation film, without words, is designed to expose the power of the cinematic medium, and to illustrate the abstract nature of time.

A Feather Tale

A Feather Tale 1992

In this animated short, a woman, taking on her lover's fantasies, adorns herself in her finest feathers and assumes a seductive but demeaning role. Caught up in his own game, the man plays on to the bitter end--a cruel game in which love is stripped of its golden glow, leaving only the naked reality of dependency and desperation.

Ancestors

Ancestors 1978

Ancestors is a film about spiritual forefathers and mothers in a purely fanciful sense. These are classical figures, anatomical figures, fairy tale figures and romantic figures all thrown in together - all my creative root-sources, in a kind of playful tribute. Like part 2 of Duo Concertantes, it's a moving single picture, now doubled.
