I remember sitting in Monte Carlo in a very expensive car. Thomas put a tape into the hi-fi player of this car. The tape contained a sound-track for a movie / ballet he composed and recorded himself. As the music was playing, he explained to me what his imagination of the ballett was. There were all kinds of images coming up like a dance of the staples and a puspin, a bellydance of a rubberband, paperclips dance the blues, or a New Orleans funeral of a rubberband. As we go further and further a film was constructed in my mind influenced by the mood of the music and his words. At that time we decided to work on that project together. Last summer I found two talented students of our institut - Thomas Hinterstoisser and Michael Jank, who were also very interested in the theme. So I gave them just Thomas's drawings and the tape with the musik and asked them to produce a short movie just out of their imagination that comes up from the music. After two month they came back wih a very professional video-tape containing a four minute high quality animation. Parts of this animation can be found on this page.
|The environment was designd by Thomas Bley. He produced bureau-table gadgets and made a photo of them (see above). For the movie all his gadgets where modeled and rendered.|
