Letter I – TRT 2:01
The films in the Alphabet series explore direct animation and structural cinema. Using the 16mm celluloid as a canvas, the work explores the formal possibilities of film and the compositional strategies of time-based media. Direct or camera-less animation is a technique of working directly working on to the celluloid surface. I used the letters of the alphabet to organize the hundreds of experiments that explored the extended techniques of painting, scratching, or collaging directly onto film.
