This is my fourth day as assistant editor/animator for Ken Jacobs and last night we shot, edited, animated, stylized and finalized a final film… all in one day. We didn’t waste time and the creativity was flowing like mad. He’s been working with very high resolution images along with macro-lenses, combined with special animation treatments that produces a very unique surreal feeling I can’t easily explain (nor would I want to, never reveal an artist’s process!). The final film came out as an amazing achievement and we were both amazed at the final result.
…working with Ken has really inspired me to create new and unique animations myself, especially with 3D anaglyph styles. I’ve proposed a few treatments which really didn’t really align with his art/filmmaking, so instead he suggested that I explore those treatments to my own projects… so expect some crazy new work soon.
