Contemporary Austrian film maker featured at MIAF 2013:
FILM NOIR AND HAND PAINTED ANIMATION TEXTURE:
Patrick Jenkins Labyrinth– for a more conventional style of animation but one that uses intertextuality in its references to icons and tropes of existing Genre and history of Film Noir .
“After being given an enigmatic locket to protect, a detective encounters strange phenomena and beings from the afterlife in this surrealistic film noir story.
Labyrinth is a time based art piece that plays with the traditions of surrealist cinema and film noir, and whose imagery and animation technique refer to the practice of painting. In the film a detective, after being given an enigmatic locket to protect, encounters strange phenomena and beings from the afterlife.
The film was created using the paint on glass animation technique wherein a painting was created under the animation camera using gouache and glycerin. Then a picture was taken with a digital animation camera, and the painting was altered by erasing and adding paint, and re-photographed over and over again.” http://www.artspace-arc.org/content/labyrinth
