Simpler than Blu

Firekites - AUTUMN STORY - chalk animation from Lucinda Schreiber and Yanni Kronenberg.
My favorite part is the chalk accumulating on the board. And the simple, obvious, yet powerful ending.
How different is this from Blu? Maybe not too different. I would call it a tribute. The style, the dynamics. Yet the addition of the canvas, the frame, turns it into a slightly different game, a play with pictures, and with types of spaces. I only wish this latter element were slightly more present in the film, and we got more often to travel outside of the canvas.

chuckart, there seems to be a problem with the embedding of this file over at Vimeo. Just click the video to go the the original page and see the video.
michelle, the band is called Firekites.

Have you seen William Kentridge's work? The chalk shadows remind me of the charcoal shadows he creates in his videos.

This is inspiring. I feel like trying to make something artsy fartsy today. Very cool, I like the art and the song you chose.
