Today was the third programme of This Is Not A Cartoon. (For more information on this great screening event you can find the website here)
- Beautiful design and style to this digital animation
- Sweet little story of an older man who is left and cared for by this nun
- See the lovely memories he had with his wife, with clever use of colour in happy memories and lack of in not
- Amazing amount of detail with some large sets being made for this lovely textured black and white stop motion animation
- Very styalised with each character having this artistic style of large eyes and noses
- Funny little story of a taxidermist Ernie, narrative with lovely soft and clear voice actor. And his life as he strives to be brave and be the windscreen not the insect
- Beautifully made with the digital 2D animation style
- Lovely use of music to build on the emotions shown through the animation as there is no dialogue within the film
- Clever theme to show memory loss diseases and how they affect not only themselves but those around them
- Amazing use of pixelation throughout this beautiful film, with lovely uses of stop motion in places. Has a lovely nostalgic old style of film and perfect use of music to build on the feelings of the film
- A great Love Story, with voice over telling the story, about relationships through this over exaggeration of breakups and how women and men differ and yet similar.
- I really enjoyed all the packing up they each did of their feelings and moments of relationships and how they themselves were then packed away in a ‘Amélia & Duarte’ box under ‘Secção Amores Perdidos’ or the ‘Lost Love Section’.
- Stunning use of animation with cycles and replacements to illustrate this piece of music
- Took a lot resources and preparation with the movements, objects and timings as the whole animation is continuous
- Incredibly eye catching, smooth and memorable you can see this film being one of those ones that an audience would share with their friends when they see it
- Great camera movement in shot to shot, really keeping the realism enough to understand the movements in this animation
- Sketchy hand drawn and painted frames have a great texture and life to them during the buzz of the footie game
- Good mix of the stadium sounds to build on the atmosphere of this short film
We were joined by Spectators director Ross Hogg for a Q&A following this screening.
