The Bees Knees


 I have a lot of creative irons in the fire.

The newest, direct animation, is so much fun! I started letterpress printing on film leader, and have two very short clips below. One is bees and butterflies, the other is a font of type set in the press before distribution. It makes a crazy sound, like a cello! This is the ink printed over the sound file on the edge of the film. I love it! (You might turn your sound down a tad, it's a little loud.)

 
 
I'm having a great time with all the different processes I've been engaging, but find it hard to switch gears. This weekend I am off to do a bunch of video work on beautiful Bainbridge Island!

  1. the films are nifty, the butterfly one is so butterflyish. and the letters making that cello sound crack me up-it's like they're resisting you making them into words and instead doing what they want to. at least, those are my first impressions. i would love a samosa or two, please.

  2. Velma, love your interpretation, first impressions are best — yes, like the letters are resisting! You will have to come here for your samosas, I'm afraid. But since you'll soon be in the neighborhood, maybe we can work something out!
