ONE MINUTE ART HISTORY: A HAND-DRAWN ANIMATION

Filmmaker and educator Cao Shu captures the history of art in an experimental short film that lasts for less than one minute. Throughout the film, the central character goes through the small motions of everyday movements like checking the time and having a drink, with each frame rendered in a different art historical style. The film starts in ancient Egypt and progresses through Chinese ink paintings and Japanese block prints to Modigliani and Basquiat-style portraits. Cao renders a vast array of art styles in a manner that is evocative without being overworked. He lives and works in Hangzhou, where he teaches at the China Academy of Art.

UNCONVENTIONAL LOVE STORIES FROM ANIMATOR SAWAKO KABUKI

Unconventional Love Stories From Animator Sawako Kabuki

“Love is a wonderful thing that colours our life, but love is not always visible and sometimes is vague and ephemeral,” Tokyo-based Sawako Kabuki notes sagely. Her latest animation, Ici, là et partout, “is filled with love and shows the state of being carried away by love,” although not using the visual tropes you’d usually expect to accompany a tale of blossoming romance.
The animator and illustrator, who graduated in graphic design from Tama Art University, is now using her skills to narrate the universal experience of heartbreak. “It is almost impossible to understand each other completely even when a couple love each other very very much and sometimes it causes heartbreak,” she explains. “I expressed the vanity of such a heartbreaking love using a ceaseless metamorphosis technique [in Ici, là et partout. By the way, when this film was completed, my ex-boyfriend had dumped me.”

NEGATIVE SPACE: A SHORT FILM THAT EXPLORES THE ART OF PACKING

Presented above is the trailer for the stop-motion film Negative Space, co-directed by Baltimore-based animators Max Porter and Ru Kuwahata. The short film is an adaptation of the eponymous poem by Ron Koertge, which tells the story of a relationship between a father and son through the organized art of packing. Although both directors immediately connected with the message of the poem, the piece struck a personal chord with Kuwahata whose father had worked as an airline pilot.
