CAMERAS TAKE FIVE

by Steven WOLOSHEN
2003 / 35mm / color / sound / 1S / 3' 00




The enduring romance of lines are explored in this colorful handmade cameraless animation by Montreal Animator, Steven WOLOSHEN. Dave Brubeck's classic Jazz standard, Take Five is the starting point of this abstract visual interpretation. In Cinemascope.
"I began this film in my usual fashion, which is to say, i hadn't planned any narratives, characters or section as starting points for this animation. As i worked and listened to the track - at least twenty times - the line drawing (representing the sound of a saxophone) were leading me either to one side of the frame or the other. Two main color began to dominate, and i was sectioning my parts into choruses, solos and refrains. Although Take Five is a Jazz standard, i feel that it is more structured more as a pop tune. As a result, a more narrative film structure started to emerge".
