‘Intervelometer’ by DAK (Deniz Merdanogullari, Aparna Kapur and myself) was made at Trick 17- a 52 hour Stop Motion Competition. 17 teams picked themes, genres and other variables out of a hat on a Friday night, and had to submit a finished film by Sunday 10pm. We picked ‘Human’, ‘Wild Card’ (which gave us freedom to do what we wanted!) and a music track (which we had to use somewhere in the film).
Our film won ‘Best Picture’ at the competition and was featured on Motionographer a site that inspires filmmakers, animators and designers alike on Dec 4th.
‘Intervelometer’ attempts to explore the essence of animation (for us!)- Persistence of vision, light, human form and time. The film also pays tribute to Eadweard Muybridge, an iconic figure in both- Photography and Animation.
