Another test abstracting and manipulating imagery to music. Just a rough early go at this looking for potential ideas for future projects. This particular video uses the same technical processes to abstract the imagery as the previous post's video, but instead of using 3D animation, this time the original footage is old-school direct animation or painting on film. Here I'm using a 16mm direct animation project I did as an example for a class assignment and then did an off-the-wall telecine at 4K with the Panasonic GH5 then finished in HD. Lots of steps to create something new out of something old. Music again by Monplaisir under a CC 0 license.
One of two new experiments somewhat inspired by early Oskar Fischinger work. This first one takes the 3D animation done in Houdini which is currently on the home page on this site, and breaks it down and reconstructs it within Final Cut Pro to create the new animated piece seen here. Probably because the heavy guitar in the music by Monplaisir, used under a CC 0 license, and the somewhat comic book like textures, I am reminded of the animated Heavy Metal movie from the 80's.
