sequence 04 again

seq04_09_21_14 from Christopher Magee on Vimeo.

roughly-timed, rough sound effects, but this is what I cobbled together while attending the Ottawa Animation festival of Sequence IV for UArts music composition prof Evan Solot to hand over to his students to try their hands at soundtrack writing. Looking forward to hearing the results!

Sequence IV was previously put together for the Philadelphia Independents screening back in March. More colored shots were added to this version, although the TV Paint waves are yet to be tackled.

musical interpretations

Evan Solot, music composition prof at UArts, offered, in the form of an exercise, to ask his students to score a bit of "ogre/mermaid" to see how different pieces of music affect the atmosphere and meaning of the animation. I'm updating sequence 04, in color, for this purpose.

it's already mid-september. the film has been taking a backseat to school activity and life, but being here in ottawa at the festival is nothing if not a reminder to keep at it, even though it has already taken what has become a ridiculous amount of time (next film will be much simpler, that's for sure).
