Manyhands, Light Work: NY Times Modern Love
The latest film in the New York Times literate and low key ‘Modern Love’ series launched yesterday: a minimalist swirl of abstracted romance by new Vancouver studio Manyhands based on a narrative by Amy Butcher.
Director Stuart Langfield: “My goal was to tell the story without showing people. Instead the characters are represented through color, shape, movement, and some nasty weather. All of the animation was blocked out in 3D to get the basic movement locked down before rotoscoping began. Then some additional rotoscoping was added to the in-betweens, to smooth out some of the transitions.”
