“Siblings” Kinetic Sculptures by Fabrice Le Nézet
While working on sketches for an upcoming sculpture exhibition, London director and visual artist Fabrice Le Nézet imagined the metal constructions coming to life and decided to make a short CG film exploring the idea of “function without functionality.”
Fabrice Le Nézet: “The playful repeating movements give each sculpture a distinct character resulting in the personification of those abstract dancing figures.
“One of the main challenges was to find the right narrative structure for the film. It started as a virtual exhibition but then gradually became more of a moving picture. Animation was done in Maya and rendered in Redshift.
“I worked closely with music producer Niccolò Chotkowski to present each design with enigmatic sound design – the idea was to bring sensuality and humanity to the film in contrast with the clinical nature of the sculptures.”
