SYNOPSIS

This strand contains flashing images.

Roll Film 1990 dir. Neil Taylor (23 mins)

“An animated film about animation. Silent. Hovers around the threshold of animation drifting in and out, kinesthetic and optical sensations strong. An attempt to liberate drawing for animation from the straight jacket of tracing. Musical associations evident.” Screen Australia

Rote Movie 1994 dir. Dirk de Bruyn (10.58 mins)

“A traveller contemplates on his loneliness and the fragmentation of his life and 'self'.” Screen Australia

Rainbow Diary 1984 dir. Ivor Cantrill (17 mins)

“Hand-drawn directly onto 16mm film, this animation is a 'diary' of daily drawing-on-film practice by Ivor Cantrill over a period of 18 months. Drawing style ranges from bold geometric patterns, to a delicate calligraphy.” The National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra

Tales from Vienna Hoods 1989 dir. Marcus Bergner (20 mins)

“This bioptic experimental animation incorporates stroboscopic effects and live animation. The after-images/effects are those of a Rorschach ink blot test mixed with the art of modern cinema. The film's soundtrack is a Straussian word-association waltz.” Melbourne International Film Festival
