Friday is the day of Venus, the planet of love, beauty and harmony. So every Friday I am going to share something beautiful with you.
Thought of You a short animation film with two dancers. Beautiful. I posted this video several years ago so you may have seen it.
May your day be filled with beauty and harmony, Carole
Thought of You from Ryan J Woodward on Vimeo.
A beautiful, short 2D animation film with two dancers created by Ryan Woodward, an animator and artist of films including Where the Wild Things Are and Spiderman 3.
This is part of project called Conté Animated. Here are Ryan's own words about Conté Animated:
Conté Animated is a personal project of mine that combines several art forms into one exhibition. These concepts include the following:
1. The exploration of drawing the human figure in a variety of creative approaches. This stems from years of teaching creative gesture drawing.
2. 2d Animation. This process of animation revisits the passion in my early career as a 2d animator. The illusion of life!
3. Contemporary dance. Although I am not a dancer, I appreciate the talent and dedication that goes into a beautifully choreographed piece. A graceful moving human form can communicate more emotion than any length of dialogue.
4. and finally, the exploration of experimental processes and concepts contributes to my own personal growth as an artist. Having worked commercially for years, this project has allowed me to stretch beyond my former understanding of art.
