Hey all! Guest contributor Kirsten Lepore here! Thought I’d put together an occasional animation-themed post with some of my all-time favs, both old and new.
In the current landscape of computer generated and manipulated imagery, there’s still something so special about a pencil drawing on paper — or in the case of animation, thousands of them. So these 5 films, all mostly or entirely hand drawn, have been some of the most inspiring for me over the years.
“Triange” by Grace Nayoon Rhee
Grace Nayoon Rhee is an amazingly talented young filmmaker, currently working towards her MFA at CalArts. She imbues the characteristically harmless hand drawn medium with such a disturbing and cinematic quality, that I can’t help but get completely sucked in to the world she’s created. The sound is incredible as well.
