SPARROW DUET, 4min, USA, Animation/Experimental
Directed by Steve Socki

Animated abstract shapes and gestures dance together playfully with bird-like motion. The original music score was composed and performed by Gary Chang

Director’s Statement:

“Sparrow Duet” film: Steve Socki; music: Gary Chang; November 2105

My animated film developed from hand-drawn pastel art, based on motion studies of birds, and the moving patterns they suggested. The film is a non-narrative story, focusing on the timing and the motion, not the artwork. It’s a kind of short dance piece that’s choreographed with abstract shapes and textures – interacting playfully with each other and woven together with the impressionistic music, creating a more poetic etude.

I would classify my work as Experimental Animation, since the story does not follow a typical narrative. This piece could enter either Animation or Experimental categories, based on festival criteria.
