Approaches for Perform brief

Whilst these are all filmed, they have real time movement and employ imagemaking and atmosphere making techniques that are within your grasp in a live performance. Many also have a the sense of a static viewpoint, much the same as you will likely be dealing with with an audience watching you perform within a certain space.

PANDA BEAR "Surfer's Hymn" from m ss ng p eces on Vimeo. Clever use of darkness and projections and high contrast black and white.

The Paper Cinema. Nic Beard, the creator, came to talk to our first year a couple of years ago. He is an avid location sketcher and is able to capture so much character in his static imagery that when combined with the movement of the images on batons in layers in front of a camera, you almost forget that this is not animation in the conventional sense.

Bad Things That Could Happen from This Is It on Vimeo. Playful use of scale and movement, and ingenuity in creating illusions of things such as fire and written words, all using simple materials with clever attention to detail and strong aesthetic cohesion.

Assemblage Boy - By Michael Swaney and Simon Williams ©2010 from Michael Swaney on Vimeo. Employing abstract "seeing sound" approach to surreally amusing effect.
