BRENT GREEN DEBUTS SCENES FROM HIS NEW FEATURE
One of the most creative and fascinating young filmmakers working today is Brent Green, the Pennsylvania-based animator whose work we first brought to our readers’ attention in 2005 when we selected him as one of our “25 New Faces.” His new film, Gravity, a feature, is his most ambitious film yet, and at the Andrew Edlin Gallery site he has posted a preview that makes me psyched to see the whole film. You can check it out here.
Gravity promises to be an amazing blend of live action, narrative, and puppet stop-motion animation in a fantastically constructed set built on the grounds of his farm. Donna from Nervous Films has been keeping a great blog about the progress of the film and after viewing the footage you should check it out too. (Start at the beginning.) And for something finished of Brent’s, here’s a clip from his Paulina Hollers.
