Animation as art
26 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is film as art. Walking is known for being ground-breaking -- the interpretations of the movement of the human body in so many styles, some so natural and realistic they could almost pass for photography, others so abstract they are just a few dabs of paint. The extremes of perspective and style reflected the counterculture and psychedelic culture of the times. Ryan Larkin is an animator's animator, maybe he's not famous in pop culture, but he's famous in industry circles because he opened up new possibilities. Everyone walks all the time, in real life and in animation, and Larkin meditates on the possibilities in such a simple movement.
