get deep inside the heads behind sleeping beauty
27 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is an absolutely fascinating Technicolor short. in the artists own words you hear what goes on inside their heads as they paint. with that you'll understand fully how the overall design and backgrounds of Sleeping Beauty--the concurrent production animated feature this short was intended to support--got to be so endlessly stunning. watch it with a group that includes an artiste or 2, then take vote which tree rendition is favored and why. the 4 are as calculatedly unique as they are visionary given this ordinary outcrop of nature. me and my wife agreed the results're a 3-way dead heat, and i won't say who's where. FYI: this is all about feel and individual interpretation, not about animating as the subject's obviously a static one
