Artistic genius and fragility intersect in this surreal, Oscar®-winning animation | Aeon Videos

Artistic genius and fragility intersect in this surreal, Oscar®-winning animation | Aeon Videos | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it
Widely regarded as a maverick genius of animation, the Canadian artist Ryan Larkin (1943-2007) seemed destined for a successful career after breaking out with the influential short films Walking (1968) and Street Musique (1972). However, addiction and emotional trauma eventually brought his creative life to a halt, leaving him begging for money on the streets of Montreal. This experimental animation from 2004 finds fellow animator Chris Landreth interviewing Larkin about his brief, storied animation career before confronting him about his alcoholism. Rendered in a world where emotional scars manifest themselves as surreal physical aberrations, Ryan is a strange and striking glimpse into Larkin’s life, including the sometimes fraught relationship between creativity and mental health. Ryan won the 2005 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. Following the film’s completion, Larkin revived his animation career before dying from cancer in 2007.

How Filmmakers Tell Their Stories: Three Insightful Video Essays Demystify the Craft of Editing, Composition & Color | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it

Everyone knows that if you want to make a movie, you first have to write down its story. Many of us have tried our hands at writing movie stories ourselves — as treatments, screenplays, or whichever other forms the industry has come up with — and some have made careers out of it.

Citizenfour Movie Review & Film Summary (2014) | Roger Ebert | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it
Though superlatives can mischaracterize any movie’s

A (Very Brief) History of Experimental Cinema

A (Very Brief) History of Experimental Cinema | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it
The world of experimental or avant-garde (vanguard) cinema has a history just as rich as narrative film (it could be said that the two run on parallel tracks). While usually associated with European filmmakers, America has its own rich tradition of avant-garde and experimental filmmakers. Very loosely defined as any film that doesn't use narrative cinematic technique to achieve its goals, the avant-garde is worthy of study for any filmmaker or student of film. The Dissolve recently featured two experimental avant-garde shorts -- one by the filmmaker who made the amazing credits for Enter The
