Robert Breer Stylee

I say Robert Breer, but I didn't know he existed at the time. I did know that Stuart Hilton existed though, and he definitely knew about Robert Breer.

I completed this piece in my third year at Duncan of Jordanstone art college in Dundee, which would have been, errrrr, 2000 / 2001 I think. I've been corrupted by After Effects since - I wish I still had the patience for this kind of animation. I've been meaning to do something similar for a while now actually.

Below is one of Robert Breer's many amazing films, Swiss Army Knife with Rats and Pigeons from 1980. I wish someone would release a dvd of all his stuff.

This is Stuart Hilton's Save Me - you can clearly see the Breer influence. Still lovely in it's own right though. I was a bit obsessed with this back in the day...
