Event Description

Technique Focus – “Scratch” Film
Scratch film (or ‘direct-to-film’) is, by any definition, a painstaking way to create animation. Scratching images directly into film stock takes a steady hand and a mystical grasp of ‘visual rhythm’. Len Lye and Norman McLaren were the earliest, and most important, exponents of the form but modern day animators such as Richard Reeves and Steve Woloshen (both long-time MIAF favourites) continue to create stunning examples of the technique. This program combines a selection of outstanding recently released ‘scratch’ films with some of the finest classics. The program will be introduced by MIAF’s guest, Steve Woloshen, and will include a retrospective of his finest works along with a collection of historical classics and recently released films in competition
