The Unknown

A stop motion film about the short life of an ant. Created in 6 months from pre-production to final edit, this pseudo-documentary was my final film made at DePaul University for my Masters in Animation.

“Do ants have ovaries? This is a question that many people ask, yet few actually know. In this animated documentary we explore the reproductive life of the ant, to discover that we don’t know what we already know.”

Here’s an edit I did for my friend Clayton’s reel. This was shot in slow motion and I took some liberties to change the speed and add a music track by Modeselektor. Check out Clayton Hauck photography at his website or contact his agency.

we don’t want to be wholesome

This animation was inspired by the spoken word record “God Isn’t Dead” by Gertrude Behanna. Here Ms. Behanna talks to a church congregation about all of her past transgressions and regrets, while the audience finds some of her recovery quite funny. I cut up pieces of the audio and thought it would play nicely with cut up pieces of fashion magazines and junk mail.

This animation is currently on display in Woman Made Gallery’s Consumer Culture show in Chicago, IL May 4th – June 21st, 2012.
