Cameras Take Five
Canada / 2:53 / 2002 / sound / colour
The enduring romance of lines is explored in this colourful handmade cameraless animation by Montreal animator Steven Woloshen. Dave Brubeck's classic jazz standard "Take Five" is the starting point of this abstract visual interpretation. In Cinemascope.

"I began this film in my usual fashion, which is to say, I hadn't planned any narratives, characters or sections as starting points for this animation. As I worked and listened to the track - at least twenty times - the line drawing (representing the sound of a saxophone) was leading me either to one side of the frame or the other. The main colours began to dominate, and I was sectioning my parts into choruses, solos and refrains. Although 'Take Five' is a jazz standard, I feel that this is structured more as a pop tune." - Steven Woloshen
