REVIEW: ITFS and FMX 2017

Stuttgart: Beim Internationalen Trickfilmfestival in Stuttgart (ITFS) war auch die Trickfilmklasse vertreten…

…und präsentierte in der dortigen GAMEZONE verschiedenste Spiele und künstlerische Installationen.

»Übungen in Neugierde« war der Titel der Ausstellung, die für den Betrachter zu einer Entdeckertour wurde.

Eine Highlight war die Präsentation dreier brandneuer VR-Projekte: Bei »Where is Joe« kann in die Gestalt eines Riesen geschlüpft, und eine virtuelle Stadt erkundet werden.

»Zoetrop« macht es möglich, mittels virtueller Farbe im 3D-Raum zu zeichnen und eigene Animationen zu erstellen und »das Labor« verbindet visuelle Wahrnehmung mit haptischer Erfahrung und bietet ein spannendes Tasterlebnis mit Überraschungseffekt.


Trickfilme von Studierenden wurden auf der Werkschau im Kino präsentiert.

Parallel zum ITFS fand zudem vom 1. – 5. Mai die FMX, Conference on Animation, Effects, Games und Transmedia unter dem Motto »Beyond the Screen« statt. Die Trickfilmklasse präsentierte sich und ihren Studiengang an einem von den Studierenden designten Stand.

Türen und Tore öffnen sich und führen zu unkonventionellen Ausstellungsplätzen und zu den bereits bestehenden Kunst- und Kulturorten, die den Besuchern neue, interessante, vielleicht auch kontroverse Ein- und Ausblicke auf zeitgenössische künstlerische Positionen bieten.

In April Theresa Grysczok will travel to Antananarivo where she will lead several animation workshops of her signature animation style #stop-motion.

Bios:
Ines Christine Geisser und Kirsten Carina Geisser sind Schwestern, geboren und aufgewachsen im schönen Frankenwald. Seit 2009 arbeiten sie gemeinsam an Comiczines und Animationsfilmen.
Ines Christine Geißer wurde 1982 in Naila geboren. Sie studierte Comic und Trickfilm an der Kunsthochschule Kassel mit einem Abschluss im Bereich Trickfilm und anschließendem MeisterschülerInnenjahr bei Prof. Martina Bramkamp.
Kirsten Carina Geißer wurde 1986 in Naila geboren. Sie studierte an der Kunsthochschule Halle im Fachbereich Bild/Raum/Objekt/Glas. “Lucky” ist ihr Diplomprojekt.

Über den Film:
“Lucky ” is looking for happiness. This animated short is questioning our search as well as its aim: What does luck mean for the individual? Is failure the only possibility?

“The film focusses on the pursuit of happiness. Failure and desire play a part, and the sweet smell of childhood lingers in the air, but it has lost some of its romance. The idea that this film is maybe not about horses at all suggests itself quickly. These precious friends are simply well-suited for being protagonists as their image is not yet as worn as Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny and they are still complex in terms of content.
The horses trot and gallop across the screen and even drink at the bar. These horses are not happy, maybe for one exception. Loss follows great success, love is only answered by a painful lack of understanding, Black Beauty turns into Broken Beauty. This film does not play in Wendy-mode and neither serves the romance of horse loving teenagers.”

– Prof. Jens Gusse
