EYE on Art - Reprojection: Paul Sharits and the Analytical Film

Tue 25 Oct, EYE 2, 105min 19:15

Curated by Sandra Gibson & Luis Recoder

In this special program, a collaboration with EYE, we spotlight the work of visual artist Paul Sharits, best known for his work in experimental filmmaking. Sharits’ films, rather than just expecting viewers to follow along, instead invite them to move through the film on their own. Like watching water flowing or a candle flame, observing the small changes in form in his films is almost a meditative experience.

Curated by artists (and Sharits fans) Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder, this program presents two of their artistic precursor’s films.

The films in this program have no dialogue.

Animated Documentaries

Thu 27 Oct, EYE 2, 75min 11:45
Fri 28 Oct, EYE 2, 17:00

With its rich metaphorical language, animation can visualize that which is invisible to the human eye. When there’s no film footage of an actual event or in the case of internal truths like memories, turning to animation opens an alternative door to representing reality. The films in this program tell real life stories, using materials that have a direct relation to a certain historical reality, like the audio recording of an interview — traces of that very reality beyond what you see on screen. Choosing animation as a vessel for those stories, these filmmakers bring out a reality that otherwise might have remained unseen.

Wandering through landscapes

The unparalleled beauty of traveling — it’s a mind-expanding experience of wandering, searching, finding and not finding. To be on the road, either with a clear destination or without. To embark on travels that are sometimes dream-like, sometimes harsh.

In this collection of films the landscape is central to the story. You’ll experience sceneries including breath-taking views from a train window, a Malian musician's flight to Europe, and a little boat’s journey around the world in good times and in bad.

Imagine: Roaming freely through an eclectic range of landscapes all around the world, without even having to leave your seat!

In October and November you’ll find two great art exhibitions at the relaxed, art-minded ClinkNOORD hostel.

Slovak author duo Ové Pictures (Michaela Čopíková and Veronika Obertová) presents their traveling exhibition Searching for Beauty. Interactive installations including a zoetrope and dioramas explore different views of understanding beauty, combining new and traditional ideas in a fascinating collection.

Cartoonist and animation director Dan Meth displays a selection of his drawings and paintings on paper, including the artwork for his sci-fi graphic novel The Regolith. You’ll also see the original art he created for KLIK’s social platforms. A creator of ‘viral’ animated comedy, his work presents an eclectic and colorful mix of the funny and bizarre.

You can meet and mingle with the artists and fellow artlovers on Wednesday 26 October (from 17:30 until 18:30) at a festive get-together.

One With Nature

Wed 26 Oct, EYE 2, 75min 17:15
Fri 28 Oct, EYE 2, 75min 18:45

Making it work

Over the course of our existence, us humans have become increasingly detached from nature. We often think about nature as a static entity, as something we can or should have complete control of — even going as far to believe that nature is man’s pliable property. Luckily though, more and more of us are realizing that humans in fact constitute just a small part of that very nature.

These shorts show the many ways in which humans and nature clash and come together, trying to making it work while inhabiting one and the same world.

Out of This World

Tue 25 Oct, EYE 2, 75min 21:30

Expedition into the imaginary

When you've got a fresh piece of paper — or a blank computer screen — why visualize a world we already know? Animation enables us to create whole new worlds from scratch, and it can take us as far as our imagination will allow. It can invent strange creatures and give rise to even stranger landscapes, places where our boring old physics no longer apply.

These shorts bend (or even break) the rules of the world as we know it. Come along on this peculiar expedition!

The Girl Without Hands

Wed 26 Oct, EYE 1, 75min 19:15

This handdrawn fairytale for adults is an adaptation of a Grimm Brothers tale: A miller’s daughter is sold to the devil, and her hands are cut off when she makes her escape. Entrancing with its minimalistic style — painting entire worlds with spare brushstrokes and a whirlwind of colors — the film tells its cruel, dark story with great sophistication and tenderness. With the fewest of blots and lines, The Girl Without Hands conveys the biggest emotions while strikingly blending characters and their environment.

An Annecy prize winner, this film is director Sébastien Laudenbach’s feature-length debut.

Grab a warm sweater and maybe even bring a pair of binoculars — you might spot some interesting Amsterdam wildlife (but please don’t feed the locals).

Our moving cinema is powered by Volle Band. Volle Band is an audiovisual performance collective centered around customized bicycles. Volle Band explores the local urban environment through guerrilla audiovisual performances; areas that are normally overlooked are proven to be very interesting once used as a stage for their bicycles.
The bicycle with its active and participatory attitude is the symbol of the new, inverted tourist exploring his/her direct environment that Volle Band advocates. The team consists of sound artist & composer Sjoerd Leijten, visual artist & animator Didier Jansen and psychiatrist Olle Kruyt.

How do we envision the world we inhabit, and what does this tell us about the way we think of life in general? The landscape has always been a popular image in art, one that is tightly connected to our dreams and ideals, our vision of Utopia. Celebrating the 500th anniversary of Thomas More’s Utopia, this exhibition explores our shifting perceptions of nature and our involvement in it.

Through installations ranging from experimental animated film and games, to architectural structures, this exhibition represents different animated views on our surroundings: Shifting perceptions of nature as a place of peace and quiet to an Anthropocene environment increasingly affected and modified by man — perhaps drawing us closer to Dystopia?

Copyright Workshop

Dutch copyright in animation

As it’s all too easy to get riddled by all the different rules and regulations, it’s important for any animation professional to have a good understanding of the realm of copyright — whether it’s to protect your own intellectual property or determine whether you can legally use parts from someone else’s work.

Over the course of this workshop, attorney Frank Melis will talk about copyright in the field of animation, and discuss some of the exceptions that allow for the use of copyrighted material without the holder’s permission. You will also work on specific case studies determined on the basis of questions from the audience.

On day 1 you’ll focus on the ground principles of storyboarding.
On day 2 you’ll work on an assignment: in small groups you’ll explore a short scene and lay the groundwork for its visual storytelling.
On day 3 you’ll review and discuss the groups’ results.

Talk: The Heart of Brazil

Thu 27 Oct, KLIK Café, 16:30

With Gustavo Karam, studio Le Cube

Ayrton Senna’s message is on the wrist of Olympic athletes. In an unprecedented action, the Ayrton Senna Institute launches “The Heart of Brazil” as support and encouragement for athletes during the Olympics.
Even the generation that never saw Ayrton Senna compete in an F1 race knows that winning at home was a great motivation for him, one of the greatest idols in world sports. In a year so important for Brazilian sports, the Ayrton Senna. Institute launches No Pulso do Brasil (The Heart of Brazil), an animated film with a message from Senna to athletes. The images that recreate Ayrton’s difficulties and how he overcame them for one of his most beautiful victories may be seen through an augmented reality app attached to a charm bracelet that is being distributed to the Brazilian delegation.
The action, created by J. Walter Thompson in partnership with the animation studio Le Cube, initially estimated the production of 2,000 bracelets, but the buzz was so great that another 32,000 of them are already in production and an even greater amount is expected to be distributed soon. “Our goal was to show athletes the excitement and pride that Ayrton Senna always had about being Brazilian and competing for something for his country,” says Gustavo Soares, Creative Director of J. Walter Thompson. He says that in addition to the values that motivated Senna, printed on the inside of the bracelet, the charm carries the driver’s unique message, that only after the eighth attempt was he able to realize his dream of winning at home. “What ended up being his most epic win,” he adds.

Time Management Workshop

Thu 27 Oct, EYE Studio, 20:00

Getting your priorities straight

Does your mind overflow when priorities start to pile up? Do you find it difficult to get those pressing, less pleasant matters out of the way, or do you struggle to follow through on what you promised yourself you would do? In a field that demands versatility, professionals in the creative sector feel compelled to multitask — more often resulting in stress and restlessness rather than order and efficiency.

With her broad experience in the field of arts and culture, coach Marion Beltman will help you put first things first — making you feel more energized to take on things both pleasant and cumbersome.

Participants will be asked to prepare a small assignment; sign up via an email to industry@klik.amsterdam before 26 October.

Up Close and Personal: Aymeric Kevin (sold out)

Thu 27 Oct, EYE Studio, 120min 13:00

If you’re a background artist, art director or a professional interested in the Japanese animation scene, this is the program you don’t want to miss! We’re presenting an in-depth session with background director Aymeric Kevin. In this two-hour program he will zoom in on background art and art direction for (Japanese) series.

Aymeric Kevin grew up wanting to be an animator. After he co-directed two short films (Fenrir, The King and the Beaver) during his time at the French animation school Gobelins, he developed a love of creating worlds, backgrounds and playing with light and colors.

Working as a background director on productions for Adventure Time, Space Dandy, Ping Pong The Animation (Grand prize of best TV Series at the Tokyo Anime Award 2015) and others, he feels blessed to have been able to closely work with some of his long time heroes like Masaaki Yuasa, Eunyoung Choi and Shinichiro Watanabe.

Aymeric Kevin worked on a wide range of visual styles for productions based in North America, Europe and Japan, and he loves the challenge of finding the right style of backgrounds that will create a seamless yet impactful chemistry with the animations.

Grab your chance to ask this animation great all about his work process and art direction for series — make sure to prepare a set of questions so no burning questions remain unasked.
