Last week’s SIGGRAPH conference was once again the showcase for fresh directions in animation. One of the many ingenious works being presented would seem to have been Chris Landreth’s animated short, Subconscious Password. Landreth snagged an Oscar for his 2004 short Ryan and seems to be back in fine form, with the new film already winning best short film at the 2013 Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Landreth has again partnered with the respected National Film Board of Canada to this time create a stereoscopic 3D work that combines computer animation with stop motion of humans, archival footage in the public domain and even photos of James Joyce projected onto a digital character. The trailer below provides a taste of what looks like something to keep an eye out for on the big screen.
