The project:

To make a short animated film about the subjective experience of the female body, produced in response to the collections of drawings on show in the MuseumsQuartier, and made by drawing directly into the computer. The film will be screened/exhibited in quartier 21.

The residency will involve developing the film work I make using drawn digital techniques: drawing directly into the computer using a Wacom tablet and pen, I use Photoshop software like a traditional animation light box. This is a technique I have developed in order to facilitate and exploit experimentation. This unique opportunity for intensive research, study and development of my drawing work, will permit me to push the boundaries of drawing in digital film-making.

In subject, the film will continue my focus on the subjective experience of the female body, and specifically the connections between physical and emotional experience. In addition, it is my aim that the film will further Culture2Culture’s project to explore the realms of female desire.

I plan an extensive programme of drawing and visual research, in response to the collections of drawings in the MuseumsQuartier, particularly those of Schiele and Klimt, which I was impressed and inspired by during my visit to the MuseumsQuartier for the Tricky Women festival.

These drawings will be developed into a animated film through a process of experimentation and development. The Synchro Film Prize (awarded at Tricky Women 2003), of €1500 worth of post-production facilities, will enable me to work closely with Synchro Film & Video to produce and complete the project, in terms of sound, editing and outputting. I would be particularly keen to work with Synchro in experimentation between digital media and film print.

The final film will be shown publicly in Quartier 21, either as a one-off screening event, or as an installation piece.

I will bring the equipment I need for my work, in the form of my laptop computer. With this I can draw, animate, paint, render and edit picture and sound.
