'INK' was an experimental piece where I wanted to mix art/animation and life-action characters and see how it would compliment each other...or not. I wrote the poem and wanted to make a short where I give tribute to the creative process of humanity and every forms of creation, invention, innovation and exploration done by humanity. Showing that it all started with putting a pen or pencil, onto a blank surface and transferring the invisible mind onto something visible and sharing it with others.
Someone asked me why I choose actors instead of animated characters. Well, most of these actors are creators. Concept artist, engineer, sculpture, young bloomer, writer, ext. And they symbolize, for myself, humanity that keeps creating. They are the ink, cause everybody is the ink.
My first schoolproject from 2007 made at the Deltion college in Zwolle.
The theme was 'Me'. And in a way it is about me. But only parts of me... Does that make sense?
