The Meta-Narrative of Animation

Like all great magical acts, it begins with a spark. The initial strike. The flash in the blue. The moment of epiphany. An idea is born. Is borne.  Shot-1

The initiator then confides in the sorcerer. An idea that was born needs to germinate. A sorcerer is the omniscient enabler. S/he adopts the idea. Gives it a home. Gives it a conducive environment. The sorcerer protects the idea. And then takes it to the magic garden.

The magic garden is where the idea germinates. A form is created out of the idea. A motif. A condition. The concept is born.

Then the gnomes talk in funny voices. The voice over is decided. Graphics are drawn. Characters sketched. Personality infused. Dimensions developed. And then the magic happens. Life is inducted. Life is inspired. Life is given. Animation.

Animator-in-focus: Jan Svankmajer

Just like his category fluid films, Jan Svankmajer refuses to be pigeon holed as a one kind of filmmaker.

“Animators tend to construct a closed world for themselves, like pigeon fanciers or rabbit breeders.” Svankmajer stated in an interview, “I never call myself an animated filmmaker because I am interested not in animation techniques or creating a complete illusion, but in bringing life to everyday objects.”

Born in Prague in 1934, he uses live-action, puppets, collage, drawn animation, montage, clay and object stop-motion animation that mingles together in harmony and conflict. Objects that are often shaded in obscurity takes up the centre-stage of meaning and relevance. Dreams breakdown and reality escapes in muffled scream of sudden realisation and perpetual motion.

Svankmajer brings to life all the ordinary corners of the domesticity and the inner recesses of the human mind. He defies world and creates stunning universes of experience.
