1. More Parallax. This is the film that got me interested in this technique. Unfortunately they took the long version down. The longer version combines the 2.5d effect with an almost abstract narrative which I found compelling. It was almost like going into the mind of a classical painting. You could imagine that this is what the dream world of a the renaissance looked like, you see the beauty, perversion and horror in the paintings. I don’t normally see below the surface of this type of art, its normally just an image, and so if someone calls a classical painting perverse, I don’t see it. I feel that this film does allow you to feel the power and impact of these images. Imagine living in a society where there was hardly any imagery and then seeing a painting of Nymphs frolicking in the woods…
