Black Ice

Ever since I first saw some of Stan Brakhage's films I've found them to be incredibly inspiring in all aspects of my work. For one of my final papers, I wrote an essay on his hand-painted films, which this is one of. I spent hours in the library in my school watching all of these films carefully, analyzing them for any differences and decoding his thoughts and techniques- it was a truly great way to spend a couple of weeks. The quality is pretty awful on this video, but there is a still enough visible to give you an idea of the beauty and the rhythms he created by painting directly onto the film.
