True Colors

4 months. 5,000 photos. No digital effects. Take a gander at stop-motion done unbelievably awesome.

This film, full of color, reminded me of an excerpt from a lovely teacher who I recently I took a workshop with, Lorin Roche.

Celebrating the Doors of Perception, Lorin Roche, Ph.D.

“I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don’t notice it,” says Shug in Alice Walker’s The Color Purple. God wants to “share a good thing.” Scientists who study human vision say we have been given a great capacity to share in God’s good thing – our eyes are capable of distinguishing about ten million different colors. If that is true, then our eyes can perceive hundreds of thousands of different hues just of the color purple. We can walk through fields and see subtly different colors every day for a lifetime. To me, this is a great miracle and mystery – that we can perceive the beauty of the world through our senses.

This will make you smile a little smile

“Your secret” is a movie about you.

Something quite different as compared to Jean-Sebastien Monzani’s other works, this short movie evokes a complicity between the spectator and the narrator. Something cheerful, something mysterious, something simple, something that hopefully maybe brightens your day.

Hope you like it.
