Ian Helliwell retrospective of direct animation


Brighton`s own Ian Helliwell, artist-filmmaker-musician, presents for the first time a retrospective of his direct animation. Having begun intuitively at the start of the 1990s, he has experimented with a range of techniques for creating images directly on super 8 film. His work is distinctive, if not unique in that he also designs and builds his own electronic instruments — Hellitrons and Hellisizers — which he uses to make all the soundtracks. For anyone interested in colour, light and animation and the synthesis of film and music, this programme promises to be both an eye and an ear opener.
