As the Earth rotates slowly, various forces of nature, mechanical movements, and human trajectories occur simultaneously.
She Collage is part response to the work of Southern California–based collage artist Terry Braunstein, part reflection on the practice of art-making. Like Braunstein's art, the film is itself a collage—in this case, frame-by-frame hand-manipulated images of Braunstein, paper cutout stopmotion animation, archival footage, and an assemblage of sounds.
Dream sequences created using 3D particle systems techniques. Behavior rules are applied to thousands of individual particles to model complex phenomena such as an explosion, a snowstorm, a tumultuous head, and a waterfall. A Connection Machine CM-2 computer was used to perform physical simulations on thousands of particles simultaneously, one processor for each particle.
Eddie, the grave digger, is haunted by the ghosts appearing on the walls in his home. the ghosts want revenge. Eddie didn't bury them well. So they tease, follow and scare him to death.
The idea for this part of the story started on a day when there was really heavy rain hitting the roof window at my old flat. I got out my binaural mics and put my head right up by the window with the big raindrops hitting all around. They made nice individual percussive noises, with great spatial positioning, so I decided to use them to seed a piece of music.

Nightmarish fusion of Francis Bacon and Gerald Scarfe in this perverse and disturbing game of spite and malice between three grotesque figures. A striking and unusual work by Łucja Mróz-Raynoch, a lesser known figure in the world of Polish animation.
A twisted and macabre film by Mróz-Raynoch, which explores an exhibition where the guests are as grotesque as the exhibits (stylistically akin to Gerald Scarfe’s horrifically distorted caricatures).
Using a 1945 Charlie Parker song, American indie animator, George Griffin greets us with a dizzying dance of torn Pop Art images. Shreds of consumer culture flash before us, swayed and absorbed by the tempo and power of Parker's horn.
