A town called panic.

a town called panic

In today’s lesson we looked a film called “a town called panic” It was directed byStéphane Aubier and Vincent Patar what was made in 2009.

The majority of the film was in stop motion while at the beginning and end it was in 2D. The film was with found objects. The movements of the characters and items are very jerky for example the objects the characters moving side to side when they are talking. The bases of the film   is silly with   the way the characters and events roll out. The film is   about   “Indian” and “cowboy” forgetting   horse’s birthday so with them trying to do a good gesture, it backs fire. At this stage the events escalate for example it gives a sense of a false solution at the beginning, where they hid the bricks by placing them all on the house but it backfires. The house is crushed. They try to move past this, by building a new house, but the efforts are wasted when it keeps getting stolen. Their primal need to find out why or who’s doing this, gets them caught up in life threating situations instead of letting it go.  The film ends in a full circle with it being the horse’s birthday again, yet again “Indianan” and cowboy trying to move horses present to him. This shows the passage of time.

The fact that the characters are named with what they are for example the horse named “ horse” the cowboy named “ cowboy “ and the Indianan named “ Indian” adds on the idea of the silliness of the film and  how it’s one giant joke. When they talk their mouths  or facial features don’t move.

Looking at  this film was  relevant to our current  project” elimination”  because the project  has to be a stop motion or found items, so looking at the movements, the backgrounds and how everything has been set out  is a good point of reference.
