Making of The Me Bird
This is a beautifully crafted piece by Brazilian studio, 18bis. It's based on a poem by Pablo Neruda and the technique of using layers of paper cutouts (or simulated cutouts) brings a fantastic depth and flowing movement. They've even done a short making-of video that's well worth looking at.
Here's what Gabriel Kempers of 18bis has to say about the piece;
"The short film "The Me Bird" is a free interpretation of the homonym poem by Pablo Neruda. The inspiration in the strata stencil technique helps conceptualize the repetition of layers as the past of our movements and actions. The frames depicted as jail and the past as a burden serve as the background for the story of a ballerina on a journey towards freedom.
A diversified artistic experimentation recreates the tempest that connects bird and dancer."
