Becky & Joe: Tallest Heights

The excellent Becky Sloan & Joseph Pelling are back! This time they've directed a short animated piece as part of the 'Hello, Again' series presented by the Lincoln Motor Company, in which film-makers are asked to re-imagine the familiar into something new.

Inspired by the drawn-on film pieces by Norman McLaren, Len Lye and Man Ray, Becky & Joe collaborated with musicians Delicate Steve to create 'Tallest Heights'. The animation was made from a combination of ink, paint, bleach and scratching into the film itself. The final images are high-res scans of super 8, 16mm and 35mm film strips and acetate sheets. Watch the making of also posted below for further insight into the process.
