sneak preview

...of a BETHMUTH™ production
brought to you by BETHMUTH™ studios...
These are just a few shots from our day of shooting, which included 3 tapes filming non stop drawing action. The drawing will look mega fast and hopefully amazing when cut down into 5 minutes, Muthy and me enjoyed it a lot (apart from the aching arms and dying pens). When edited and finished we hope you will like it too.
But for now, have a look at these images and...

As we said it would finally, we are putting it all together to make a truely spectacular and delightful individual vision by me and the Muth. I'm truely excited but also cacking it in case certain teachers proper slate it D: bad times if that does happen.

Until its watched and marked we shall never know and we will just have fun with it to the end.
Til then i suppose......

So what now?

BETHMUTH presents

coming to your viewing pleasure soon...

In film, me and the Demuth are planning on making a unique animation piece consisting of a documentation of us and our crazy little drawings. The film will capture us both drawing our creatures that we draw daily... normally in English :D... but we will edit the piece and compress the time to show the development of a large scale progression into a 5 minute span time.
We will be using a portion of blank white space hopefully in the Gallery, where we will place a large piece of paper where we will draw these creatures and such. Danny has put this idea on to "flickr" and the art teachers are well up for it and think its a good idea for our Year 13 end of year show. So we'd be killing 2 birds with 1 stone.

...this is something how it will look hopefully... but obviously ours will kick this ones ass 10 times over. So watch this space, and hopefully the film teachers will like our idea ^_^. Fingers crossed.

to anyone doing burton

i found a Mark Kermode interview with him a while back in the researching stage, and i'm finally going through it all :D
thought it would be useful for people focusing on Tim

"Tim Burton
The legend of Sleepy Hollow Hammer films Shooting Sleepy Hollow Burton's reputation as an outsider Animation" . . . . . -that sums it up, and what it includes :D

[this annotated catalogue is looming over me, and i'm now scared haha!]

Horror stuff :)

i found some stuff about horror themes that run through films, knowing i am looking into horror influences and such.

"There are a number of traits a film must exhibit in order to be classified as a horror movie. The most important traits are: the intention to scare the audience, is the building and eventual release of suspense, a dark, oppressive, or dreamlike quality, and the inclusion of a supernatural or highly unusual element. It is the intention of the horror genre to inspire fear combined with the use of suspense that are integral to the viewing enjoyment of a horror movie. These two features evoke a physical response in the viewer: the pulse rate rises, the palms become sweaty, there is a small release of adrenaline. The viewer not only has a mental response but also a physical one. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari was the first horror film to set the trend for horror movies to come."

theres some more stuff about gore in movies but i found this bit about horror which was good as i did't have much about horror and i was a bit worried


and everyone keeps mentioning dr. caligari is an influence to tim burton and the whole german expressionism too so i'll have to borrow that from a teacher obviously hehe.

and just from this image, i can see why it has influenced him :D

yay im getting somewhere.
