Duration: 7:45 min.
Description: “Homesite” is a short process-based poetic animation. The project aims to explore the directors’ privacy and communal space via different approaches, methods and formats and to investigate the drive to action/reaction or non-reaction when triggered by an object/item/image. The film is about meeting point/s between each director’s personal experience: fragments of childhood memories merging with the process of remembering, the memory retrieval. The animation techniques used vary between drawing on paper, drawing on transparency sheets , 2D digital animation, rotoscope over stop-motion and video footage. These treatments are used as tools to expand the directors’ investigation.
