And this is the story of Jackson Pollock, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, in this beautifully animated French short film entitled Dripped by director Léo Verrier.

Keeping a visual diary

May 25, 2011 § Leave a comment

I have tried to keep track of my thoughts and write them down in a diary, but I never quite managed to keep it updated more than a couple of weeks. That’s why I got so ‘jealous’ and fascinated by Brooklyn-based designer and filmmaker Joe Hollier‘s  visual diary. My visual diary is a beautifully narrated stop-motion film, that captures a month in Joe’s life.
