11/10/10 Martha Colburn

In recent years I have expanded my technique to include the use of multi-plane glass animation, whereby you have three to five layers of artwork animated between sheets of glass.

With each new film, I construct a new ‘animating stand’ to use for the actual filming; rigging layers of glass for depth, a network of wires in the air, odd boxes made from shelving and mirrors and so on.
I work completely analog on 16mm and 35mm film and my special effects are not a computer-determined program. I hand paint the film after it is filmed , frame-by-frame or use special materials to create the desired effect.
