Max Hattler

Well since we are on the experimental animation stuff, let's turn the flickering lamp on Max Hattler. This guy is making the rounds these days with his short film Nachtmaschine and his R.C.A. grad film that has been grabbing attention, Collision. You can download Max's films from his site. I also found this nice link while looking up his stuff from the Dotmov festival 2005. Here you can see not only Collision but some more cool experimental stuff that will get the brain fluid brewin'. I haven't had a chance to view them all but I do like Fu Pok Yan's, Echopraxia and Machine Molle's, Electronic Performers (which we attached the electrodes to here). If you follow the threads you can find all sorts of good stuff attached to Max. He worked on Free Jimmy which Amid @ Cartoon Brew writes a good review of here.
Imaginatio does a nice job of summerizing his work:
"As a filmmaker, Max is interested in the space between abstraction and figuration, where storytelling is freed from the constraints of traditional narrative. His work contemplates atmospheres, moments, microcosms : Close-ups as reflections on the big picture. While his films tend to be without dialogue, they seek to explore the relationship between sound, music and image."
Now I must go and you should go on a head on _______ with Max Hattler's work!
