ARTNANO:  Trailer from Runa’s Spell (Clip)
Running Time:
00:03:30
Runa’s Spell conveys a moment of connectedness with the sensual persuasions of an imaginary world. Image and music interact in a dramatic way to deepen and enhance the perception of enchantment and longing. The visuals consist of digitally interwoven and layered animated hand-paintings on 35mm film stock, animated objects and cutouts, and pixilation of live creatures. The music attempts to create a spiritual sense of journey through the fractional evocation of ancient Egyptian folk song. The sonorous texture of trembling and contorted images illustrate the hesitation, solitude, and endless dreamscape of the human mind.
