The Train Ride
This animation was created while I was studying in Paris. I was inspired by the impressionist paintings at the Musée d’Orsay and wanted to create a moving painting. I wanted to see the people and settings of these paintings together in the same context of a train ride. Just like impressionism, early film history has origins in Paris. I was also looking at Georges Melies and the Lumiere Brothers, the latter created one of the first films “L’Arrivée d’un train en gare de La Ciotat” which also focused on the subject of a train.
