1 Seconde is a study of video animation and an exploration of the endless possibilities in a short span of time.
“When he shot Une seconde (4 min., 20 sec.), a video animation without computer graphics, Richard Angers tried to adapt Norman McLaren’s animation techniques to video shooting and editing. A long-term solitary task, in which images are moved by hand, centimetre by centimetre, in which one plays with the number of images per second, and in which the pure quest for effects is more important than the message”.
