Remedios Varo

For stop motion 2 this year were animating a painting by para-surrealist  Remedios Varo. I’m a member of the special FX team and were going to emulate a smoke effect in the window probably using ink and water. The scene will include a puppet and a lot of interesting camera moves for the perspective shift. Varo’s work definitely utilizes a lot of surreal like elements but I can’t help notice how their seems to be a lot of mystical/scientific themes in a lot her paintings. There appear to be several astronomical references to the cosmos above. Check out some work here.
