Ballet Rotoscope, the short film that mix together dance and animation

Ballet Rotoscope, il cortometraggio che lega danza e animazione | Collater.al 1

Born out of the collaboration between Japanese artists, researchers and designers Masahiko Sato + EUPHRATES, Ballet Rotoscope is an experimental short film that sees a dancer dance in an empty room surrounded only by her own movements.
Rotoscoping, the animation technique invented by Max Fleischer in 1905, is mainly used to create cartoons in which human figures are realistic.

The idea of the collective was to get out of the realistic dimension to get into the abstract one.
The lines, in fact, follow precisely the specific movements of the dancer but they do so also independently, without always remaining glued to her body.

The experiment aims to demonstrate how live-action and animation can coexist even separately, creating a new incredible source of beauty.
