„What Is Art?” – Student short film by Stanley Ka Chun Chan (Sheridan College)

"What Is Art?"

„Here is my 4th year animation thesis film. Its an experimental animation (at least for me), inspired by the dialogues of the general public, where I ask them „What does art mean to you?…In 2 sentences.”

The goal of the film was to promote art, and I wanted to make it a collaborative art piece where artists/anybody could contribute their interpretation of „what art means” to them, making it a forever growing art piece. In my original pitch, I wanted to use original voice recordings of the people I’ve interviewed, and animate an interpretation of their dialogue. But due to time restraints, I experimented with my own interpretation of what art means to me” (Stanley Ka Chun Chan)
