1923 aka Heaven + 1925 aka Hell won the Animate OPEN: Digitalis Audience Prize at animateprojects.org in 2011.
1923 aka Heaven is one of two animation loops directed by Max Hattler, inspired by the work of French outsider artist Augustin Lesage. 1923 is based on Lesage’s painting ‘A symbolic Composition of the Spiritual World’ from 1923.
The second loop, 1925 aka Hell, is based on Lesage’s painting ‘A symbolic Composition of the Spiritual World’ from 1925. It lives here: http://vimeo.com/maxhattler/1925
The films were created during 5 days in February 2010 with students at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark.
