ME: NY native, DP/Cinematographer, film freak, and lover of women. Entered the life of fandom for Tamela & True Blood; staying for The Walking Dead, GoT, Hannibal & whatever other glorious shows/ships come my way.
When my favorite shows are on hiatus, I blog my random interests, most of which will involve sci-fi films, obscure cinephile shit, fashion, beautiful ladies, and whatever the fuck else. I also like to make gifs.
My Love (Moya Lyubov) is a paint-on-glass-animated 2006 short film directed by Aleksandr Petrov and based on Ivan Shmelyov’s 1927 A Love Story (Istoriya Lyubovnaya). It takes place in the 19th century Russia and tells the story of the sixteen-year-old boy Anton who is torn apart by his feelings for a pure and gentle girl and a femme fatale. Watch it here.
Paint-on-glass animation is a technique for making animated films by manipulating slow-drying oil paints on sheets of glass. Aleksandr Petrov is the most well-known practitioner of this technique; he has used it in seven films, all of which have won numerous awards.
