CG characters invade Tate Britain
In an attempt to liven up the art history museum Jack Sachs has created an animated film tour of the Tate Britain, where his brilliantly bizarre, plasticine-like CG characters move around the gallery amid the art. SHHH! features animated creatures invading motion-tracked footage of the gallery’s interior space.
Admittedly, the museum “can feel a bit austere and inaccessible to people with less of an interest in art history,” says Jack. He was asked to create a piece that would engage young people with the Tate Britain and created a fun and accessible film for “all sorts of people”.
You can see a giant floating head, a dancing inflatable tube guy and a wobbly pencil as they slowly make their way around the gallery, while happy Brussels sprouts pour out of a painting. The soundtrack was masterfully created by sound studio Father, Samantha Rubinstein was director of photography and Blinkink Studio supported the making of the film.
