Quicksand and Quagmire films by Frank Zirbel

Posted in Artists, Artsyness on June 14th, 2016 by corpo

“In 2007 and 2008, as a commission from one of my art collectors, I deconstructed/reconstructed Pieter Bruegel’s 1557 engravings of “The Seven Deadly Sins/Vices.” as seven ink drawings. In 2008, a German cinematographer and friend, Mike Steffl, who had a poster collection of my drawings, sent me a sample DVD of proposed films of the drawings as a Christmas gift. He suggested that with his help we make them into short films. Nothing was started until January of 2013. By the end of the year we had seven films. The soundtrack was created in 2014. In April of 2015 post production work began and still continues.
Finally, two of the films are completed and have been uploaded to YouTube. Each film is a little over six minutes in length. The links are below. I’ve also attached scans of posters of the first two drawings for easy reference.
Eventually all seven films will be released on Blu-ray or streamed.

To more fully understand what’s going on please read the description/blurb that accompanies the films on YouTube.” – Frank Zirbel

This is awesome!
