Art Film by ANTON SAKARA
Avant-Garde Out
About
Art film was created as a spin-off to an art work «Dynamic City» by Soviet-Russian avant-garde artist Gustav Klutsis made in 1919. Duration of 30 seconds, including soundtrack.

The main challenge was to create a natural zooming out from the figure of a man to 3d model of avant-garde composition. While the man's hight dimension is 5 ft the width of the "dynamic city" would be 3-4 miles. In this case I fine-tuned camera position to be infinitely remote so it would look like he is being filmed from the surface of the moon or another planet. While zooming out the figure becomes smaller untill it becomes tiny dot but never disappears. This shows the ideas laid down by first avant-garde artists of the beginning of the XX century that human is not only unique person, but at the same time active part of the whole thing that is way bigger than him. The giant avant-garde composition is showing contrast in scale comparing man's height and a city he is walking in. Playing with scale contrast is one of my favourite tools in art, it brings a feeling of infinite possibilities revealed by technologies to a human of the current century.

Gustav Klutsis (1895 — 1938) was a member of Artistic Association and Art School VHUTEMAS, he made considerable amount of outstanding works of art. Shot away with many other artists by Stalin in 1938.
