BLA BLA

In this animated film meets picture book, you participate in the story.

BLA BLA explores the grammar of a new medium, using xerography, drawing on paper, ActionScript-generated animations, puppet stop-motion combined with real-time 3D mapping. As part of the creative process for BLA BLA, Vincent Morisset extensively researched interactive narrative to define a new grammar of non-linear editing. BLA BLA thus offers a new vision of communication in the wider sense, of how our natural behaviours and interactions with others play out in the world.

The web project was also adapted as an installation. It was presented at the Gaité Lyrique in Paris, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Cinekid Medialab in Amsterdam, Museum of Art of the Seoul National University, Montréal Créative exhibition, the Japan Media Arts Festival 2012 and Mutek.
