Animation: Gumms

Anton Bogaty’s new film is Gumms.  It’s not intended for young children – mature subject matter.  A cartoonist works for a bubblegum manufacturer making those little comic-strips that go inside the wrapper.  He’s looking for an idea.  Bogaty uses interesting techniques in his films.  He seems to edit them together almost as if he were just making a storyboard.  The drawing is deceptively simple.  The animation is minimal.  But it all adds up to some of the most interesting films being drawn.  Really nice troubling work.  This Bogaty is an artist.  I like him.
