Everyone knows, if someone from Kalamazoo asks you for something, you do it right away.
Lisa Santoro was making a film for school on color and wanted to interview someone at the studio.
The result is a polished, professional documentary -the kind you might see on a rainy weekend afternoon on public television.
I sound like an idiot -but sometimes don't sound completely drooling thanks to her kind editing.
The film features interviews with Leslie Harrington - a color strategist, Carl Minchew -the director of color technology at Benjamin Moore paints, Patricia Lynn Duffy -a communications expert and author and noted synesthete, Dr. David Krumholtz -an ophthalmologist with color blindness.
An interesting facet of this film is the level of professionalism achieved by one woman working on a student project. A contributing point of interest is the genre (or more properly -method of inquiry).
The documentary form is as diverse as the technique of animation. Today we are in the middle of a documentary explosion. Films of vastly divergent approaches, perspectives, subject matters and styles are all finding a degree of success. Compare that to the films using animation as a method of inquiry, and it's easy to see the paucity of fresh ideas coming from animation programs in The United States and Canada.
