Student Short Spotlight program - Relentless Melt
Relentless Melt presents a program of fresh abstract and experimental animations from Hong Kong. The films were directed and animated by undergraduate students from the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong in the class of German abstract animation artist Max Hattler. All films were produced ‘at home’ under Zoom online teaching conditions during Hong Kong's Covid-induced semi-lockdown. Many of the animations are collaborations with London-based music producer Lux Prima, while one works with the track Strix Aluco by Anglo-Danish electronica duo Isan (You can get a taste of it on Morr Music youtube channel https://youtu.be/uEjgyeg5Zbo).
Relentless Melt is a Hong Kong-based society for abstract and experimental moving image. It holds regular screenings in Hong Kong and internationally, most recently at Iso Film Fest, FILMASIA Festival and Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film (ITFS). Relentless Melt is also the production company behind Max Hattler’s Annecy-award winning architectural animation Serial Parallels. www.relentlessmelt.com
