Animation and Live-Action Combine in a Black-and-White Dream

Kurtis Hough combines live-action and animation in his short 15-minute black-and-white film “To See More Light” which was inspired by Hawaii’s active volcanos.

Hough tells The Creators Project, “It felt like an interesting contrast to make a picture about life and growth which lava represents. After discussing with [composer Colin Stetson], the concept quickly grew into a 15-minute piece based on his recording of the same name. Over the next two years I continued shaping and refining this concept, adding dreamlike imagery (which I often think of as colorless), and philosophizing with the words of Leonard Cohen.”
