Matthew Box is an watercolor artist who has created a skateboarding video by using his brushes to paint every single frame of some Jason Dill footage, according to a story in The Atlantic.
It’s an old animation technique called rotoscoping, but I didn’t know that at the time though. It’s essentially tracing over stills of footage. While I was experimenting with this technique I used different colors and really enjoyed how it had a psychedelic feel. That’s when I came up with the name Acid Drops for the project. It was a lot of painting but I’m kind of an amateur insomniac. It gave me something to do when I couldn’t sleep and it’s quite addictive seeing something you’ve painted come to life.
The short is called Acid Drops. For the rest of the interview, click the link.
