"Living Skinless,"directed by Rod Sanchez, is a live cinema experience where the
audio and visuals of the movie on screen will be performed live. The experience of the
film, "Living Skinless," takes place between a pre-recorded narrative and a
live performance. "Living Skinless," becomes a digitally animated live film that
transforms traditional movie theatre cinema into a three dimensional sensory
experience. Rod's intention with this film is to evolve the traditional cinema event
from an experience on the screen into an experience that can occur in a three
dimensional sensory space. The live components of the film will not only place the
film within the same three-dimensional realm as the audience, but will also create
room for a dialogue to occur between the film and the performance.
The film "Living Skinless" creates a surreal reality combining 2D & 3D computer
generated imagery and animation composited with live action sequences, and
paint to depict the internal state of being for a painter as his painting is unfolding
in the outside world.
