1999 | Animation: Hand-Drawn, 3D and Video

Two Minutes on a Subway Train was created by combining traditional hand-drawn animation methods, video composition and 3D animation in order to create a visual field that was unlike the signature of any of the three individually. Viewers watch as the journey of a man unfolds, but they watch this journey through the projection of his psychology onto the physical realm.

Two Minutes on a Subway Train is distributed by Blackchair Productions / Microcinema Inc. of San Francisco as part the All Experimental 1999 Collection. It has enjoyed over 50 international screenings, notably: Animac99 in Barcelona, the Bangkok Experimental Film Festival, Enter Multimediale in Prague and the Center of Contemporary Art in Seattle.
