Experimental abstract machinima inspired by the work of Oskar Fischinger, Hans Richter, Stan Brakhage. “9” is an abstract film which plays with the contrast of circles and lines appearing and disappearing as if in a dream. The effect being somewhat hypnotic and dreamlike. And although “9” is short, it seems much longer because of this effect. Much like the early Modernist experiments with geometric shapes and colors, “9” is unique to machinima. Directed, filmed and edited by C.-D. Schulz Animation by C.-D. Schulz and Martin Guertner Music by Boards of Canada.
