Piotr Dumala - Crime & Punishment (2000)
"Dumala completed his half-hour film of Crime and Punishment (Zbrodnia i Kara) in 2000, after three years of work. He has a unique method: He takes a white plaster panel and coats the surface with glue. He then paints over it with a dark color and lets it dry. He uses a knife and sandpaper to engrave his image, creating a hatching effect that gives it a feeling of texture. To add darkness to a light area, he adds more paint with a brush.
"It’s a form of 'destructive animation.' Each image exists only long enough to be photographed and then painted over to create a sense of movement."
