Dix Pix

Kratki animirani film

Režija: Steven Fraser

Velika Britanija, 2019.

Trajanje: 4 min.

Dix Pix je kratki animirani dokumentarac koji sagledava gej muško/trans/ne binarno telo i zašto ljudi često šalju svoje gole slike preko aplikacija za upoznavanje. Dokumentarac ima eksperimentalni pristup u svom vizualnom stilu i bavi se temama muževnosti, queer ljudi, samoće i tela. Svi intervjui su urađeni preko gej aplikacije za upoznavanje Grindr i prikazuje seriju precrtaniih i animiranih slika penisa. Dobio sam dosta takvih slika preko aplikacija i upitao sam te ljude zašto ih šalju. Odgovori su bili interesantni, raznovrsni i prikazani su u ovom animiranom dokumentarcu Dix Pix.

Dix Pix

Short animated film

Director: Steven Fraser

UK, 2019

Duration: 4 min

Dix Pix is a short animated documentary that looks at the gay male/trans/non-binary body and why it is common for people to send naked pictures via dating apps. The documentary takes an experimental approach in its visual style and tackles themes of masculinity, queerness, solitude and the body. All interviews were conducted over the gay dating/hookup app Grindr and feature a series of redrawn and animated dick pics. I received the dick pics on the app and asked the sender why they sent the photos. The responses were interesting and diverse and are presented in the animated documentary Dix Pix.

I am an animator, writer and theatre-maker who creates short films and performances that are designed for adults who express neurodiverse behaviours, but can be enjoyed by anyone. I make inventive use of animation, puppetry and kinetic art to present unique and distinctive art. I identify as queer and take a queer perspective within my work.
