Brain Wave: One Drawing Drawn 1,440 Times


By The Denver Egotist / /

This one-minute film took nearly 7 months to complete from the first hand-drawn frame to the final sound edit. With no formal storyboards to follow, Jake Fried intuits his films, letting them “become themselves through the process of making,” Fried says. “I try to let the work tell me what’s next.” His process is simple: draw an image with ink and white-out (and sometimes gouache, collage and coffee), scan the image into Adobe Photoshop, repeat, repeat, repeat and repeat. After all of the images are scanned, they are sequenced at 24 frames per second, and Fried himself then carefully composes the audio track.
