Dancing Crows - Video art - Tobias Gundorff Boesen

Tobias Gundorff Boesen, 'Birdcage - videostill', 2011

 Tobias Gundorff Boesen is an artist, animator and director, from Copenhagen, Denmark.
In 2011 Tobias entered a competition which assignment was to make a one-minutemovie around the theme - the notion of "place" - wether that might be interpreted as a geographical, an emotional space or a place of belonging.
Tobias Gundorff Boesen created 'Birdcage'.

Above you'll be able to see his amazing 'animatic' or 'moving storyboard'. A sublime preparation for an undertaking with lots of choreography. It must have been great to have been working with Tobias in such a professional way.

Shown below is the final result of Tobias G. Boesen's 'Birdcage' that has turned out absolutely stunning. 
The movements of the dancers aswell as the timing of the shots are perfectly synchronised with the music ( by Efterklang ).
The location is amazing, the thin white trees remind of the bars of a birdcage.
And the colours; white of the surrounding, black of the amazing costumes ( by Sandra Møller Svendsen ) and red of the raw meat, are very tasteful composed in every shot.
'Birdcage' is Beautiful in every detail.
