Marina Antunes [Film Festival 01.26.10] movie trailer news

The visual album. A dying breed of a thing that’s going the way of the CD. The last one I saw was Daft Punk’s Electroma a gorgeous film that I thoroughly enjoyed and down right love, even if I’m not a huge fan of the music. I expect that Animal Collective’s ODDSAC which is premiering at Sundance, isn’t going to be the same pleasant experience.

Directed by Danny Perez, this is going to be a trip of a film, if you can even call it a film. I’m more inclined to call this an experience. Here’s the official scoop:

Animal Collective’s music is a glittering mix of pop rock, experimental noise, and horror-movie soundtrack. Perez’s visuals mirror that, incorporating intense scenes of vampires, campfires, and screaming prophets to form themes and a distinct vision, rather than following a traditional plot and dialogue. The characters are interlaced with flicker effects that mimic pressure phosphenes, the magic colors produced by rubbing your closed eyes. A true physical experience, ODDSAC turns the theatre into a sensory submarine.

This trailer manages to capture those words in 26 seconds. I’m both a little distraught and oddly attracted. Can not wait to see this.
