The Double-Blind Experiments is a collective of VFX artists and motion designers with diverse creative backgrounds including visual effects, animation, filmmaking, photography, illustration and graphic design. This second experiment is a collaboration between 15 artists and 3 sound designers and follows the success of Double-Blind No.1; an experimental short which gained international traction and was screened at over 60 film festivals, winning over 20 awards.
The sound designers created a bed of eclectic sound and composition which was then cut into clips of varying lengths before being randomly distributed to the artists.
For the artists, this experiment consisted of only two rules:
1. Take inspiration from the randomly supplied sound clip.
2. Create a visual representation of this sound, beginning and ending with a circle of a predetermined size... fill the space between two circles.
