Quentin Jone's style of work is really distinctive. She works mostly with stop-motion for fashion film. The videos are playful and lighthearted. She adds fantasy into them via both digital and manual manipulation. The combination of these manipulation is successful because of the texture from analog method in contrast with digital collage. I think that her use of paper is amazing, not only it can be a good transition for each shot but also remind the audience how the work has been put together. There's no particular message I get from watching his films, but I certainly enjoyed all of them because of the unexpected element. I could never tell what's going to happen next to the model or what's going to come out in the background. For my own work, I need to consistently have the audience expect the unexpected to keep their attention because I don't have a deep meaningful message behind it. I just wanted to explore the process of making stop-motion manually under the theme of surrealism.
I noticed how Jones uses colorful texture or prop in contrast with black background to really bring attention to the figure in the middle. She also uses paper to create texture via folding,, crumpling, and tearing. Most importantly, the model needs to interact with the added prop to connect all the elements in the film together.
