Proposed Project

Title (required)

Character Studies: Femmes Fatales (working title)

Applicant’s Role in Production (required)

Art Direction, Conceptual Design, Creation of all 3D assets, Visual effects programming

Production Format

Interactive Software, Realtime 3D

Proposed Running Time

non-linear

Brief Project Description1 (required, max 500 words)

Character Studies: Femmes Fatales is a series of realtime 3d compositions borrowing from the traditions of painting and video games. The subjects of these animated portraits are women from Greek and Hebrew mythology given a contemporary presentation. The goals of the project are to explore the possibilities of using games technology for making interactive art outside of the gaming context, to parallel and contrast what is considered beautiful in both art and games, and to question the violent content of popular action games through re-tellings of traditional stories of cultural significance which also contain violence. The result will be a playable mini game with no goals, a narrative without words, featuring women without fear.

Project Narrative2 (max 1500 words)

Research Project

Creating a 3d world is a lot of work. I have been creating worlds with my partner for over 5 years. The technology changes constantly, improvements in technology can be used to heighten realism. My main area of exploration is always in the realm of visual effects. To create something visually amazing and meaningful.

Not sure which woman/women I will choose but most likely it will be in a series of 3. Possibly each a separate portrait or maybe a group of 3.

Portraits of mythical women
Lamia, Medusa, Lilith
woman with/as snakes. lovers of Zeus (Adam) who were punished by turning them from beautiful women into monsters. Victims of jealousy.

beheadings---
Salome, Judith, Yael(, Delilah (hair))

betrayals--
Medea, Claetemnestra, Eve
misunderstood prophets--
Cassandra, Delphic Oracle

3’s
Moirae(fates), Erinyes(furies), Graeae(gray ones)

creatures
Siren, Sphinx, Harpy

pathetic women--
Ophelia, Persephone, Daphne

To connect game art with more traditional art. To push the boundaries of what a game “should” be. To show powerful women who reached a point of no return. To take death and killing seriously. Frustration with action game killing. A response. The acts of violence not shown or acted out by the player but rather seen in its aftermath or the woman in contemplation of the deed. Much like in painting.

Artist Statement3

Aritst Statement (max 1500 words)

Annoyance with games being always about the same thing. Frustration with violence. Fighting for the presence of art in video games. Trying to offer alternatives in the commercial sphere and not stay in the “art ghetto” providing artistic experiences for the wider game culture. The endless debate around “are games art” You will have art when artists are using the technology and making games with a vision not based on consumerism and prurient escapism.
Original stories created through retelling. As all stories are retold and re-interpreted for new generations. A duty to keep the lessons in the stories alive.
