We worked closely with the visual artist Shirazeh Houshiary to produce the animated film Veil.
We produced the original version of Veil with Houshiary for the stage production Amu, Amu premiered at London's Sadlers Wells Theatre before touring worldwide.
Following the premiere of Amu, Houshiary wished to develop the animation further to create an independent animated film installation.
Two of Houshiary's paintings form the basis of the arts animation Veil, the paintings brought together for the piece with narrative through animation. The animated film explores the idea of absence and presence; inspired by the Veil of St. Veronica by Spanish painter Francisco de Zubaran (c.1635). Veil explores the relationship between image and image-less in an attempt to reveal the hidden and invisible, with an emergence of the elusive and evasive.
The 3D animation for Houshiary’s Veil was created using Autodesk Maya, the film was rendered using Mental Ray, textures were created in Adobe Photoshop, compositing and editing was completed in Adobe After Effects.
Houshiary’s film Veil was first exhibited (press release) as part of Houshiary's exhibition at the Lehmann Maupin Gallery in New York City between 18th February and 25th March 2006.
