Giger Revealed Documentary DVD H.R. Giger NTSC EDITION
NORMALLY ONLY AVAILABLE IN PAL FORMAT, THIS SPECIAL NTSC EDITION IS AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH MONSTERS IN MOTION!
The documentary director David N. Jahn started working as an assistant at Giger's atelier in Zürich in 2000. After he returned back to Prague, Jahn offered Giger to produce a DVD that would map his work and current life. The shooting took place at Giger's studio in Zürich and in Gruyéres where the H.R. Giger Museum and bar are located. In Vienna, they managed to film an interview with the Austrian fantastic artist Ernst Fuchs. In New York, the film-makers encountered Debbie Harry (Blondie) for whom Giger produced an album cover and two music videos. At the vernissages in Paris and Prague, they recorded an array of interviews with other personalities of the artistic and cultural world that also appear in the film. Even though the authors don't avoid the particular developmental periods of Giger's work, the main purpose was not to create the artist's biography. In this case, it is more likely considered to be an authentic perspective on the peculiar world of this Swiss artist.
The second part of the H.R. Giger DVD - Art in Motion - is a real adventure for all Giger fans. All those who have met Giger's art in books or at exhibitions know what we are talking about. Surrealistic paintings often hide dimensions which the viewer becomes aware of after a while and sometimes very unexpectedly. It is the first time you will be able to see Giger's paintings processed digitally in high resolution quality, 3D animated and together with original film music and surround sound. Watch ten moving image collages (including Erotomechanics) where we used over 200 diapositives which cover the most important periods of his work. Each of those collages will be presented in an abstract story, which will tell us more about Giger´s life and artistic work.
The third bonus part contains various hard-to-get short Giger movies - High and Heimkiller, Second Celebration of the Four and many more.
