Intimate Animation: Kim Noce (‘Love in Idleness’) Podcast

Presenting the second episode of ‘Intimate Animation’ season 2, brought to you by the online animation magazine skwigly.com
Join Skwigly’s Ben Mitchell and Laura-Beth Cowley as they explore, discuss and interview the talents behind animation that deals with adult themes of love, relationships and sexuality.
In this episode we welcome Kim Noce of Mew Lab to the podcast, whose latest film ‘Love in Idleness’ was commissioned for Still Shakespeare, an exciting new series of experimental animation commissions, inspired by original research by Sally Barnden and produced in partnership with the London Shakespeare Centre at King’s College London and animation companies Film Club at Th1ng and Sherbet. The film ideas were developed during workshops supported by the Cultural Institute at King’s College London.
‘Love in Idleness’ it is a short animated film exploring the fleeting delusional love relationship between Titania and Bottom.The film focuses on the transformation and transfiguration of the two characters in the act of a frantic lovemaking. Scratchy animated lines, morphed body parts, fragments of flesh intersect and crash together into the crude rhythmical act performed by the deluded donkey and the tricked woman. There is no story, no time and no roles: only raw emotions and sensations.
