WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID
"Experimental animator Max Hattler uses the medium to see the potential for mixing different art forms into condensed forms of storytelling, and regards technique as being merely a tool for enabling that process to appear for the audience. His films often have a very different visual feel as a result, encouraged by his organic way of creating and producing work. Whilst films like Collision have a powerful undercurrent of rhetorical commentary about the War on Terror, Striper v.01 is happy to document a subject that to others might be immaterial, but to the observant Max Hattler is a thing of beauty and intrigue. Inspired by numerous cycling expeditions through London, weaving in and out of the busy city traffic, Max found himself looking closely at his immediate proximity. The streets are so plastered with signage, with primary colours competing against the texture of the road, exploded scale that causes fracturing of form and abstraction, not to mention conflicting and contrasting messages dictated by these glyphs. The urban topography of London provided Max with an interesting starting point, to only use what was already there and document the everyday, but re-packaging it to make the subject a thing of vibrancy and excitement rather than frustration and annoyance experienced by the rush hour crowd."
Andrew Selby 'Animation In Process' (Laurence King, 2009)

"Max Hattler's Striper v0.1 began life as a college project, based on experiences of day-to-day commuting ... [Max Hattler approaches] animation from a practical, theoretical and technical perspective that is shaped by a desire to speak to an audience through manipulations of sound and vision, shaped and informed by critical dialogue."
Andrew Selby 'Experimental Animation in a Post-Critical Age' (Common Ground, 2009)
