VIS Vienna Independent Shorts - Festival Trailer 2011

"Once again, Max Hattler knows exactly how to impress and to leave you thrilled and confused at the same time. It is deeply and truly fascinating how he transforms the abstract idea of 'new communities', the nucleus of this year's edition of the VIS festival, into a lively rhizomatic structure which resembles the digital appearance of virtual networks as well as early tv test pattern designs. Thus he covers the whole scope and concept of the festival in his own powerful and cutting-edge visual style." Daniel Ebner, Vienna Independent Shorts

"TRAILER 2011 – MAX HATTLER. Bombastic colour bar psychedelia! Es ist doch immer wieder erstaunlich, was der in Ulm geborene und in London lebende und arbeitende Animationskünstler Max Hattler aus einfachsten Mitteln – in diesem Fall digitale Videobalken und TV-Testbildmuster, unterlegt mit einem Dub-Step-Score – zu kreieren imstande ist. Hattler (*1976) studierte am Royal College of Art und unterrichtet am Goldsmiths College, tourt mit seinen Live-Performances durch Europa und fabriziert Tourvisuals für Bands wie Basement Jaxx und The Egg. Unser Artist in Residence 2011 gastierte auch mit mehreren seiner Filme sowie einer Auftragsperformance zur frühen Filmavantgarde bei VIS." Vienna Independent Shorts

"News in Pictures: Max Hattler has created the official festival trailer for the Vienna Independent Shorts festival, which will run from 26 May to 1 June." Design Week

"It's not so much a trailer, as it is a hallucinatory journey through a TV set" Partizan

"damn the style is back" philthysoftpretzls

"Max Hattlers außergewöhnlicher Trailer für VIS 2011"

"wickedly mesmerizing" Tracey Chan [Feature Friday interview with Max]

"I had the pleasure of screening some of Max Hattler's animations for Stomper in London and its great to see some of his new commissions. For The Vienna Independent Shorts Festival, Hattler uses digital video bars and test patterns to assiduously animate a dub-step score and creates a visual plethora of heavy weight bass. Always using simplistic and familiar graphics as a starting point, he employs the process of animation to create new imagery." Paula Naughton, Stomper

"It seems that Max Hattler has an aversion to sleep. How else can he keep cranking out quality projects at such a rate of knots – hmm, perhaps he's using clones made in the Hattlerizer?" Directors Notes
