KP PRIZE 2019

Still from 'Inrejse', by David Ramirez Gomez.

The KP Prize jury members consists this year of Jesper Rasmussen, Jens Erik Sørensen and Chairman of KP Lisbeth Bachman. They reviewed all works at KP19, and that the choise fell on 'Inrejse' could be motivated as follows:

The video is fresh and playful in its use of animation, which is almost a kind of 3D animation where the drawings move like paper objects in space.
The animated characters are drawn as coarse, caricatured and unsightly characters, while being almost graceful in their animated movements.
The combination of animation and real-life shootings mimics the classic use of artificial rear projection in car scenes in old films.
In addition, 'Inrejse' includes dramatically light and shadow effects and the cutting is dynamic and powerful.
