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

// Featured, Interviews


Continuing the second season of Intimate Animation – the Skwigly podcast in which we explore, discuss and interview the talents behind animation that deals with adult themes of love, relationships and sexuality – we welcome UK-based Italian artist/filmmaker Kim Noce of Mew Lab.

Since graduating from the NFTS with her 2005 animated documentary short After, Kim has gone on to direct eight independent shorts, seven commissioned films for the BBC, C4 and the BFI among others, as well as ten animation installations, including The Evening Her Mind Jumped Out of Her Head for Watford Borough Council.

Recently Kim was among several directors commissioned to direct Love in Idleness for the Shakespeare400 Still Shakespeare series. The films took inspiration from original research by Sally Barnden and were produced in partnership with London Shakespeare Centre, Film Club at Th1ng and Sherbet.

Love in Idleness 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.
