Béatrice Coron's Daily Battles
World Premiere at TED
Directed by James Stewart
Award-winning 3D director James Stewart, founder of Geneva Film Co., presented the world premiere of his animated 3D short film Béatrice Coron's Daily Battles
at the renowned TED Conference in Long Beach, California on February 26, 2013. Stewart and celebrated New York City artist Béatrice Coron, both veterans of TED, attended the premiere.
A trailblazer in leveraging the immersive power of 3D storytelling, Canada's James Stewart brings a new dimension to Béatrice Coron's breathtaking, 61-panel papercut masterwork of medieval life. An art film about a work of art, Béatrice Coron's Daily Battles
tells its story in an abstract montage created in Stereoscopic 3D. With each medieval scene, we enter a tale of struggle, battle and trickery representing the challenges of life.
Using animation, sound, light and shadows, and a sprinkling of humour, Stewart renders each scene of Coron's 2D cutouts in true 3D splendor, depicting a new aspect of the medieval world.
