"Some of these films started from the love of film and the greedy desire to fill every frame with as much color and shape as possible." - Jeff Scher (1976-99) 


Jeff Scher is a New York-based filmmaker, animator and painter.
As an underground filmmaker, Scher uses lights, abstractions and visual effects all paired with music to create experimental short films. His films have been described as animated still life as they are made from various drawings in which the images change to trigger responses within the human mind. He uses his paintings and collages by overlapping the colors and textures to seem as if they are in fact “moving” in a hypnotic fashion. (Wikipedia)
