Paint Showers is beautiful animated short directed and animated by LA-based Miguel Jiron. Filmed back in 2011, the piece was made by photographing sequences of paint drips and splashes which were then set to sounds of rain creating an otherworldly thunderstorm of paint.

“…Pays homage to the cameraless painted films of experimental legends like Stan Brakhage and Oskar Fischinger… the striking nature of the visuals alone engenders a unique emotional resonance.” — Film International

Swirling cosmos of paint give way to a storm of color and drips. An experimental animation that is a mix of paint on glass and stop motion, Paint Showers is the anticipation, fury, and release of a colorful storm.
