Victor Faccinto, To Hell and Back

To Hell and Back (2010 | 13 minutes | COLOR | SOUND)

To Hell and Back is a visual journey through the levels of Hell following the trials and revelations experienced by the film’s central character, Video Vic. The story line fuses multiple themes including sex, humor and violence.

The filmmaker constructed 3-D background sets and hand-altered, anatomically correct Barbie dolls that interact with live actors.

In pioneer film animator Max Fleisher’s Out of the Inkwell series (c. 1920), an animated cartoon character jumps out of a jar of ink and into a live action film set to cause havoc on the cartoonist’s draing board and surroundings. Hell and Back reverses this process as live characters interact directly with animated dolls in an animated environment.

Victor Faccinto, Nightmare

Nightmare (2009 | 7.35 minutes | COLOR | SOUND)

After 30 years in suspended animation, Video Vic returned to the screen in this digital video animated adventure. Waking up abruptly, he finds himself the captive patient of a couple of Barbie doll nurses preparing him for a “nightmare” operation. The film combines traditional and digital animation techniques, merging live actors with animated dolls. The original Video Vic character was featured in Faccinto’s 16mm animated films completed in the early 1970s.
