Holy Flying Circus
Jim Le Fevre has created the title sequence and a series of animations for Holy Flying Circus, a fantastical re-imagining of the controversy surrounding the release of the Monty Python film Life Of Brian.
Inspired by Terry Gilliam’s unique guerilla approach to animation, the title sequence is - literally - a towering tribute to the off-beat comic genius of the Pythons, featuring a 2-metre tall construction of wooden discs and tubes built on a revolving base. Fixed to each of the ten layers are sequences of still images, which, when rotated at 33rpm (no mean feat with something that big!) animate to show looped scenes and pastiches of the time Life of Brian was released.
