Today I was watching some of Jan Savnkmajor's animations, to understand his style a bit more. He animations has this nightmarish yet comedic atmosphere to it, showing that dark ideas can still be enjoyable. The Animations I have watched are Darkness/Light/Darkness and two scenes from Alice.
Darkness/Light/Darkness is about body parts coming together, at points it was scary but also funny. It was mostly how the timing of the animation was done.
The Alice scenes are quite different from each other. The Bonecreatures scene is very disturbing, seeing the different types of creatures out of bones and animal bodies, some don't even look like animals. However disturbing, the Bonecreatures are also at the same time interesting to gaze upon, because of the imagination the went into their design. While the beginning scene carries a mysterious atmosphere. Especially when Alice sees the rabbit making his way to wonderland. What also make both scenes unique to watch is when we see the lips of Alice when she says the name of the characters and hear her voice when she speaks for the characters. Jan Svankmajor's animations carries the theme of dark comedy but it works and are very enjoyable.
