Hot Velcro Action
A film by Michael Cantor
“Creating and filming velcro dots has been my singular obsession for the past two years. The dots are made by punching circles into fabrics and papers of various colors, patterns and textures and then adhering them to 1.5” velcro coins. I also draw, paint and even make miniature sculptures on individual dots. In all I have made over 6000 dots in about 350 varieties.” – Mike Cantor
After 15 years as a sculptural artist, Cantor bought his first digital camera and embarked into the world of stop-motion animation. Hot Velcro Action is Mike Cantor’s first short film.

The elements mold the landscape into an abstract beauty that goes beyond its own geological context. The soundtrack identifies with an invisible, virtual traveler and guides the spectator through a direct confrontation with the overwhelming nature and the destiny of its spare population.
