YOUTH IN REVOLT

by PETER SLUSZKA

Peter Sluszka directed the animation sequences for Miguel Arteta’s major motion picture Youth in Revolt: The Journals of Nick Twisp starring actor Michael Cera. Peter worked closely with the director and the star to create the animation used in the opening title sequence and the end credits. Sluszka also directed Cera in a pixelation sequence that follows his character, Nick, and his friend, Vijay, on a road trip, as well as a scene with Nick seen hallucinating a lovemaking couple as they float off the pages of an instructional book. Live action, stop motion, claymation and pixilation were just some of the techniques Peter used for this project.
