Woodcuts by Eric Kinny
Happy Fuji News
About





Happy Fuji News is a live-edited "movie" made out of 201 woodcuts, written, carved and printed by Eric Kinny over the course of 2016 - 2022

Prints are shown and thrown at the rhythm of an audio soundtrack with MIDI guitar music by Raphaël Desmarets and characters voices by McCloud Zicmuse, Siet Phorae, Molly Rex, Ma Clément, Alice Perez & Joey Wright, for a total length of 30min.

The story follows a touristic guide at the foothill of Japan's Mt. Fuji, escaping commercial hardship through the chance meeting of a Soundcloud ASMR artist.
With an equally comedic and dramatic approach, Happy Fuji News is a surrealistic dive into the world of apps, geology, tourism, love and more, done in a joyously performed proto-cinematic way.
