Time.com features Tobias Hutzler’s “Balance,” a short film inspired by Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque artist Maedir Eugster

Tobias Hutzler Balance.

Hot off the virtual presses: Style&Design, Time magazine’s culture spinoff, published an interview today with Tobias Hutzler about his new short film, Balance. The film centers on Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque artist Maedir Eugster, whose (literally) gripping performance involving a sculpture balanced on a feather captivated Tobias.

“Hutzler’s work often takes him to the deserts of the southwest United States, where he uses the landscape as a canvas. For the ‘Balance’ shoot, he aimed to create that atmosphere in a studio,” explains Time‘s Style&Design. “With the theatrics shorn away, the camera hones in on Eugster’s focus and tension as he creates a sculpture predicated on the balance of a single feather.”

Balance was produced by Prime Pictures and edited by Bunker Media. Camera and lighting were by B2Pro. Tobias extends a special thanks to Brent Langton and RED Digital Cinema Cameras.

Watch the film, and read the full piece, at style.time.com. Next week, we’ll take you behind the scenes of Balance, as Tobias explains how he conceptualized the project and shares production stills from his shoot.
