  3. 3. THECRITERIONCOLLECTION BIOGRAPHY PLAY FILMS UTILITIES SUPPLEMENTS Stephen and Timothy Quay, identical twins, were born in Norristown, near Phil- adelphia, in 1947. After graduating in 1969 from the Philadelphia College of Art, where they studied illustration and graphics, they won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art, London. At the School of Film and Televi- sion they made their first short films (mostly lost), and met fellow student Keith Griffiths, who first collaborated with them on Noctur- na Artificialia (1979),funded by the BFI Pro- duction Board. Working together as Koninck Studios, with Griffiths producing, the Quays have maintained a steady output of surreal and fastidious puppet animation films, sup- plemented by design work for opera, theatre and ballet. To help finance their avant-garde projects they have also worked on TV com- mercials, channel identification footage, and numerous music videos, including the Stille Nacht series, and, less characteristically, Pe- ter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer. The Quays are renowned for their crafts- manlike methods and their unusual sources of inspiration. Apart from their puppets, which typically look like old dolls abused by many generations of children, they construct their own sets, arrange the lighting, and operate the cameras. The films draw heavily on twen- tieth-century European visual and literary culture, especially the surrealist and expres- sionist traditions represented by the Polish writer Bruno Schulz, the painter Max Ernst, and their fellow director of puppet films, the Czech Jan Svankmajer. As with Svankmajer, the Quays’ cinema is short on conventional narrative but long on enigmatic visuals; mu- sic usually plays a major part in creating a bizarre, sinister atmosphere.
