Michael Langan (born 1984) is an American filmmaker who grew up in Alabama and studied at the Rhode Island School of Design. His 6-minute undergraduate thesis film Doxology (2007) has been screened at about hundred film festivals and garnered several awards. The word “doxology” means a “a hymn or form of words containing an ascription of praise to God”. Langan describes his film as an experimental comedy about tennis balls, dancing cars and God.
Doxology employs the pixilation technique and is made up of surreal sequences that do not have any definite and logical story-line. It can be interpreted in any number of ways.
