OFFF Quebec 2015 by Jean-Paul Frenay

an experimental film in no language

They say you should observe a piece of art deeply to understand its concept and interpret it in your own way, we think that Jean-Paul Frenay took this idea and twisted it into something even bigger than just an interpretation. He made sure to create an introspective “sarcastic” adventure.

We were so astonished when we received this and proud to present to you a visual piece communicating social behaviors in different sceneries that will put you into a hypnotic experience.

cosmos - a microfilm (extended version)

an experimental film in no language

The Extended Version of João Paulo Simões's microfilm 'cosmos'.
From the generic theme of poverty, the director conceived a cinematic take on social exclusion which suggests the outlines of a more personal drama - part gritty observation, part poetic celebration of motherhood.

Light Motif is conceived as a synaesthetic experience based on a visual transposition of Music for 18 Musicians – Section II, by the American composer Steve Reich. The ambition of the film is to cinematically capture the extraordinary life force that animates this essential work of contemporary music by offering a truly hypnotic experience where music can be “seen”.
The inspiration for the project stems from the relationship between music and the visual arts, illustrated by artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Oskar Fischinger, Norman McLaren or John Whitney. These works try to establish precise connections between sounds, shapes, colors and movements, to visually translate the concepts of rhythm, melody, harmony, pitch, timbre and intensity. Light Motif proposes applying the construction principles of Steve Reich’s compositions to visual language.
Rigorously architected, his compositions are based on the repetition of short melodic patterns subjected to the gradual processes of dephasing, lengthening pattern, rhythmic saturation and tonal changes. The result of these subtle variations in the repetitions is a sound texture in constant transformation. The listener passes progressively from a polyphonic perception to a global perception, from the perception of a discontinuous sound phenomenon to a continuous one. In Light Motif it is this perceptual phenomenon that is transcribed into images.
Procedural generation techniques are used to transpose the motifs and compositional processes into a semi-abstract visual form made of colored lights and geometric shapes.
Light Motif explores the possibilities of synergy between music and image through a subjective experience that can speak directly to the subconscious of the viewer.

The Exquisite Corpse Project 2

an experimental film in no language

The Exquisite Corpse Project 2 is a motion graphics piece directed by Michael Waldron and created by a group of artists from around the world. It debuted at this years Motion Conference in Santa Fe. The idea was to create a piece of art that you share with another artist. That artist has to figure out how to seamlessly transition into their piece and then they hand off their work to another artist. This repeats until the final animation is complete.

Le haricot bleu (english subtitles)

an experimental film in French

http://www.pierreetjeanvillemin.fr
Le haricot bleu est une merveille dans la nature.
La profondeur et l'intensité de sa couleur me le rendirent comme ce champignon vénéneux qui est d'autant plus mortel qu'il est attirant.
Avoir des amis est une merveille dans la vie.
Quoi de plus naturel que de partager les petites joies avec ceux qu'on aime.
Les vrais amis vont au bout de leur dévouement ; c'est grâce à eux que je sus que le haricot bleu était délicieux et comestible !

The blue bean is a wonder of nature.
The depth and intensity of its colour makes this poisonous mushroom all the more deadly since it is attractive.
Having friends is a wonder in life.
What more natural than to share the small joys with those we love.
True friends are after their devotion; it is through them that I knew that the blue bean was delicious and edible!
