The Gift

a narrative film in Russian

Directed by Carl E. Rinsch, ‘The Gift’ Belongs to the "pararell Lines" Phillips Cinema campaning. Placed in Russia, The Gift is a Sci-Fi short with a savage Chase sequence on it. We made more than 20 full CGI shots for the short. Check out the animated pictures to see how it has been done. We also made the vechicles and some characters desings. We enjoyed creating such an unusual atmosphere and sense. Not the regular Sci-fi film we are used to see...

What about the bodies

a narrative film in no language

Here's a little film from Simon Ellis which has me in the main role. This was a lot of fun to shoot and thought I should put it out there. It was shot up by the Lake District in England and was a bit nippy. we shot on a PD 170 so you can see it's a little grainy. This film won a couple of awards. You can check out more from Simon on his website at bubtowers.com.au

Copying = Stealing ?

a lecture in English

A webseries debunking the myths of copying.
A week left on Indiegogo! http://igg.me/at/copyme

In the digital world, to copy is to duplicate information to somewhere else, using your own computing power. Digital property is not a finite resource!
Episode number two is basically extending the talk about copying vs stealing. Before heading to deeper waters, we feel it's really important to cover these things at length. In the digital world, things are rather different.

New Era (short film / original score)

a narrative film in English

We wanted to create a short story with a simple message.
We liked the idea of leaving everything you know, abandoning your comfort zone and venturing off into the unknown.
Choosing happiness over security.
Forgetting about what everyone has told you and finding truth for yourself.
Realizing the finality of every moment that passes and its importance in your life.
Your decisions are important. You are important.
If you want something, go get it. If you're unhappy, try something new. If you feel lost, take a trip and find yourself.
Our goal with this film is to offer a new perspective.

Thank you so much for watching! We're new to filmmaking. This is our first short and we know it's not perfect. We would love to hear any feedback, encouragement or advice you may have. Thanks again!
