This Day (feat. Winston Churchill)

a documentary in English

Music: M83
Speech: Excerpt from Winston Churchill's address to the Congress of the United States, December 26, 1941

"Sure I am that this day, now, we are the masters of our fate. That the task which has been set us is not above our strength. That its pangs and toils are not beyond our endurance. As long as we have faith in our cause, and an unconquerable willpower, salvation will not be denied us. In the words of the Psalmist: "He shall not be afraid of evil tidings. His heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord."

Presidential Debates are a Mess, Here's How To Fix Them

a talk in English

When presidential debates become a media circus, it's the voters who lose. But an alternative debate format would eliminate the kind of candidate-moderator feud that is dominating our political moment. John Donvan is co-author of "In a Different Key: The Story of Autism" (http://goo.gl/5GcQ6w).

Transcript - The public is so politicized that if I were moderating a presidential debate and I were to say to one of the candidates, you know, you’re really off point and you’re not responding, everybody would think that that means I’m on the other guy’s side. And that doesn’t happen in the Intelligence Squared debates. I don’t know why, but the audience recognizes and understands that what I’m trying to do is to protect the integrity of the debate. That if I’m calling somebody for not really debating well, our audience gets it that what I’m trying to do is to make the debate better. Not help one side or the other. I think in the presidential debates the moderators if they don’t interrupt, it’s their fault for letting the debate run off the rails. And if they do interrupt, they get attacked for taking sides. And that’s why I think it’s a sort of no — it’s a very difficult situation. I actually think and we have proposed to the presidential debate commission that they do the debates our way. Have a stated motion, do an Oxford-style debate — at least one time. I would be happy to moderate it. You’re going to debate about for and against this motion. You’re going to be okay with me interrupting. You won’t take it as an insult. You won’t take it as me taking sides. And may the best person win.

Why people believe they can’t draw - and how to prove they can | Graham Shaw | TEDxHull

a talk in English

Why is it that so many people think they can’t draw? Where did we learn to believe that? Graham Shaw will shatter this illusion – quite literally - in a very practical way. He’ll demonstrate how the simple act of drawing has the power to make a positive difference in the world.

Graham specialises in the art of communication and has helped thousands of people to make important presentations. He is perhaps best known for his use of fast cartoon drawings to communicate ideas and is the author of ‘The Art of Business Communication’.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

How to Abandon Ship

a narrative film in English

It began on a train; uncomfortable side-glances and a hot dog dripping down her blouse. They would find themselves on a first date and soon enough taking part in the age-old custom of cohabitation. However, what starts as a voyage to “paradise” suddenly veers off course. Without warning they find themselves in the middle of a storm, set with the duty of how to abandon the sinking vessel. A retrospective look at how some cope, whether it mean disappearing into the wood-works or denying the wreck entirely.

Meet Buck

a narrative film in no language

Check out our other short : http://vimeo.com/15126262
And our collective's website : http://steakanimation.com !

Buck is an ordinary guy. Well, if you accept the "deer head" thing.
Today, Buck is going to spend the afternoon with his girlfriend who's so happy to see him (she's pretty much happy all the time). But when Buck finds out that her father is not the tolerant and sympathetic guy he expected, the Sunday afternoon turns really bad. Really bad. Like baaaaaaad bad.

Buck est un jeune ordinaire. Enfin...si on exclut sa tête de cerf.
Et aujourd'hui, Buck compte bien passer son Dimanche après-midi avec sa petite-amie qui est super contente de le voir, comme toujours. Mais quand Buck découvre que son futur beau-papa n'est pas si sympathique et tolérant que sa fille, l'après-midi va tourner au drame.

Patterns 2

a narrative film in English

The sequel to Patterns, now referred to as Patterns 1. If you question why you are watching this, stay put—the musical finale will explain it all.

Ion Magazine said: "Passivity isn't really an option when watching his films as the mise en scène is handled with the meticulousness of a serial killer and immediately draws you in."

Red: A Kubrick Supercut

a documentary in no language

A supercut examining Stanley Kubrick's use of the color red.

I have always been fascinated by color as a form of non-verbal communication. Color has a profound and powerful psychological effect on us and it makes the perfect tool for providing subtext in film—as well as supporting a certain theme or providing the right mood.

Kubrick has always used red to great effect—not only for atmosphere but for the fact that the various meanings ascribed to red echo many of the themes in his films.

Red’s many meanings include: death, blood, danger, anger, energy, war, strength, power, determination…but also passion, desire, love, and sex. All prominent themes in Kubrick’s work. But more importantly the very dualistic nature of red (the fact that it can mean anger but also love) plays right into the grand “Jungian" theme in all of Kubrick’s work which is this notion of Duality: sex and violence, birth and death, war and peace, fear and desire...

In the end my motivation to make this piece was simply to contribute to the growing collection of deconstruction surrounding Kubrick's work found on the web and to inspire people to revisit or discover his catalog of films and to think more critically about color in film.
