NEWMEDIA

an experimental film in English

As seen in many sci-fi films tapes, we've been invaded again, but this time is our own fault: We've created New Media.
They've dominated the human race, changing themselves into biomecanical appearance self-sufficient organisms.
Far from the action footage and the explosions which define this film genre, the world is now an unshakeable place; victim of the alienation caused by the sent signals.

Como en muchas cintas de ciencia ficción, hemos sido invadidos nuevamente, pero esta vez la culpa es nuestra: hemos creado a los medios de comunicación.
Ellos han dominado a la especie humana, convirtiéndose en organismos autónomos de apariencia biomecánica.
Lejos de la acción y las explosiones que caracterizan este género fílmico, el mundo es un lugar imperturbable; víctima de la alienación provocada por las señales enviadas.

Direction & CG Animation
Julian Cooke and Sebastian Dias

Soundtrack by Doomdozer

Photograph Of Jesus by Laurie Hill in association with the Getty Images Short & Sweet Film Challenge

an experimental film in English

Short and Sweet has teamed up with Getty Images to launch a film challenge with a twist.
Getty Images approached producer Basil Stephens and Short and Sweet founder Julia Stephenson with the idea of setting up a film competition which would make use of images in Getty's Hulton Archive. Stephenson drew from her in-depth knowledge of the short film arena to suggest a selection of talented filmmakers.
After picking out ten up-and-coming directors, she gave them the opportunity to pitch. Four of the filmmakers made it on to the shortlist and got the chance to realise their ideas. They were given three months to create their films.

The challenges aim was to highlight the breadth and depth of content available at the Hulton Archive, which offers a unique resource to filmmakers and creatives alike. But rather than set a rigid brief, the challenge offered key words and phrases as prompters to guide the filmmakers creativity. Examples of these prompters included discover our past, images that shape our future, still & moving imagery, ordinary people, ordinary things and extraordinary people, extraordinary things.

At the Quinte Hotel

an experimental film in English

A fluid, vibrant and kinetic riff on one of Al Purdy's best-known poems, recalling the experimental, interpretive work of Norman McLaren. It's not a literal adaptation, but something more free-associative that visually accompanies the text while staying true to the playful, erudite spirit of the poem and Al Purdy's imagination. We used oil paint, acrylics, graphite, charcoal, wire, cut paper, a beer mug, linoleum, bottlecaps... you name it, we art-worked and animated it. Almost all the animation was done in-camera, except for a bit of compositing after the fact. Directed by Bruce Alcock.

Mixtape Club "Hello, I Like You"

an experimental film in no language

F5, the physical manifestation of Motionographer — our favorite resource for design and animation — commissioned us to create a short film around the festival theme of Happiness. We went back to basics, breathing life into the simplest of inanimate objects, transforming them into a playful tapestry — all choreographed to a hypnotically whimsical track scored by our allies at Huma-Huma.

HINODE

an experimental film in no language

This is a CG movie that depicts saltation and growth of life in the sea using jewelry as the motif for illustrating the theme "Jewels of Sea." It creates mystifying and attractive scenery by the ores resembling creatures of sea and its transforming refraction and reflection of light that are affected by the organic moves.
