Stanley's life runs like clockwork, until a chance encounter with a mysterious girl turns his world upside down...

About the film:
Stanley Pickle is a short pixilation film shot entirely on a stills camera on 2 sets and 2 locations at the NFTS. The film premièred on to the festival circuit in June 2010 at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, where it picked up the McLaren Award for New British Animation, followed by Oscar qualification at the US première LA Shorts where the film won Best Experimental. After a whirlwind journey through 2011/12 greeting diverse festival audiences worldwide, humbled by winning many more awards, screening on Virgin Atlantic Flights, broadcast in France, Spain and the US, being part of BAFTA Brits to Watch and distributed on iTunes, it's great to be able to say the film is finally available to view online.

The Killing Joke

a narrative film in no language

A Short Film by Sebastian Lopez

The Killing Joke is a 15 minute suspense/fiction short film about a mysterious woman that finds a red balloon tied up to a curious little box on an eery derelict street. Using classic elements of suspense and working within a seventies aesthetic, 'The Killing Joke' is an action packed film that pays homage to some of the horror movies from that era.

The piece was shot during four intense days of filming in the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires. The micro budget production was shot using just two 7d canon cameras. The composition and CGI effects for 'The Killing Joke' required months of 'invisible' digital retouching to create the panoramic, yet claustrophobic atmosphere that pervades throughout the movie.

The Film editor was Sabrina Mottino.

Sebastián López wrote and directed the story, and was also responsible for all the impressive post and composition work.

Colin Devlin created the Original Soundtrack, working from his home studio in LA he collaborated on the project with Sebastian from it's inception, creating a wonderful striking symmetry between sound and image.This is the second collaboration for Sebastian and Colin, the first being an action packed trailer created for a fictitious movie called 'Vertical' that went viral on the net, creating a serious buzz for the young director.

Actors Gustavo Marzo and Clarisa Staracci Worked together to portray the intense characters seen on screen.

The Killing Joke was a work of entire dedication and effort.
