Edgar Wright - How to Do Visual Comedy

a lecture in English

If you love visual comedy, you gotta love Edgar Wright, one of the few filmmakers who is consistently finding humor through framing, camera movement, editing, goofy sound effects and music. This is an analysis and appreciation of one of our finest comedic voices.

P.S. Hoffman

a documentary in English

A post-script journey through Philip Seymour Hoffman's lifetime in cinema.

200 hours of work went into breaking down 47 of Hoffman's films. Compiling his legacy has been one of the most challenging experiences I've faced as an editor, but indescribably rewarding. After 22 years on screen and nearly 50 films, we now look at the oeuvre of an actor whose work can be characterized by his allergy to dishonesty and unflinching spirit of compassion. Please take a breather and raise your glasses to one of our finest.

What is love? - Brad Troeger

a lecture in English

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/what-is-love-brad-troeger

Is love a signal winding through your neural pathways? A cliche? A cult? Love is easy to compare but difficult to define, maybe because we're fundamentally biased; we try to define love while falling in or out of it. And love feels differently to every person who feels it, but this subjective emotion has evolutionary explanations, too. Brad Troeger takes a shot at the definition of love.

Lesson by Brad Troeger, animation by STK Films.

"An elegant and very affecting portrait of big-city loneliness and the instant connections that go “ping” and are gone seconds later. The emotions are halting, delicate, true." -Jeffrey Wells, Hollywood Elsewhere

Anniversary Present

ANNIVERSARY PRESENT

Super 35mm — 8 min Short Film

Written and Directed by Doug Karr

A black comedy delving into the volatile emotionality of newlyweds. The film begins with a blissful wedding, but the young couple’s union explodes when a sudden fit of jealousy unhinges Sandra and Lonnie’s world. Generosity leads to spiteful reprisals as a metal-crushing, fire-spewing crescendo shows that mayhem can be an integral element in the high stakes of true love. Finished as a 5.1 surround sound anamorphic theatrical print, Anniversary Present is a frenetically paced, quixotic comedy.

Starring David Alpay & Liane Balaban

Reviews:
“A total discovery. Visionary, weird and yet simplistic like a good fable. Both timeless and timely!”
– Amy Dotson (IFP New York)

„The world has never seen a more unexpectedly poignant film about moving to New York City and drinking oneself into a depressed stupor before hitting rock bottom and returning home defeated once again. A less creative type would make a self-confessional drama about this subject, cast someone who kinda/sorta looks like them and embarrassingly romanticize this situation. But here, Rainer makes his depressed alcoholic person be a robot, while still delivering a truly emotional experience. Based on this short alone—and very unlike the lead character in his film—the future looks incredibly bright for Christoph Rainer.“
- Michael Tully (Hammer to Nail)
