A string of imagery set in a way to create possibilities, not necessarily a confined story. Beautifully shot with a special interest in spaces.
Two videos and two people that use art for similar reasons but with completely different approaches.

The Beach Captain
“Starring Willem Dafoe”! This Willem guy is pretty good.
Keep your eyes fixed on those eyes, it gets trippy. This video creates a new category for itself: animation improvisation.
A tale told only with cinemagraphs. Lovely black & white cinematography.
At times, this short reaches incredible heights. I wish it had a little more story.
This superimposed layered video has been done before. What makes this brilliant are the choices that go with the style. What to highlight, what should be hidden and when do these happent. The dance is lovely. The “story” is simple but open to so many possibilities. Put it up in fullscreen and just sit back and enjoy.
The spoken word is brilliant. The animation is equally brilliant. It improvises, moves, thinks like it were alive. No specific style but a series of connections. This should be played in every classroom.
This short is wonderfully ambitious with its storytelling. The underlying intent: “The larger our past gets the smaller our present feels” is given a world to live in. The animation invites you in with layers of textures and ideas.
Here is the sad truth behind those crappy relationships.
A lovely short by Disney Animation. The style is a mix of modern and old. The story, especially the resolution, is classic Disney. That’s where it kinda disappoints. We like magic on screen, it works but the resolution I wished came from the non-magical. Still, I loved it.
