A tale told only with cinemagraphs. Lovely black & white cinematography.
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 is fantastic. Great father, cute kid and a expressive little train.
Needed a cut-down and a little more story or character but the visuals are really incredible for a short.
Besides the captivating visual ideas, it is interesting that the video is longer vertically than horizontally. It would garner more attention on a blog. Clever.

Wow. This is a student film?
One of the more original animated shorts out there. Overflowing with ideas that revolve around a very appropriate title. Great work!
I love stuff like this.
Incredibly strong graphics for an important cause. Just three colors used throughout.
The first half is so haunting. Lovely lovely work. Using multiple channels/screens can be tiresome but this adds up. No image or screen trumps the other, they work together in unison.
Watch it (that link will surely change so it will need updating).
my graduation film at bezalel academy of art and design. a debt to my childhood and other lives i hope i lived. inspired by words of songs that i admire.
Switch to fullscreen, it is gorgeous. Powerful stuff.
After hearing work from ‘The American Dollar’ we really felt the urge to create a music video for one of their new songs. Inspired by the music we had the idea of making a decaying world. One single cameramovement from left to right, showing a landscape, looping 9 times. Day becomes night and even the seasons go by. After we finished the production, we decided to reverse the whole video. This gives you a seamingly happy end, but you know what’s going to happen. There are no lyrics and we did not pay attention to the title of the song, we just felt this was the right thing to do.
