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.
Beautifully realized. Strong visuals. The ending doesn’t come as a surprise, the twist is a constant refrain of shorts. There is only so much that can be done in a short film format but I did wish the film could have continued for a longer period and delved into some of its ideas.
The apparent sell are the beautiful strippers but the feeling the effects generate hints at a larger more intriguing story.
Great song and performed beautifully. Shot by Steve Milligan.
One of my favorite videos I’ve ever posted here. There is so much that can go wrong with this idea where the entire thing could come off pretentious. Maybe to some, it might very well be a little pretentious. To me, the filmmaker, Martin de Thurah, walked the line beautifully, it is a dream but unlike some films about dreams, there is a connection to a reality that we can easily comprehend.
Truth be told, I can spend a lot of time looking at Iva Gocheva. Her expressions shift and move so quickly and powerfully, my feelings can’t help from mirroring hers. Just lovely work overall. Excuse me as I watch it another time.

Haunting imagery with a vague semblance of a storyline. Effective nevertheless.
The time shifts are lovely. I think cinema should officially replace the cigarette with the lollipop.
Surreal. A short shot like a music video, with a narrative that plays hide ‘n seek.
The end of the world as we know it isn’t in this music video directed by Megaforce.
Watch Solitude is Bliss.
Wanting versus having. The mechanics of desire according to Lizzi Akana.
Just got a comment on this post from 2008 and thought it would be appropriate to give it some more airtime.
Watch Antibodies. (Warning: nudity)
Yeah, you know, those strange animals who put their head into the ground. Let’s see things from their point of view…
