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.
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.
For those who love embroidery.
I love split screen and this absolutely nails that aesthetic. Lovely idea, executed beautifully.
The music was too repetitive but the visuals are just stunning. Worth the price of admission.
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.
Sometimes, the physical beauty of a performer is all it takes to create something interesting. This is one of those times.
This video was shot with a new Red B&W camera so if that info interests you, head over here.
At times, the whole scene resembles ants transporting their huge prize home. A new kind of reporting: no interviews, no set-up and timelapse says it all.
If this timelapse could play in a loop at home when I woke up every morning, I’d be a happier man. I know, I know, you have seen so many timelapse videos, you are on an official boycott. Give this video a chance. It will be worth your time.
Needed a cut-down and a little more story or character but the visuals are really incredible for a short.
Timelapse from the International Space Station. Not the intent of the filmmakers but I’m reminded how delicate our little ball of earth is. Lovely montage of source material from NASA.
Such striking images. Well done!
What a lovely way to tell a story!
I’d loved to have been there.
