Ark

An unknown virus has destroyed almost the entire human population. Oblivious to the true nature of the disease, the only remaining survivors escape to the sea. In great ships, they set off in search of uninhabited land. So begins the exodus, led by one man…

Ark is a short movie directed by Grzegorz Jonkajtys who produced it with Marcin Kobylecki at Platige Image.

Pièces détachées

Paul (Antoine Coesens Lazaro), an obsessive casino player, finds himself with lots of debts and it is threatened with death by Benjamin Stern (Jean Claude Dauphin), his creditor. His friends now refuse to lend any money, he then decides to commit the unthinkable: sell one of its organs [...] But by committing this act against nature, Paul puts his finger in a grim spiral that takes him to the borders of madness and death.

The short movie has been written and directed by Sébastien Drouin and produced by himself and Pierre Buffin at BUF.

The film is in French language, with no subtitles!

She Who Measures

Are we truly free? Are our desires truly our own or merely imposed products of the society we live in?

“Film critics’ jury of the 32nd International animated film festival in Annecy (Nadezhda Marintchevska, Avedik Olohadjian and Doris Senn) has decided to give the prestigious FIPRESCI Award to Ona koja mjeri (in English: She Who Measures) by Veljko Popovic.”

The movie was developed at Lemonade 3D and produced by Kenges.

Tuesday

Tuesday - dir: Asa Arnehed, 5:57

A beautiful short animation by Swedish director Åsa Arnehed. Here’s what Andrew Allen said on his place at Short of the Week, where I’ve found the film:

It moves at a crawling pace that, ironically, catches your attention among the mish mash of seizure-inducing videos online. Everyone fights for attention by making things bigger, brighter, and faster, and so no one stands out. It takes a well-timed film like this to bring things back into balance.

Phone Sex Grandma

I hope you don’t rely on telephone sex to get your rocks off because this short documentery would certainly kill that. A one-joke short but the one joke is pretty funny.

Terminus

Terminus

Incredible graphics for this short that works on many levels. Is it about emotional baggage? ghosts? people? bullies?

Salaryman 6

salaryman6.jpg

The mundane and repetitive life of the salaryman is shown in detail as he attempts to piece together his life using the aid of a pocket camera, after losing his memory.

Short film by Ne-O (Jade Knight and Ryoko Tanaka)

The wide aspect ratio and the cold photography gives it a sort of “nightmarish real” visual quality.

Pistache

Pistache

Created by Valerie Pirson, this beautiful video illustrates how interior and exterior forces affect our sense of balance.

Watch it (the subtitles are hard to read, get ready to squint)

The video is hosted at Lumen Eclipse, their archives are filled with all kinds of experimental video goodies.

Dave Gahan – “Kingdom”

Dave Gahan - “Kingdom”

The concept and song play beautifully together. You could spend a semester dissecting this video. My first thought: desolate parking lots and exterior of houses (and what they symbolize) could be the invisible sharks  that exist underneath the water, threatening to destroy everything alive. But as nature started to flash, could it be everybody had left the artificial world to return to the natural world. Maybe leave the physical world for the spiritual world. Or it could be simple as an alien abduction (i kid).

Special mention to the cinematography and color correction. This would be a video I would love to see on HD. No blowouts, high contrast but without that extreme look that music videos seem to thrive on.
