Analogue Loaders / Raphael Vangelis

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

If only all of those pesky stalled loaders and beach balls were this delicious, we might not be so hungry for our machines to respond. Raphael Vangelis takes an opportunity to reimagine loaders in a dimensional and highly stylized fashion. He comments on this piece: “This short film is my animated autobiography. I spend most of my life swearing at the computer because it’s crashed or isn’t working. Here, well known digital symbols are turned into something analogue and playful. The result is an homage to all the lost time we collectively spend in digital limbo in the hopes of sudden development on our screen. “

The Itching / Diane Bellino & Adam Davies *Mature

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

What could possibly go wrong with a shy wolf at a bunny house party in the middle of the woods? Not what you would expect. In this award winning short, we are “itching” to find out what could be troubling such an adorable animal. The dark foreboding woods translate as a metaphor for the mind of this troubled protagonist. She becomes lost and bewildered by her ailments, until a friend shows up and helps soothe her wounds. Lacking any kind of dialogue, we are still invited to empathize with the creatures; their fears, their passions, and the itches they can’t seem to scratch.
