The Clock In My Room Stops / Caibei Cai

Monday, February 6th, 2017

Caibei Cai brings us an endearing short about her struggles with insomnia. Blurring the lines between sleep-state and lucidity, we are guided through a world of abstract visuals, tangential streams of thought and morphing environments. In the median of dreaming it is hard to find a concrete anchor, and in this case we are left to counting triangles in a atmosphere of distorted perception.

The Vast Landscape / Lea Vidakovic

Monday, September 19th, 2016

A fox hunter, a porcelain shopkeeper, the scientist brothers, a seal, a boy and a music box.
Six characters in their rooms filled with traces of longing, separated by a vast and bleak landscape.
Four stories on love, contemplation and (self)destruction.

Flaws / Josh Shaffner

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Josh Shaffner delivers a stunning atypical approach to stop motion animation with Flaws. A combination of cel-animation and pencil/paper wizardry, this piece explores not only technique but windows into the human psyche. Throughout the process, Shaffner accumulated a series of 18 pages of detailed drawings. While some elements flash and stray haphazardly there remains a focal point, alluding to the concept of a centralized constant in the midst of chaos. Although seemingly random and non sequitur, we are confident there is some method to the madness.


The Red Witch / Aron Bothman

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

This student film from Aron Bothman is top notch cinematic storytelling, coupled with stellar artistic direction. A 4th year character animation student, along with a team of other classmates from CalArts, brings us a fascinating piece about future civilizations.

Poetry of Perception / Nadja Oertelt & Caitlin Craggs

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

Brains and creative brawn! A lively and artful abstraction about that which is anything but abstract: our senses. This piece is animated by Cal Art’s Master of Mindbending, Caitlin Craggs, and is one very clever and tactile segment of a fascinating eight part multi-media (dimensional?) series. Read on to muse on Caitlin’s mysterious machinations and to hear from producer and Grand Perceiver Nadja Oertelt about the concept for these sublimely boundary pushing exploratory shorts for HarvardX, each with their own animator.
