My wife recently found this outstanding series of shorts floating about Youtube. They feature discussions between a father and his 2 year old daughter, re-enacted with a full-grown man in her stead. This creates a superb tension that helps highlight the often times surreal situations we find ourselves in as parents with young children.
This profound clip from Samsara will captivate you and make you consider the titanic effort needed to feed the growing human population. It is a powerful statement from Ron Fricke who also made Baraka. The six minutes you invest here could help change your perspective on things.
I cannot help but wonder at this beautifully shot piece. The level of technical achievement is impressive, and the camera work is great. However, where the team failed completely was with using giraffes as the main characters. What were they thinking? Everyone knows that if you are going to make a synchronized diving short in Les Halles, it had better be with elephants, or maybe hippos in a pinch.
This answers the question of “what if Pixar made Streetfighter?”
The results would be stunning. Indeed they are stunning, even without Pixar’s DNA on the project. The character design is incredible, and so are the photography, lighting, and animation. It would get my money to see a full length feature in cinema.
Congratulations, and I look forward to seeing more!
These short animations from PES display a wonderful attention to detail and make novel use of every day items to create an engaging experience for the viewer. I’d also have to say that there are a few gamers working behind the camera. I have to give them a big shout out for showing the MOAN (Mother Of All Nuts) in action.
