Akin to Awakenings starring Robert DeNiro, this short demonstrates the prison that is the disturbed and fractured brain – in this case, a victim of multiple personality disorder. Directed by his many personas that roam freely in his head, Daniel is merely a mouthpiece of whoever is currently the loudest – or whoever makes the most sense for the moment.
Gritty and harsh, although at times a little cartoonish – it remains the stark depiction of a tortured brain.

Do me a favor. Watch the film, then come back to the description. No spoilers.
Done? Good. Fantastic huh? Taking the sub-culture of an innocence American dive country bars, this film is at first funny as hell – two completely opposite personalities (played excellently by Timothy Brennen and Ian Gary) manage to keep you amused until the frankly terrifying conclusion arises, popping up behind your back to say ‘boo’ – this take on H.G. Wells War of the Worlds is thoroughly entertaining.
Directed by Lowell Northrop
Gorgeous experimental piece from director Takeuchi that uses commercially available motion-capture software to re-represent a beautiful dance. The flickering, atomic quality to it reminds me of fragments of human composition, that we are never just one thing, but billions of independent components working in synchrony.

I never suggested that this website had a sense of taste – and to emphatically prove this point, check out this silly, violent and really quite funny apocalyptic (the title kinda gives it away) short.

Just a short offering today; solitude is described by a man who got a taste of the wilderness and never looked back. Quiet and alone with his thoughts, he humbly imparts chunks of knowledge we should all take seriously.

Massive Attack music videos never fail me – always emotive, always provoking, always a little bit of violence, and always expressing the music in fascinating ways. This offering from Edouard Salier is no exception. Through the frozen midst of a godzilla-esque attack on a metropolitan area, every surface, every person, vehicle and building is fractured mirrored glass, the only natural or organic surface appearing to be the form of the giant attacking bunny – an image less comical than it is reminiscent somehow of the bloody starkness seen in the animated rendition of ‘Watership Down‘. Five views in, I’m no closer to full understanding the visuals, but it is mesmerizing in its terrible beauty. Thoughts?
