Animation / Experimental Shorts #2

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Loaded with local talent, this epic block is a mash up of endearing animation, cerebral suggestion, understated philosophy & overt paranoia, raw humor, technorobics, angst, and poetry.  It finishes with an altered-lens-umentary and a what-the-what.  Enjoy the ride!
  • Une Balade a la Mer (dir. Damien Stein / 4 min.)
    A ride towards the sea is the odyssey of a small animated character who decides to go out to face the city and the nature to free his goldfish. But the cadence of his own will reserve for him numerous surprises: every person, every element of the city which he will cross could be violent to him. 
  • Onward (dir. Eric Huber / 3 min. / Hometowner) 
    Onward is a cluster of videos in space emulating the gleaned information we keep queued in our consciousness to draw from as we go through our day to day activities. The videos loop as our point of view travels around and amongst them in three-dimensional space. 
  • Fight the Robots (dir. Russell Sadeghpour / 9 min.)
    An emphatic L.A. expat deliberates with his skeptical friend about life in Los Angeles, NSA surveillance of digital communication, satanic influences in the entertainment industry, and shamanism in the computer age. 
  • Don't Be Afraid of Bears (dir. Jill Johnston / 4 min.)
    Theriophobia is a fear of the beast. Naturalist Barry Lopez defines it as fear of the beast as an irrational, violent, insatiable creature. Reflection on childhood memories and fears induce impressions of the beast within and reciprocity of species. 
  • Prom Shorts: A Girls Story (dir. Sheri Bancroft & Kate Crowder / 4 min. / Hometowner)
    Imagine being 17. Imagine being a girl. Imagine it's prom. Imagine you're in a white Cinderella dress....and an uninvited guest suddenly appears: your period. To make matters worse, you've never used a tampon. Imagine this whole scenario played out badly...with puppets. That's Prom Shorts: A Girl's Story. 
  • Binary (dir. Andre Silva / 2 min.)
    A digital brain attempts to understand the two primal opposites from a survey of human opinions. 
  • Marianne (dir. Richard O'Connor / 3 min.)
    A visitor brings a poet to reflect on love and work. Based on diary entries of the young Bertolt Brecht. 
  • M'Aidez (dir. Jesse Turnball / 9 min.)
    A stop motion animated short that follows an astronaut stranded in space. 
  • Humanexus (dir. Katy Borner & Ying-Fang Shen / 11 min.)
    The human race has long searched for meaningful interpersonal connections. Tools and technologies have made it easier to reach out and share ideas, but each presents a new, unforeseen challenge. We must always ask: 'Is this what we want? What do we want?' 
  • Asura - So Succulent (dir. Ben Siler / 2 min. / Hometowner) 
    Dance video. Made with microscopes and drones starring Jessica Morgan, Chase Morgan, Woody Woodward, Frankie LaFemme, Brannan Denney, Music "So Succulent" by Asura  
  • Two Whole Days of Nothing But Uppercase "F*CK!" (dir. Laura Jean Hocking / 6 min. / Hometowner) 
    See title. 
  • Unity (dir. Tobias Stretch / 5 min.) The pursuit of oneness and absolute being.
  • Thousand (dir. Danijel Zezelj / 6 min.) 
    The sun has not been rising for years. There is a legend going around the city: Paint the sun a 1000 times and it will rise again. 
  • John Doe (dir. Yizhou Li & Dustin Reno / 4 min.)
    When a frustrated detective literally begins putting the evidence together on a seemingly unsolvable case, his pursuit for the truth takes an unexpected turn.
  • Meteor (dir. Charles Girffon Gibson / 15 min.)
    The meteor that hit the United States in 2014 caused unbelievable damage to the nation. This film is an exploration of the strange aftermath. 
  • Rendezvous (dir. Emily Kuehn / 5 min.)
    A surprising inquiry turns a typical rendezvous into a musical inter-species encounter.
