Music Video: Madder Mortem

Music Video: Madder Mortem

Death metal band Madder Mortem’s video for Where Dream & Day Collide is a sci-fi mashup that’s too good to pass up; it’s a delicious blend of steampunk, fantasy, Avatar, and The Matrix.

Short Film: Logorama

Short Film: Pivot

Short Film: Pivot

Netherland-based il Luster’s Pivot is an unusual short film that does an about-face from more complex animations; it instead opts for a minimalist (yet stunning) low poly-count style.

E.T.A. (Short Film)

E.T.A. (Short Film)
