Voyager

Voyager

“We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours.” Launched in 1977, the Voyager space probes carry sounds and pictures of life on Earth – a time capsule for alien civilizations. This short film wonders whether we need to hear its message too.

Studio Ghibli in Real Life

Studio Ghibli in Real Life

Filmmaker KOJER painstakingly rotoscoped characters and objects from Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro and other Studio Ghibli films, then composited the animation over live footage. The scale is off at times, but we still want to live in that world.

Raw Data

We don’t know much about this short Polish film, except that it’s written and directed by Damian Nenow, produced by Platige Image, and it looks damn sweet. We hope it gets an English version.

Thought of You (Short Film)

We’re enjoying Thought of You, Ryan Woodward’s fluid and beautifully choreographed 2d animation; we’re also scratching our heads and wondering why it won’t be shown at Sundance next month.

The Third & The Seventh

The Third & The Seventh

Alex Roman’s The Third & The Seventh is amazing; this full-CG piece is technically a look both through the lens of a camera and aside it, but is best enjoyed abstractly. Thanks, everyone!
