1. What is the true cost of the dirtiest and most expensive form of oil?

    When people think of the tar sands, they think of the draglines and pits of Fort McMurray.

    The Tar sands spreads across Northern Alberta, encompassing agricultural and wilderness areas.

    The Three Creeks area in the Peace River country is an agricultural area where the residents are becoming ill and the wildlife is leaving. It is all due to the fast expanding CHOPS (cold heavy oil production with oil) production in the area.
    Residents are leaving their farms as the emissions are making them too ill to work while the animals, wild or domestic, are not reproducing and if they do, their offspring are being born with defects and calves take longer to grow to the desired weight for market, costing the farmer too many dollars and cents to stay competitive.

    Other residents have had to leave their homes or farms as the emissions, causing headaches, memory loss and vomiting making it too hard to live in their land.

  5. This piece was named " القهوة " after the Arabic word for the traditional oriental coffee shops in Egypt or middle east. A lot of Egyptians gather after work or even in the morning, sit there, drink tea, coffee, chichat and even sometimes play games this is the reason for it to be the best place to reflect different characters in scenario. The stop motion clip is a play that was actually inspired by the famous french poet Jean de la Fontaine. Through one of his poems he described people who are ignorant and uneducated as animals. We tried to visualize some stereotypical situations to their corespondent animal representation in this small play occurring in an Egyptian coffee shop " القهوة " that is usually situated in the street. Our team was composed of two persons myself and Mona Diab, we had enjoyed our time throughout the whole process of making of: the characters were designed with an authentic look, then printed and cut out on paper. The setting was all hand made and constructed in Mona's house. With the use of spot lights for lighting, here we are we had our own small scaled theater all set up as if in a tiny studio. A fixed camera was placed on a tripod in front of the whole setting and hundreds of pictures were taken.

    This was surely a very special piece of ART.

    Concept and realisation: Nawarra Mehrem and Mona Diab

    We have just done our first project : the main titles for FIU bcn, that is is an event created with the aim of propelling quality projects in the hands of creative new generations. The place where students looking for inspirations and references may address their concerns for the future, as well as a hub where companies interested in the creative-hunting can discover the great creative talent. The event was yesterday at DHUB (Barcelona!) and we want to share it with all of you!
    Just take a look and get fun! :)
