We worked as a group of five students during one year and a half to create our graduation film, Tuurngait, at Supinfocom Arles, south of France. It was screened in more than 50 film festivals around the world during the past two years, earning 9 awards in the process. Feel free to visit our website for more informations and behind the scenes ! The film was created in stereoscopic 3D, and if you have 3D glasses, you can view it in "eye-popping threedee" on Youtube (Please, vimeo, we need a 3D player!).

It’s not a secret we love robots here at BLR, so we wanted them to be the heroes in our latest promo clip. Luxury cars with powerful engines to drive through roads under severe speed restrictions, cable TV that allows us to pay to watch all kind of sports, all from our comfortable sofa, and of course, hyper expensive cell phones that do almost everything but making a decent phone call.
Yes, our happiness is based on things we don’t need and governed by entities we don’t control, so what? Sit down and turn on the tv!
The robots were taken from real Japanese robot model kits, and they now hold a privileged position in our freak museum. The bad guy spits real smoke out of its mouth! The environment is made of cardboard houses that were integrated with the help of camera tweaks. It all serves to the purpose of creating a dumb homogeneous atmosphere in which we’re defined by what we’ve got, that is, the same lame things.
Don’t take the message too seriously. This is a promo video we’ve done to laugh at ourselves. We all have an i-diot inside, and it’s so fun!

THE RECORD BREAKER
a film by Brian McGinn
The Record Breaker tells the life story of Ashrita Furman, the man with the most Guinness World Records of all time.
Winner of the Vimeo Audience Award at the 2013 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival and Jury Prizes at the 2012 Palm Springs International ShortsFest, the 2013 New Orleans Film Festival, and the 2014 Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, The Record Breaker follows Furman as he trains to set a new record: climbing Machu Picchu on stilts.
'A swimmingly edited, life-affirming film. Genuinely touching.'
— Robert Silva, IndieWire
'Hands-down the funniest documentary of the year.'
— Marianna Torgovnick, TED
'An ode to human obsession, dedication and monumental silliness.'
— Lena Dystant, Selectism
'A complex appraisal of a fascinating individual...McGinn's film excels because it does more than just focus on Furman’s unconventional hobby. As emotionally complex as it is gloriously ludicrous.'
— Ivan Kander, Short Of The Week
