    The fashion-short movie depicts a young girl's journey to the realms of her deepest imagination. In the first act we experience her feelings of loneliness. She is longing for love, light, the unknown, a world yet to be discovered behind the web that entangles the tender bird of her existence - her desire for freedom is symbolized by the delicate beauty of wings and feathers. When she receives a letter, her day-dreaming is ignited by the anticipation of his love in the form of elements and motions representing thoughts, images of freedom, flying, love, colors, energy, strength - intensifying and finally exploding. This image slowly fades back to a dull surreal scene where she finally awakes.

            This film took 300,000 photos, riots, wildfires, paintings in abandoned houses, two years and zero graphics to make. It changed my entire life. Digital downloads available at www.jeff-frost.com/downloads instagram.com/frostjeff | facebook.com/frostjeff Circle of Abstract Ritual began as an exploration of the idea that creation and destruction might be the same thing. The destruction end of that thought began in earnest when riots broke out in my neighborhood in Anaheim, California, 2012. I immediately climbed onto my landlord's roof without asking and began recording the unfolding events. The news agencies I contacted had no idea what to do with time lapse footage of riots, which was okay with me because I had been thinking about recontextualizing news as art for some time. After that I got the bug. I chased down wildfires, walked down storm drains on the L.A. River and found abandoned houses where I could set up elaborate optical illusion paintings. The illusion part of the paintings are not an end in themselves in my work. They're an intimation of things we can't physically detect; a way to get an ever so slight edge on the unknowable. Early in the process I mapped out a very interconnected narrative structure. It took a long time to fill that narrative structure in, and when I finished editing the film after seven solid weeks of being holed up in a dark room I had no idea if it was something anyone would want to watch. I almost cut the film into pieces before realizing that outside influences were pressuring me to make that decision, and that I was happy with it as it was. It took a long time to come to the creation side of the original premise. It finally took form in a collaboration with sculptor, Steve Shigley, as well as 15 amazing volunteers who moved full sized tree sculptures 450 times over two nights to create the stop motion climax of the film (see the behind the scenes film, Story of Abstract Ritual for the tale of their monumental effort: www.vimeo.com/frostjeff/soar). The idea I wanted to explore was the creation of culture as a conscious creative act, but without the trappings of dogma from institutions or even from ways of thinking. The circle of inverted trees became a small piece of the world with personal meaning where I could mark significant events, contemplate and reflect. That circle still stands, and I still visit it regularly. Several people who have been there have told me that it's come to mean something special for them as well. They each have their own fascinating way of interpreting the power inherent in those trees. This film is art for the sake of art. It was made with much generosity, from the people who let me crash on their couches to the people who backed the Kickstarter to people who just wanted to pitch in: thank you. This would not have been possible without your help. Every spare cent I make goes back into creating art.

If you don't have good speakers, use Headphones! http://www.gioacchinopetronicce.com/ "Pictures" Speaks about photography and photographer. Here, the photographer is moving in the space to discover a particular event. When he find it he just push the button and... click ! I tried on this experiment to describe my vision about "how can I make a photography ?" This is like a game with the time, acceleration, break and restart. "Pictures" has been created from 80 000 pictures shot this last 3 years in various city (Paris, Barcelona, Hossegor, Venezia, Toulouse, Martinique, New York City, Montpellier, etc.) Edited with Lightroom 4, Quick Time pro 7, Final Cut Pro 7 and Pro tools 9.

                      Finalist at the Young Director Award in Video Art. For more pleasure, if you don't have good speakers, use Headphones! http://www.gioacchinopetronicce.com/ This is an Independent short film made for Pix' n Love Editions. I thought this movie as a visual and sound experiment guided by the rhythm which imposes the sound to the pictures. Everything goes always faster quite as we change television channels. The challenge was to create the rhythm with static shot. We don't have to forget what we liked in past. I hope you like it... Sounds recorded with a zoom H4N, and fostex Fr2-le and 2 x shoeps. Shot on 7D.
