1. RUIN - An animated short set in a post-apocalyptic universe. It's only a tiny sliver of a much larger story. Thankfully, it's now set up at 20th Century Fox to become a full length feature.

    Text: Sandra Moskova

    The basic idea of the project is built upon the consideration of creating
    a moving sculpture from the recorded motion data of a real person. For
    our work we asked a dancer to visualize a musical piece (Kreukeltape by
    Machinenfabriek) as closely as possible by movements of her body. She was
    recorded by three depth cameras (Kinect), in which the intersection of the
    images was later put together to a three-dimensional volume (3d point cloud),
    so we were able to use the collected data throughout the further process.
    The three-dimensional image allowed us a completely free handling of the
    digital camera, without limitations of the perspective. The camera also reacts
    to the sound and supports the physical imitation of the musical piece by the
    performer. She moves to a noise field, where a simple modification of the
    random seed can consistently create new versions of the video, each offering
    a different composition of the recorded performance. The multi-dimensionality
    of the sound sculpture is already contained in every movement of the dancer,
    as the camera footage allows any imaginable perspective.

    The body – constant and indefinite at the same time – “bursts” the space
    already with its mere physicality, creating a first distinction between the self
    and its environment. Only the body movements create a reference to the
    otherwise invisible space, much like the dots bounce on the ground to give it
    a physical dimension. Thus, the sound-dance constellation in the video does
    not only simulate a purely virtual space. The complex dynamics of the body
    movements is also strongly self-referential. With the complex quasi-static,
    inconsistent forms the body is “painting”, a new reality space emerges whose
    simulated aesthetics goes far beyond numerical codes.

    Similar to painting, a single point appears to be still very abstract, but the
    more points are connected to each other, the more complex and concrete
    the image seems. The more perfect and complex the “alternative worlds” we
    project (Vilém Flusser) and the closer together their point elements, the more
    tangible they become. A digital body, consisting of 22 000 points, thus seems
    so real that it comes to life again.

    Life is transparent, warm and swirls randomly like a soft light. And it constantly changes...
    Life illuminates itself and then it begins to illuminates a new life.
    A sprouted mass of innumerable lights become a flow before long, and then become the part of the life-throb of ages.
    That ties life, this moment now.

    Special thanks to the Actors: Denise Diaz & Mariana Prieto, for taking out their time during their own finals at school for this.

    Liquid Skies is the story of an astronaut hurtling across the universe--past suns you and I may never glimpse, yet fighting battles we may all face ourselves one day.

    This is my student short film at Art Center College of Design. It is my first big attempt at animating or doing something at this scale and finish. This is part of a broader story that I am working on, following an astronaut across the suns of many galaxies. I hope to share it with the world in the next year.
    More information on this is available on my website.

  5. Directed by Carl E. Rinsch, ‘The Gift’ Belongs to the "pararell Lines" Phillips Cinema campaning. Placed in Russia, The Gift is a Sci-Fi short with a savage Chase sequence on it. We made more than 20 full CGI shots for the short. Check out the animated pictures to see how it has been done. We also made the vechicles and some characters desings. We enjoyed creating such an unusual atmosphere and sense. Not the regular Sci-fi film we are used to see...
