1. "I installed an ant colony inside my scanner five years ago. I scanned the nest each week..."

    >This short film is an exploration of the aesthetic of life and degradation. 

    Five years ago, I installed an ant colony inside my old scanner that allowed me to scan in high definition this ever evolving microcosm (animal, vegetable and mineral). The resulting clip is a close-up examination of how these tiny beings live in this unique ant farm. I observed how decay and corrosion slowly but surely invaded the internal organs of the scanner. Nature gradually takes hold of this completely synthetic environment.
    The ants are still alive : the process will continue…

  2. A Tribute to BLADE RUNNER

    An experimental film in homage to Ridley Scott's legendary futuristic film “Blade Runner” (1982).
    Created by extracting 167,819 frames from 'Blade Runner's final cut version, then assembling all these images to obtain one gigantic image of colossal dimensions : a square of approximately 60,000 pixels on one side alone, 3.5 gigapixels. A virtual camera was then placed above this big picture which creates an illusion, because contrary to appearances, there is only one image. It is in fact the relative movement of the virtual camera flying over this massive image that creates the animated film, a kind of "zootrope effect", like a film in front of a projector.  
    The whole concept echoes one of the signature scenes from the film where "Deckard" (Harrison Ford) analyzes a photograph via voice recognition software.

  4. Inspired, in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, “Morris Lessmore” is a story of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor. Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story. Using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation) award winning author/ illustrator William Joyce and Co-director Brandon Oldenburg present a new narrative experience that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals. “Morris Lessmore” is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.

    “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore” is one of five animated short films that will be considered for outstanding film achievements of 2011 in the 84th Academy Awards ®.

  5. Music: Taprikk Sweezee "Volt" - Remixed by Kidkenevil
    Directed by: Paul Mumford
    Animation and Production: labmeta.net
    Label: Error Broadcast

    Labmeta was approached by Taprikk in
    late 2011 to create a video for the track Volt on his upcoming Repolyx release. The sumptuous remix by kid kanevil is a dance floor killer, the perfect mix of sleazy, low slung beats with the sweet and intricate vocals of Taprikk. The video features a sparse environment that is manipulated by a polygon reactor, ‘a chromosome that designs a thin crack for revolution, a chance for redesign….’

    Repolyx out NOW on Error Broadcast http://bit.ly/ebctp005
