  2. jrcanest.com/WHATSTHEPROBLEM/

    “WHAT’S THE PROBLEM?” It’s a short documentary by Jr.canest (me), it was my final project for Vancouver Film School, I decided to explore a whole new area that I always wanted to explore; Documentaries. So after working a lot in front of the computer creating mostly motion graphics I thought it was a great opportunity to explore this area of film-making.

    I’ve been always interested in people’s different opinions and point of views, especially what we as human beings think about our little world and what better question than ask people what they think the problem in the world is and not just that but also, if they gave me an answer, ask them if they have a solution for that problem or if they have been doing something about it and that is what this documentary is about. The objective was to show people’s different point of views and put the question out there to people think about and maybe start doing something.

    During the process I learned a lot, I used my friend’s camera, the audio was not good but I had to work with it, I interviewed more than 50 people around Vancouver (and surroundings in BC, Canada) and Seattle, WA (USA), some people refused to speak in front of the camera but they talked to me anyways… I was surprised that almost every single one of the people that I approached had something to say about the subject, another interesting fact is that our point of view of the problem in the world is (in most cases) defined by our environment, the people around us, our social status, etc… is this the way it should be? Or maybe that is another problem, we don’t think outside our reflective and selfish bubble.

    The project was finished on November 09.

    Thanks for all the people that helped for the project and especially all those were in front of the camera and they were willing to be part of the project.

  3. Resonance is the vision of SR Partners; a collaborative project with over 30 independent visual and audio designers / studios. The aim was to explore the relationship between geometry and audio in unique ways.

    Animators and Audio Designers were paired up at the beginning of the project and were given the guidelines to create a piece between 12 and 20, I had the awesome opportunity to work with David Kamp.

    This piece is my approach to the connection between audio and shapes, I tried to give this abstract animation a certain type of emotion, that every movement happening on screen would be more than the sole propose of look cool and sync to the sound, to do this I based this video on a section of John Bunyan's "The Pilgrim's Progress", when Christian is guided trough the Interpreters House. It's a very personal, graphic and non-descriptive explanation of this part of one of my favorite books It's intended more to help me as the animator to give some meaning to the animation rather than narrate the story.
    (If you're curious about this you can find an extract of the book here: http://goo.gl/aJ91j)
