1. Lamenting the demise of the audio cassette, we at M-I-E, thought it would be nice to try and find a fitting tribute to it’s faded glory. ‘Jammed’ is the story of a bold, heroic, Viewmaster robot, venturing into an unknown world to save an unknown soul. We had great fun making this short film, using a mixture of stop motion and 3D techniques. The music was composed by our talented friends, Dan and John, at Meanred.

  4. A short film by Benny Box.

    Sometimes a song can get stuck in your mind. Become a little piece of unwanted music, that keeps looping for the rest of your day.

    Neurologists claim that stuck songs are like thoughts we're trying to suppress. The harder we try not to think about them, the more we can't help it. The phenomenon is also known as earworms, and the ongoing ‘dim di da da dum’ causes a kind of brain itch you can't scratch. 

    Jazz that nobody asked for is an ode to all those unwanted songs out there, that have nowhere to go. The music that haunts this film, is the amazing swing jazz tune 'Quaker City Jazz' by the long forgotten ‘Jan Savitt and his Top Hatters’. In 1937 they were the first jazz big band to feature an african american vocalist.

    The film is made without any financing, and has no commercial purpose. The love of all things animated has been the driving force for the small team of 3 persons that has created it.

  5. Time lapse sequences of photographs taken by the crew of expeditions
    28 & 29 onboard the International Space Station from August to October,
    2011, who to my knowledge shot these pictures at an altitude of around 350 km.
    All credit goes to them.

    HD, refurbished, smoothed, retimed, denoised, deflickered, cut, etc.
    All in all I tried to keep the looks of the material as original as possible,
    avoided adjusting the colors and the like, since in my opinion the original
    footage itself already has an almost surreal and aestethical visual nature.
