    A respectful homage to Shirow Masamune’s manga and Mamoru Oshii’s seminal film “Ghost in the Shell”, this is a modernized direction that still tries to stays true to the original creator’s vision. What started as a photo tribute directed by Ash Thorp and Tim Tadder (photography), soon became a worldwide collaboration of more than 20 artists from around the world, with each and everyone coming together to help breath life into the project, resulting in the artistic interpretation you see below.

    For a film that was a comment on the uber-connected society of the future, Project 2501 ended up being itself an example of how this collaborative group of creatives are so connected ourselves. Many of us never met beyond the communications provided by the vast and infinite net, but still came together to make the ultimate tribute to “Ghost in the Shell”.
    Everyone of us wanted the opportunity to pay homage to a ground-breaking film that gave us so much.

    We sincerely hope you enjoy our effort to capture the energy and beauty of the original film’s title sequence.

  3. 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...

  4. „One Day” is a short movie, which I have the pleasure of preparing for famous Polish architectural office Jems Architekci. The owners of that office made me a proposal of creating a short spot on the occasion of 25th jubilee of their office existence. From the day of that talk to the date of the ceremony there was only one month, therefore I offered that this movie should present how this house of design functions during one day. In connection with that idea, for the four days long term I have been living with my team in architects’ office block which is located by the Gagarin Street. We have been working there all days and nights having an access to every nook and cranny of their studio and the whole atelier. This task was a really big challenge in the field of logistics, organising the set in so little time and then moving all of necessary equipment at the right place. The main obstacle was the time, especially because material was coming into being in winter and the night began to fall even before the day had begun. Thus we had to start our work about five, six a.m. and in a hurry put out equipment. I planned many time-lapses, most of which we were making for long hours, what allowed our three reflexes cameras to work almost at the same time in different locations. The weather appeared to be also quite a big obstacle. During four days of making the movie at the end of November not even once the Sun shined or even an attractive look like clouds did not appeared. Instead of them Mother Nature offered us a thick, milky suspension with a little rain from time to time. In this circumstances our movie got a big dose of laborious corrections in a postproduction process.

    "Jeden dzień" to krótki obraz, który miałem przyjemność przygotować dla uznanej polskiej pracowni architektonicznej Jems Architekci. Właściciele biura projektowego poprosili mnie o stworzenie krótkiego obrazu z okazji jubileuszu 25 lecia założenia pracowni. Od rozmów z architektami do daty uroczystości pozostawał jedynie miesiąc czasu, a więc niezwykle mało jeśli wziąć pod uwagę tego typu projekty. Trudny limit czasowy był czynnikiem, który w sposób znaczący wpłynął na ukształtowanie się koncepcji filmu i proces jego produkcji. Zaproponowałem by obraz przedstawiał jedną dobę z funkcjonowania domu projektowego Jemsów . W związku z taką ideą, na okres czterech dni zamieszkałem w biurowcu architektów przy ulicy Gagarina, pracując dniem i nocą, mając dostęp do wszystkich zakamarków pracowni i całego zespołu projektowego. Przedsięwzięcie było dużym wyzwaniem w kontekście logistyki, zorganizowania planu zdjęciowego w tak krótkim czasie, a następnie przemieszczania dużej ilości sprzętu już na miejscu. Czas był ogromną przeszkodą, zwłaszcza, że materiał powstawał w środku zimy i zmrok zapadał zanim dzień zdążył na dobre się zacząć. Należało więc zaczynać około 5, 6 godziny rano i w pośpiechu rozstawiać sprzęt. Zaplanowałem wiele timelapsów z których większość powstawała przez kilka godzin, a to pozwoliło na to, by wszystkie trzy lustrzanki pracowały niemal jednocześnie w różnych lokacjach. Przeszkodą okazała się też pogoda. Podczas 4 dni zdjęciowych w końcówce listopada ani na moment nie pojawiło się słońce, czy choćby atrakcyjnie wyglądające zachmurzenie. Zamiast tego matka natura zaoferowała gęstą, mleczną zawiesinę z padającym od czasu do czasu deszczem. W związku z takimi okolicznościami obraz otrzymał potężną dawkę pracochłonnych korekt w procesie postprodukcji.
