1. A short film about winter.

    Snow is particularly joyful in how it transforms everything it coversThe brightness of its white forces the iris in your eye to shut way down, and suddenly everything that isn’t snow is in silhouette or defined by shadow. The world becomes a high-contrast graphic representation of itself. This distillation of form allowed me to focus on painting pure motion in relation to the winter landscape.

    This film is composed of approximately 2,250 watercolor paintings on paper. It is a kind of winter companion to my film “L’Eau Life,” although here the water is frozen and therefore much easier to paint — because painting snow mostly means leaving the paper white.

    The music is by Shay Lynch, and wonderfully captures the endless cascade of the montage while giving the film a kind of emotional elegance in spite of its vaudevillian pratfalls.This film and essay originally appeared in my blog The Animated Life in the New York Times, Opinion.

  2. Elements is an experimental art film by Maxim Zhestkov about nature, physics, art and love. More than 2 billion elements / particles governed by tensions and forces of nature were used to tell stories and show emotions through the motion of collective behavior.
    The film is a trial to explore the idea that everything around us and inside us is made from simple elements / blocks which can be arranged in complex relationships and become compound structures. We could project this idea into emotions, behaviours, thought processes, relationships, life, planets and the universe.

    Design / Animation / Sound by Maxim Zhestkov.

  4. The Last Bus is a short film about people who are hunted.

    Since 2011, it's been showed on more than one hundred international film events. Film attracted attention, it provoked by its ambiguous cross-animation-fiction nature, and by its content. It was awarded by dozens of awards including the top prizes of the short film festivals in Tampere, St. Petersburg (Message to Man), Kiev and animated film festivals in Stuttgart, Dresden, Ljubljana and others.

    Its real importance comes in 2015 when Europe faces a huge humanitarian disaster and Europeans must look straight into the eyes of refugees.

    Posledný autobus je krátky film o ľuďoch, na ktorých sa poľuje.

    Od roku 2011 bol uvedený na viac než stovke medzinárodných filmových podujatí, vzbudzoval pozornosť, provokoval svojou nejednoznačnou technologickou povahou, i obsahom. Získal desiatky ocenení vrátane hlavných cien z festivalov krátkych filmov v Tampere, Petrohrade (Message to Man), animovaných filmov v Stuttgarte, Drážďanoch, Ľubľane, Kyjeve a ďalších.

    Skutočný význam naberá v roku 2015, keď Európa, a v rámci nej Slovensko, čelí obrovskej humanitárnej katastrofe a musí pozerať utečencom priamo do očí.

  5. An Emo Nose
    I have lost my interest in any kind of social activities after my nose leave me. Am I enjoying loneliness as I thought, or the ugliness of the people around me makes me feel being alone is actually not bad at all?

    ===================================
    《憂鬱鼻》
    自從鼻子一天一天慢慢地遠離,我對社交活動完全失去興趣。是我自以為享受寂寞,還是週遭的朋友事物太醜陋沒趣令我產生「其實孤獨都不錯哦!」的想法呢?
