An audiovisual meditation on life, fate, the forces of gravity and how to break free from all the weight ... not really, this is nothing more than some pretty visuals. Filmed on the Red Epic with EF lenses, graded in DaVinci Resolve, edited with the Adobe Creative Suite. We hope you'll have as much fun watching as we had creating.

Melancholia is a time-lapse shortfilm shot in Iceland during the summer solstice of 2013, using modified infrared Sony DSLR camera.
During 12 days I explored and photographed both the South Coast and the Snæfellsnes peninsula, looking for the best scenes to represent in infrared.
Direct sun light, green grass and blue skies are a must in infrared photography, and are even better if combined, something not easy to get in Iceland.
I want to thank Quique Touriño for helping me in the hard process of developing the infrared pictures.

Short film about a mobile aluminium foundry casting stools from waste on the streets of São Paulo. studioswine.com
Studio Swine has made a collection of aluminium furniture from street materials of São Paulo. Using a mobile foundry to smelt aluminum cans using waste vegetable oil collected from local cafes as a fuel. Waste collectors known as Catadores mine the streets for materials to produce a furniture series with vernacular aesthetic, providing a portrait of the streets.
The Can Stools are made simply with sand casting technique using readily available construction sand from local building sites, and by casting an assemblage of objects found on the streets. The furnace and the tools are made with salvaged materials.
Can City creates a system where Catadores (waste collectors) can use this free metal and free fuel to produce an endless range of individually crafted aluminum items.
Concept & Design: Studio Swine
Director: Juriaan Booij
Production Assistant: Anya Teixeira
