Synopsis: Online players describe their struggles with swatting, a life-threatening cyber-harassment phenomenon that looms over them whenever they play. The events take shape through youtube videos and wireframe images from a video game.

Press: "What really distinguishes Swatted is Chandoutis' flair for composing and editing sound and image: the suspense and urgency of the swatting incidents alternate with atmospheric night-time digital images, including the one with which he strikingly concludes". Modern Times Review

Bio : Born in France in 1988, Ismaël Joffroy Chandoutis lives and works between Paris and Brussels. After studying at INSAS, the Sint-Lukas Higher School of Art and Le Fresnoy - National Studio of Contemporary Art, Ismaël Joffroy Chandoutis has developed a "cinématière", a hybrid artistic practice that expands cinema to the field of contemporary art.
His work questions technologies, memory, the virtual and explores the porous worlds of the image.

His latest film Maalbeek, selected at the Semaine de la critique - Cannes, is candidate for the European Film Awards 2021.

    Hey guys,
    The short film that was made in my final year of university with George Warren is now on Vimeo it would be great to know what you think. ’Uki is a short stop frame animation following a lonely Inuit who struggles to survive after an oil tanker leaks oil off the coast of Alaska, killing all the wildlife in the area. A dark comedy about companionship, loneliness and pollution. Created and funded as part of the BBC and BFI's Animation 2018 scheme.’
