    What if you watch a film and whenever you pause it, you face a painting? This idea inspired Reza Dolatabadi to make Khoda. Over 6000 paintings were painstakingly produced during two years to create a five minutes film that would meet high personal standards. Khoda is a psychological thriller; a student project which was seen as a ‘mission impossible’ by many people but eventually proved possible...Enjoy!

          This film took 300,000 photos, riots, wildfires, paintings in abandoned houses, two years and zero graphics to make. It changed my entire life. Digital downloads available at www.jeff-frost.com/downloads instagram.com/frostjeff | facebook.com/frostjeff Circle of Abstract Ritual began as an exploration of the idea that creation and destruction might be the same thing. The destruction end of that thought began in earnest when riots broke out in my neighborhood in Anaheim, California, 2012. I immediately climbed onto my landlord's roof without asking and began recording the unfolding events. The news agencies I contacted had no idea what to do with time lapse footage of riots, which was okay with me because I had been thinking about recontextualizing news as art for some time. After that I got the bug. I chased down wildfires, walked down storm drains on the L.A. River and found abandoned houses where I could set up elaborate optical illusion paintings. The illusion part of the paintings are not an end in themselves in my work. They're an intimation of things we can't physically detect; a way to get an ever so slight edge on the unknowable. Early in the process I mapped out a very interconnected narrative structure. It took a long time to fill that narrative structure in, and when I finished editing the film after seven solid weeks of being holed up in a dark room I had no idea if it was something anyone would want to watch. I almost cut the film into pieces before realizing that outside influences were pressuring me to make that decision, and that I was happy with it as it was. It took a long time to come to the creation side of the original premise. It finally took form in a collaboration with sculptor, Steve Shigley, as well as 15 amazing volunteers who moved full sized tree sculptures 450 times over two nights to create the stop motion climax of the film (see the behind the scenes film, Story of Abstract Ritual for the tale of their monumental effort: www.vimeo.com/frostjeff/soar). The idea I wanted to explore was the creation of culture as a conscious creative act, but without the trappings of dogma from institutions or even from ways of thinking. The circle of inverted trees became a small piece of the world with personal meaning where I could mark significant events, contemplate and reflect. That circle still stands, and I still visit it regularly. Several people who have been there have told me that it's come to mean something special for them as well. They each have their own fascinating way of interpreting the power inherent in those trees. This film is art for the sake of art. It was made with much generosity, from the people who let me crash on their couches to the people who backed the Kickstarter to people who just wanted to pitch in: thank you. This would not have been possible without your help. Every spare cent I make goes back into creating art.

              ‘Imprevionism’ is a collaborative project of Jacek(JMS) https://vimeo.com/jacek and Ben. Article on Gizmodo: gizmodo.com/5990125/imprevionism-where-classic-art-and-digital-media-collide And on DailyM: http://dailym.net/2013/03/imprevionism/ Jacek: ‘I call this technique Imprevionism. I use program created in processing and sequence of photos from time-lapse. The program is merging up to 30 photos from TL by using small random, clusters. So, it's similar to idea of Impressionism’ Ben: Jacek timelapses looks like paintings with a nice structure of coloured planes or dots. So it was great when he asked me to cooperate. My idea was to build up the video like a painting. I used animated drawings. First the basic lines, and slowly with dots and planes, showing bit by bit the beautiful timelapses Jacek made. At the end you can see the steps in which Jacek build up his images, but then in reverse mode.

                    As the shadow of night falls across the American West a lone man begins his work. Far from the confines, calamity, and culture of society, multimedia artist and storyteller Jeff Frost sifts through the visual dregs of places and people who once were. Combining still and time-lapse photography with motion, music, and art, Frost reveals a world rarely seen. Rooted in science and the exploration of space, Frost’s work explodes with light, fire, and sound, utilizing 2D and 3D perspective, leading the viewer on a unique visual journey through worlds both real and imagined. - written by the amazing photographer and human being, Daniel Milnor Knockout Quotes from the free eBook: store.blurb.com/ebooks/327392-flawed-symmetry-of-prediction ​"Frost's video footage of the desert and abandoned houses in the American Southwest is certainly stunning in its own right, but it was his incorporation of three perspective-bending optical illusions — and his use of time-lapse as a medium to expose the reality behind those illusions — that really sold us." - io9.com ​ ​"...a glimpse of a world without limits." - Brooklyn Street Art, Steven P. Harrington "[Flawed Symmetry of Prediction] is a monumental thing." - Jeff Dunas, Palm Springs Photo Festival co-founder "Impressive." - Vandalog.com ​ "Very creative and sick." - Tom Lowe, Astronomy Photographer of the Year ​ "Jeff Frost shows us the future of the 21st century book in his audio and visual feast, "Flawed Symmetry." - Eileen Gittins, Blurb Books CEO "Jeff Frost is the author of this new video made ​​frame called Flawed Prediction of Symmetry. She asked him several months of work plans, and melds contemplative and discrete graphics interventions." - allcityblog.fr, translated from French by Google "A breathtaking combination of time lapse and 3D optical illusion." - Coilhouse Magazine + Blog​ "Go away!" - Allison Nazzareno, Hater

                      An aquarel of the cityfront of Kampen. You see the church 'Bovenkerk' and the port 'Koornmarktspoort'. It's mostly in timelapse and sometimes in reverse. I've tried not to make a dull video of the making of a painting. I hope I succeed. Just let me know what you think of it.
