    • Ducked and Covered: A Survival Guide to the Post Apocalypse


      from Nathaniel Lindsay Added 132K 1,172 44

      Ducked and Covered: A Survival Guide to the Post Apocalypse is an instructional public information film designed to assist the general population with surviving life in Australia after a nuclear war. Produced by the Australian Board of Civil Defense during the early 1980s, this previously unseen, dusty print was uncovered deep within a university film archive. Broken into four chapters, the film guides wary survivors through the trials that will await them in the post apocalypse. From post-apocalyptic fashion and unique uses for surplus human skulls, to becoming a local warlord and avoiding radioactive mutants, there is something for all dwellers of the wastelands. With its dry methodical narration, brooding synthesizer, minimalist animation and erroneous guidance, Ducked and Covered is a dark humored parody/loving homage to the late cold war era, early 1980’s public information films, as well as a reminder… OF WHAT STILL COULD BE.

              Watch the full version here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVRukMEzdE0 A jobbing photographer takes a photo for a couple's wedding invitation. A London Film School exercise - to make a film inspired by a painting in The National Gallery. In my case The Arnolfini Portrait. I was inspired by Colin Wiggins who teaches at the National Gallery, he took us on a walk of the gallery and showed us how all the different art forms should draw inspiration from the past, but reflect the contemporary world we live in. He showed us examples of how the work of filmmaker Ridley Scott, painter Francis Bacon and photographer Tom Hunter has been inspired by the likes of Vermeer and the Italian Renaissance. This was a term two exercise (out of six terms). We had 200 feet of 16mm to shoot with, that's roughly 5 minutes. Every bit of sound was post-synchronized - recorded after the edit and matched to the picture on a Steinbeck.

                    from Grande Dame Added 990 14 0

                    The Trip is a quintessentially Southern tale of a hung-over hussy driving through the Bible Belt in her candy apple red 1970 GTO convertible on hot and sticky summers day. Riding along to a "Mystery Train" meets "Boy Named Sue" soundtrack - all goes awry when this southern belle meets her knight in shining armor aka hunky redneck with shiny golden tooth. Illustrated in a hyper-coloured animated style that is uniquely Grande Dame, this dark animated, road trip comedy is visually rich, entertaining, risqué, and destined to be a cult Southern classic.
