      Project page: http://www.christianschmeer.com/Malaise-2013/ Malaise (2013) is a non-narrative documentary short film exploring Beelitz-Heilstätten. Built from 1898 as a sanatorium to care for victims of tuberculosis its intended use soon became distorted, serving as a German military hospital during World War 1 and 2, and Soviet military hospital after World War 2. Prominent historical figures recuperated in the hospital, notably; Adolf Hitler, after being wounded at the Battle of Somme during WW1, as well as Erich Honecker following his dismissal as the head of the East German government. In 1989, the grounds became the scene of 6 murders as necrophilic serial killer Wolfgang Schmidt, also known as "The Beast of Beelitz", terrorised the area. Once considered amongst the most advanced hospitals in Europe, Beelitz-Heilstätten has been abandoned and left to dilapidate due to discrepancies over ownership. Counting more than 60 buildings spread over 200 acres, linked via underground tunnels, Malaise delves into a small fraction of the "healing town", but attempts to convey its unsettling atmosphere through a distinct, yet delicate treatment of colours and tones. The film amalgamates subtle camera movements with still images and sound. This film was screened at: • Magnum Print Room, London (England) • Fantadia Festival Internazionale di Multivisione, Asolo (Italy) • Cinematique, London (England) • Aesthetica Short Film Festival, York (England) • Regensburg Short Film Week, Regensburg (Germany) • Glasgow Short Film Festival, Glasgow (Scotland) PLEASE NOTE: I activated the download function for playback quality purposes ONLY.

        Nominated for an Emmy at the 2013 50th Annual Emmy Awards! I wanted to take the prim and proper concert piano and pianists straight off the stage and throw them into the dusty, scary, grimy mess of the factory where these majestic black creatures are born. I have always wanted to make a video with a piano in it and finally got the chance to make this quick little video! I have always been mesmerized by pianos, even just the look of them. They have always had an ominous quality to them. Their shiny, black skin, and volcanic vibrations inside. I wanted to show the piano the way I saw them...as passionate, living beings that suck the creative life out of anyone who touches them and feeds it into the ears of the listener. Steinway let my cinematographer (Nathan Miller) and I into their factory to run around and shoot with some of their brand new crazy expensive pianos. It was a dream come true! They don't let filmmakers or photographers in very often, so I am very grateful that they let us do the things I did inside there!! Haha! And to work with the pianists, having fun experimenting on this was one of the best times I've had this year. I almost got heat stroke, I sprained my ankle, and almost died from the fumes in the factory, but I (we) survived it! And thank you, Clay, for enduring the craziness!

            This was my first time out of the United States. This video was the feeling I got while in Spain. The layers and layers of history everywhere the eyes turned gave the sense of mystery and exciting eeriness. I went to Barcelona, Seville, Cadiz, and Madrid. Shot on naked little Canon HV40 (no lens adapters, tripods, rigs, or any of that stuff). Edited with Sony Vegas. Music: Cat Power's "Werewolf" www.catpowerthegreatest.com/ "Torture" by Richard Einhorn. Train sounds recorded by Owen Kehoe www.kehoe.org/owen

            • Z


              from Alan Warburton / Added

              Directed and Animated by Alan Warburton. Commissioned by Animate Projects for Channel 4’s Random Acts series. Soundtrack by Max Richter. ‘Z’ is composed entirely of z-depth images - also known as ‘luminance depth’ or ‘depth map’ images. Z-depth is a ghostly black & white data-driven format native only to CG animation. The function of the z-depth image is similar to radar or the MRI scan. It interprets objects within a scene according to distance: those closest to camera are black, those furthest away are white (or vice versa). Details are lost at either end of the spectrum, and are likewise revealed within the middle distance. Functionally, this allows CGI artists to pull camera focus in post-production by using the monochromatic shades in the z-depth pass to isolate and focus on the corresponding depths of the full-colour CG scene. The ‘selective vision’ embodied by the Z-depth image format has informed the theme of the animation - the production of historical narrative. Z is about how we make sense of the clutter of current events, how we create epochs, and how, in an era of intense global change, we are affected by a kind of longterm myopia that obscures us to the larger forces at work. Full Credits: Directed and Animated by Alan Warburton. Commissioned by Animate Projects for Channel 4’s Random Acts series. Soundtrack ‘Iconography’ by Max Richter, courtesy of Fat Cat Records. Title Card by I Love New Work. Special thanks to Mainframe.

                An old abandoned radiostation. Located in the middle of nowhere. The place was quite intruiging, theres was noone around, just a lot of nature and a few abandoned buildings. All the buildings were locked. The weather was great, too, and we happened to have a cheap handycam with us.

                  Ladies and gentlemen, your President is a robot. Or a wax sculpture. Maybe a cardboard cutout. All I know is no human being has a photo smile this amazingly consistent. On Wednesday, the Obamas hosted a reception at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, during which they stood for 130 photographs with visiting foreign dignitaries in town for the UN meeting. The President has exactly the same smile in every single shot. See for yourself — the pictures are up on the State Department’s flickr (link below). And, of course, compressed into 20 seconds for your viewing pleasure. http://www.flickr.com/photos/statephotos/sets/72157622444106644/ Music is "Cold Hands" by the Black Lips.

                    Operator is a stop motion animated short film about a man named Bob, attacked by a bio-mechanical parasite, fighting for his life and family against forces much greater than himself. I was inspired by a few things to make this film. Firstly, cordyceps mushrooms which infect and control the minds of ants, causing them to climb up as high as possible so that when the mushroom finally bursts from the ants head the spores are spread as far as possible by the wind." Secondly, "parasitic ideas" - such as ideologies designed by cults or oppressive regimes explicitly to weaken and control the holders of such beliefs, and the callous mechanization of corporate bureaucracy. sprawling bureaucracies in super massive organizations can have so many moving parts and conflicting interests that no human maintains real control Directed By Sam Barnett Voice By Alejandra Bursik-Cervantes My website: http://BarnettFilm.com Trailer for operator: https://vimeo.com/48282673 Production stills (scroll down under video): http://barnettfilm.com/Operator.html Official Selection: ScreamFest 2013 Horrible Imaginings San Diego 2013
