        • WARD 13


          from MONTAGE PRODUCTIONS Added

          *** WINNER OF 16 INTERNATIONAL AWARDS - ACADEMY AWARD SEMI FINALIST *** Director / Producer / Co-writer / Animator - PETER CORNWELL (The Haunting in Connecticut, Mercy) - Your purchase unlocks the film and 3 Special Featurettes. What price would you put on your health? Ben is about to find out... WARD 13's newest admission faces medical attention of an unwanted kind — and no apples will keep these doctors away. After a car accident, Ben wakes up in hospital. Not knowing where he is or what is going on, he starts exploring the corridors...only to find that the staff don't have his health in mind! The hapless patient must pull himself together and do everything he can to escape. It's an action/horror/comedy — ending with the wheelchair chase from hell! Running time: 15 minutes + special features WHAT THEY SAY.... * * * * * "For sheer hilarity & ingeniousness, nothing I've seen lately has matched this Aussie entry... Full of beautifully dark humour, Ward 13 has… several phenomenal chase sequences, a wicked sword fight and an electric wheelchair pursuit scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark proportions. Writer-director Peter Cornwell's short made me laugh so hard I thought I was set to be admitted to Ward 13 myself." ~ Montreal Mirror, "Film This Week" * * * * * "One of the highlights of our animation offerings this year. Cornwell's movie is as thrilling as any big-time Hollywood hit you're likely to see this summer. It's fifteen minutes of pure pandemonium cast as an action movie, in which a bandaged patient in the mysterious Ward 13 battles to escape the clutches of some tenacious mad scientists out to use his body for their horrible experiments. The action scenes here are incredibly well lit and edited, especially since all the action consists of stop-motion animation. This massive production is a jewel, a treat from Down Under." ~ Dean Treadway, Program Director for Dahlonega International Film Festival * * * * * "High on my list is Ward 13 from Australia's Peter Cornwell about a man trapped in a creepy-ass medical facility. This one features some great action sequences." ~ Ain’t it Cool News reviewing The Animation Show * * * * * "A pure vision from Filmmaker Cornwell, who wrote, produced, directed and animated this wonderfully eclectic crowd-pleaser." ~ Fantasiafest * * * * * "The highlight of this package of 12 recent animated shorts from around the world is Australia's Ward 13, a claymation-style comedy-adventure about a patient trying to escape from an evil hospital. Maniacal surgeons wield dirty butcher knives and a bottle is labeled 'pain enhancement pills'. The furious wheelchair race could have been choreographed by Steven Spielberg." ~ Review of The Animation Show by Kyle Smith, New York Post * * * * * "The Australian Ward 13, a claymation piece about an accident victim in a bizarre hospital, is full of humorous nods to the action-thriller genre — including a high-speed wheelchair chase — while evoking genuine tension and suspense." ~ "'Animation Show': Getting in Toon" By Curt Fields, Washington Post * * * * * "A remarkable achievement in animation, the wheelchair duel sequence makes the chariot race in Ben Hur look like a walk in the park! Hilariously great, superbly done and just plain fun to watch!" ~ Danny Lennon, PRENDS ÇA COURT! * * * * * "Our protagonist... awakens in hospital with his entire head, save his eyes, swaddled in bandages, and it’s a measure of the talent of the director that in this wordless film the main character can emote solely through mime and the tiny acreage of face visible through his unbandaged eye-holes. The sound design is by Mit Out Sound under the direction of frequent David Fincher collaborator Ren Klyce. The darkly funny short’s… only weakness is literally its greatest strength — the fact that it’s a drop-dead great action sequence in search of a larger movie." ~ Taylor Jenssen, Film Review Animation Magazine * * * * * "[Our award was given to Ward 13...] For the precision of the screenplay, the beauty of its art direction, its criticism of the power of doctors and the refreshing cynicism of its treatment of genre cinema." ~ Comment from the Fipresci International Critics Prize --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: Due to limitations with Vimeo audio, this features the stereo mix (surround encoded).

          • 'Take It Slowly' by Xani Kolac


            from Craig Hall Added 541 3 2

            Artist: Xani Kolac Producer: David Gleeson Guest Faculty Mixers: Ren Klyce & Shawn Everett DoP, Operator, & Editor: Craig Hall Recording Engineers: Thomas Geiger & Dominica Kotarba Produced at The Banff Centre. Xani Kolac is a highly-talented, solo-loop violinist from Australia who, in the depths of a Canadian winter, composed, performed, and recorded several pieces at The Banff Centre in Western Canada. Having witnessed her stunning performances, Grammy Award Winning senior recording engineer, David Gleeson, asked Xani if she would be interested in creating a surround-sound project. As the producer of the piece, David was also keen to add a visual component and asked me to shoot and edit the performance. We both agreed that we needed something unique to create visual engagement and decided upon adopting a fast shutter speed so as to capture the string vibrations - so except for layering and beat-timed glows, all effects are in camera. I was very lucky to also work with guest faculty mixers Ren Klyce and Shawn Everett and, along with David, owe them a huge debt for helping me through several rounds of editing to complete my first music video. (This is the stereo mix only.)
