Graduation project. This film has been written symmetrically: the second half is strictly like the first, but played backwards and mirrored. The second part doesn't act like a simple rewinding, but as the following of the first. It explores all sorts of symmetry: compositions, shapes, sounds and music, scenario, colors, actions, time... Written, directed & edited by Yann Pineill Music by Cliff Martinez & Joseph Haydn Starring Edouard Sanville, Daphné Sanville & Romane Pineill http://parachutes.tv/+ More details

A film by Ben Ridgway Cosmic Flower Unfolding is a constant flow of emerging and dissolving oceanic, futuristic, and mandala forms. It is a tribute to abstraction, it’s connection to the inner space we inhabit and how it can be externalized.

Large groups of tape rolls go through a long process of development and degeneration. The extremely slow paced life of these objects is being revealed within an isolated space where everything starts from a symmetric composition. From this orderly state deviations and differences in behaviour slowly become visible through the force of gravity. Resulting in unpredictable shapes and movements that somehow feel familiar.

Symmetry, is sometimes described as “a vague sense of harmonious and beautiful proportion and balance”. Symmetry and balance is something that we strive for in almost every aspect of our lives. Our diet, our work, our physical and mental health, all require a certain level of balance. I tried to capture the magic of symmetry on a snowy day in March 2013. more infos: facebook.com/extraweg or www.extraweg.com Please watch in HD ;-) hope you like that!

I often find myself making notes on what techniques or projects I want to attempt next, changing and adding to them. This was a culmination of a few of those notes during my free time in the past few months. I wanted to try my hand at heavily tracking footage, with the intention of using those tracks to design a piece that was calm and beautiful and natural. I located some beautiful shots of butterflies already shot and felt those would be a perfect start. This is my best attempt at that using my favorite song, ever. A special thanks to Ryan Farms who shot the original butterfly footage and let me chop, grade and mix his work: http://vimeo.com/21904714 Original music by: The Cinematic Orchestra - To build a home+ More details

Study #14 of the THE SYMMETRY PROJECT by Jess Curtis and Maria Francesca Scaroni The Symmetry Project is a journey through perception. Two naked bodies interact through a highly structured improvisational score, constricted in a specific physical practice; that of moving symmetrically, relative to themselves or to each other. In this space of temporary “habitus”, the two bodies are constantly tuning, reformulating the perception of the self and of the other. In the sharing of a central axis, spine, mouth, genitals, face, and anus reveal their interconnectedness and centrality in embodied experience. Limbs entangle and intertwine creating an inter-corporeal kaleidoscope of flesh. A kind of über-intimacy develops, going far beyond sexuality into a kind of communal biology, a symbiotic sensory field. Blending, merging, and then again differentiating, the two become “unfinished entities” – as Pierre Bourdieau refers to the body - improvising new habits, “perceiving the possible”. Exploring and manipulating our perception, they reveal the body’s awkwardness, its monstrosity, its potential failure and finiteness, they create space for the possibility of the unknown, the wondrous, the ecstatic, the infinite. Collaborating with composer/contrabassist Klaus Janek, video artist Regina Teichs, installation artist Ricarda Mieth and photographer Sven Hagolani in a variety of presentational contexts, including photo and video media, “live art” performance installations in galleries, internet, public sites and performance in theatrical contexts, Curtis and Scaroni investigate homologous movement as a lens whose distortion, and or focus, yields insight into a variety of physical, aesthetic, social, and ethical realities. PRESS "..deeply thoughtful, entrancingly beautiful simplicity.......up close [...] is where this symbiotic ritual ought to be experienced. See it now if you can." - Rachel Howard, SF Chronicle "Should you go and see it? Yes. Symmetry is brainy, sensuous, and asks important questions." - Rita Felciano, SF Bay Guardian "The pair take the body at its most basic and vulnerable — naked — and transform its homely and altogether familiar form into abstractions both known and weirdly beautiful. As the dancers move, their bodies resemble pulsing, heroically fragile inkblot drawings in motion." –Ann Murphy, The Contra Costa Times "Does nudity, as much as it liberates physically, wrap us in an emotional shroud? Where does intimacy end and exhibitionism begin?... any dance that raises such questions must be taken seriously." - Allan Ulrich, Voice of Dance+ More details
