Normal people rely on their memory, Attention Deficit Disorder sufferers like me rely on pen, paper, smartphones, whiteboards and blogs. That’s probably why I write here, to back-up the things I might like to remember in the future knowing that I probably won’t be able to hold them in my mind as accurately as I would like to, to make sure there’s a detailed description of past events my future self can always go back to and reflect upon, to not forget shit I might not want to forget. Ultimately, dear reader, I’m not writing for you, I’m writing for myself and my poor brain. Thought you might like to know.
Anyway, last month I went to have a look at onedotzero_adventures in motion festival, which as you might know, offers a great opportunity to be inspired by some of the most innovative pieces of work across motion graphics, character design and animation; five days packed with an international selection of amazing cinematic and audiovisual endeavours that shouldn’t be missed. This time around I just had the chance to attend the wow + flutter 2011 screening, the festival’s signature programme, which this year presented 34 films from all around the world. Some of them might be familiar to you already, others completely new to your eyes, but in any case, here’s my personal list of favourites. Hopefully, you’ll find them as exciting as I did.
Luis Carone: 3D No Glasses
Alexander Geliner: One Minute Puberty
Hankins, Nieterau. van Kooten + Puijk: Mac n’ Cheese
Emil Goodman: Henry Waltz
Jonathan Monaghan: Dauphin 007
Avner Geller + Stevie Lewis: Defective Detective
Ioannis Christoforou: ToyLife
Brandon Vogue + Tim Wilson: Breakfast Interrupted
Erik Janson: WakYak
Alright, enough of this already. Go do whatever you were doing, I’m off for a Skype date.
