Short Film: TARAH WHO? – HURT, 4min., USA, Music Video

Trying to write this, without letting a tear go.
Sad is not even the appropriate word.
Can’t even be mad, I don’t even have time.
Looking back the only thing that makes me smile is your speech, your words, your fake-ness… so ..
No, I’m not mad my friend.

Short Film: OUR MEMES, 5min., Malaysia, Music Video

D4c0ea6a37 poster

Music Video:
A mash-up of various of internet memes into this music video.

Lyrics:
I still remember the day we met in the cyber world
and became online friends
Following every single bit of you
Break ups – Graduation – Vacations and even shopping
I even knew you bumped into ghosts while in the public toilet! What a surprise?

Although I have never met you in real life
But you knew all my secrets
Including my ex-boyfriend’s plastic surgery
Many strange things happened in this tiny world
It’s unbearable to recall yet it’s so special
Such wonderful memories

We used to be so naughty and unpredictable
The old days where we were so crazy and superfluous
What past is past so let’s not talk about it
All the stupidest things we did together

(That’s our precious memory on the internet)

Although it’s wild and full with tragedy
You and I, we still be a part of it
It will be our stupidest and brainless and most romantic achievement.

Short Film: SOLDIER ONLINE, 5min., USA, Music Video

5c71080cf2 poster

Official music video for Old Robes (Subtle Soup Records) “Soldier Online” from the album The Spider and the Spectator.

Software Art / Realtime Cinema: generative, audio-responsive animation.

Who is the Soldier Online? A gamer, lost in their own exciting but unreal world? A drone pilot, far removed from the too-real destruction they are causing? A troll, wielding heavy words at a distance? Just a persistent brute, pushing forward despite desperate odds? Or perhaps, quite literally, a dog in heat? (On the Internet, no one knows you’re a dog…) It’s this mystery character that I animated, always running, but always fragmenting and re-forming, in a world alternately collapsing and exploding around them. The animation is generative and audio-responsive, meaning that it is not “edited” in a conventional, linear way: rather it is a piece of software that responds to the changes in the music to create an evolving visual narrative. Although you are seeing one recording of the video, in its native form it turns out differently each time it is played, influencing the narrative implications. The look of the piece takes its playful inspiration from motifs in 17th-century Chinese classical painting.

Short Film: OPEN THE WINDOW, 3min., Italy, Music Video

0da5c95f75 poster

The room of a hospital, two women waiting. The invitation to the soul to let go, the invitation to react for who remains.

A woman on a hospital bed, at the end of her life, is struggling to survive.
Another woman is waiting during those final moments.
In what is the close separation between the two figures, scenes of dailylife emerge in a dreamlike vision, in wich abandonment and loneliness are already announced, but even the prospect to be able to react. The hope is the vision of a new birth, the opposite of death that, at the same time, is linked to: birth is already a separation and in itself a death.

Short Film: LEADING ME STRAIGHT, 8min., USA, Music Video

617adc5f2b poster

In a dystopian and colorless universe nobody dreams, and nobody wins. Emotions are useless, as are abundant thoughts. A hive with marked paths to serve an unnamed queen.

He saw her. He touched her. She was the only one to break him from years of mechanic and automatic routine, if only for a flash. Where will that lead him? Straight to a new understanding, or straight back to hell?
