**Winner of Worldfest Huston International Film Festival 2017**
"Travelling Through Brush and Ink" is a stop-motion animation of a little modern man traveling through four significant ancient Chinese paintings, transforming himself into animals and plants, and becomes part of the nature. Each painting represents four important stages of landscape art in Chinese history. Based on the original paintings, we built the sets and animated little character inside- all frame by frame. The animation is the opening film of 2016 annual exhibition National Palace Museum Taiwan.

**2017休士頓國際影展動畫獎得主**
“筆墨行旅”故事敘述一個現代男子進入畫中世界展開旅程,在旅程中形變成動物或植物,與自然合而為一。動畫中的四個場景分別為四幅歷史上重要的中國山水畫,畫中景色被製作成真實模型場景,人物和動植物在其中全是逐格拍攝。
四幅畫分別為唐代〈明皇幸蜀圖〉、北宋〈谿山行旅圖〉、南宋〈巖關古寺〉及元代〈鵲華秋色圖〉,呈現中國山水畫講求可行、可望、可遊、可居之意境,為中國山水畫的歷代風格演變的代表。本動畫是台灣國立故宮博物院2016年度典藏展的開幕片。

AUTO NOM

https://vimeo.com/221472035

Oh hello lovely machine, emancipating yourself from function... You look adorable, you know? Yes dear, you were built to be autonomous, it said so in the campaign brief.
No rush – getting from A to B was never an exciting idea to begin with, for your kind. Dance yourself clean, pull your metal frame apart and let the sun burn through your circuits. Ride your autobiography, guided by the beauty of your code.
Fresh freedom smells like common place, and "authenticity" like a frivolous illusion of your makers. So your character was designed to be self-organizing: a beautiful homage to the combined effort of all of those minds that built you – considering your appearance being a quite sloppy imitation of life.
Regardless that those who started this are no longer around:
Still looking forward to your feedback.
What do *you* think?

Auto Nom offers an upbeat alternative on unexpected consequences of autonomous mobility. It is the latest work by ZEITGUISED’s new offspin f°am Studio, and part of a series of character animation narratives based on the personality of Autonomous Rolf. Written, directed and designed by f°am Studio, this fictitious self-driving classic german car gets under your hood with its freedom loving behaviour.

-COCOON-

What is this? I don’t recognise this
Pain broke in
And took it all
Took the song from the Springtime
And the dance from the flame
Took the noonday warmth
And the morning hush

Now the ground’s spilling beneath me
The ropes are uncoiling
The trees are leafless
The sky is torn
My breath’s a broken feather
There’s no beauty left
There’s nothing here for me I’m paper thin
I’m in a room of shadows and it’s caving in
I’m turning in circles
I’m giving up
The world is giddy
The sense is gone
The floor is an ocean
I’m sinking in

Where are You now?
Where is Your touch?
Where is the reason?
The answer?
The end?
Now I’m chasing Your shadow
And I’m grasping for questions
I’m calling out
I’m asking why?

Yet when I turn You turn
When I reach You reach
And in the searing burn
You wait for me
Dress my tears in kisses
Cradle my grief
Touch me in the silence
Hold me in the heat
And when the ragings rush
Drown me in defeat
I make my bed of dust
And you lie with me

Robot & Scarecrow

Set amidst the euphoric madness of a summer music festival, Robot & Scarecrow is a uniquely modern fairy tale about love. When a robot pop diva flees her keepers she runs straight into the arms of a lonely scarecrow desperate for adventure. They spend an incredible night together, caught in a heady vortex of music and magic:

Produced by Factory Fifteen and Nexus, the 15-minute-long Robot & Scarecrow was commissioned by social media network Vero and Michael Fassbender and Conor McCaughan’s production company DMC Film under a new partnership initiative aimed at supporting emerging directors. The CG-driven short, which stars Jack O'Connell and Holliday Grainger, was shot at U.K. music festival Secret Garden Party by cinematographer Luke Jacobs, and was directed by London-based director Kibwe Tavares (JonahRobots of Brixton) and produced by Daniel Emmerson (Assassin’s Creed12 Years A Slave).


Legio XVII

https://vimeo.com/216002023

Jérémy Cisse presents his new short film LEGIO XVII, directed during his 4th year at Supinfocom Valenciennes. 

The story was inspired by a historic battle of the ancient Rome, when the Germans clans join the rebellion organized by Arminius and push the Romans out of the Germania.

Germania, 9 ap. J.-C.

The story was inspired by a historic battle of the ancient Rome when the Germans clans join the rebellion organized by Arminius and push the Romans out of the Germania. This Roman army was the greatest army of this time, composed by three legions ( XVII, XVIII, and XIX ). Arminius had an army much less important and yet, he decides to attack the biggest Roman army on the German territory. He attracted them into the forest and took them in ambush.

All three legions were destroyed in what is known as the Battle of Teutoburg Forest, After their destruction, the Romans never used these legion numbers (XVII, XVIII, and XIX) again and never come back to Germania.

Escape, an animated short

https://vimeo.com/214537001

 

A cinematic poem about the world-changing power of invention, the short film Escape is the latest example of animated storytelling that showcases state-of-the-art Dolby technologies. Combining techniques such as miniatures and animation with the spectacular imaging of Dolby Vision and the moving audio of Dolby Atmos, Escape invites the audience to imagine and experience a joyous vision of the future. It is a story of persistence and passion that is intended to inspire individuals to never give up on their hopes and dreams.

After crash-landing on a desolate planet, a lone space explorer must find a way to make her new home habitable. The teenage heroine is an older version of the central character in our Emmy award–winning film, Silent, known there as “the Kid.” This intrepid character displays courage, passion, determination, and curiosity as she transforms the barren landscape she has found into a beautiful planet.

Singer Imogen Heap developed an original soundtrack that wraps the audience in Dolby Atmos sound, unveiling the lead character’s changing emotions as she faces the challenges of a dark, disturbed landscape and persists to transform it into a place of joy and delight.

Pandora’s Box

Pandora’s Box is an alternate definition of the greek myth surrounding Pandora and the container/box she is given. This reawakening envisions Pandora releasing time itself to rule as the cause, evil being the effect. Answering the curse of this relentless flow of less
time, we are forced to save and pass on through a transition from death to renewal. The 4th chapter honors the end of one time and the hope in the beginning of another. This is an alternate definition of Pandora’s Box – Time.
