The first short this week is over 10 years old, but a classic from Zealous Creative.
In a world that judges people by their number, Zero faces constant prejudice and persecution. He walks a lonely path until a chance encounter changes his life forever: he meets a female zero. Together they prove that through determination, courage, and love, nothing can be truly something.
This second piece is just an incredibly brilliant bit of motion graphics, with an equally great voiceover. This is a great one to inspire the motion designers out there.
Do you realize how complex reality is?
This project attempts to give meaning on an existential level to the percentage of reality that we can conclude from. Trying to merge motion graphics with a philosophical point of view of our lives.
This one is a great abstract short utilizing mainly photography of reflected light from buildings, and cleverly edited.
with the zeal and energy
of an autonomous force,
moves through a city,
reflecting, refracting, abstracting.
This film was made mostly with in camera effects and with additional computer animation techniques.
Jonas and the Sea
This last piece caught my attention mainly for it's color pallette, and the animation of the waves, particularly in the night scenes. But, it also tells a good little tale of someone realizing a lifelong dream.
A film by Marlies van der Wel
Produced by HALAL
Jonas has dreamed of living in the sea all his life. But it’s not possible. Or is it?
Thanks for watching!
