sadescription (D-TOUR)3
5mn30   color   sil   2006   France
by Sylvain Legrand
Braiding of a video shots in mini-DV and re-arranged numerically in the aim of perceiving unsuspected spatial and temporal motifs. "D-Tour ô cube" is seeking to build, from the original film many times retouched, new architectures, to explore the magic of new geometries, to melt during the projection in the eye's spirit. "(D-TOUR)3" extends the previous research, by using a "magic candle", tries to crystallize asymetries of outlines and colors, to transform them, to metamorphize them. Development of a variant of "anorthoscopie", "(D-TOUR)3" oscillates between synthesis of movement and movement of synthesis.

sadescription 05.10.38
5mn36   color   stereo   2005   Sweden
by Anders Weberg
"05.10.38" examines the inner journey of a soul searching protagonist. We encounter a semi-surrealistic theme that, in a almost cliche-like manor, high-lights the ambivalence of the male gaze and gendered (dis)order. Through digital filtering effects, a certain suggestive aesthetic is conjured forth.The film deals with questions of identity and belonging and the blurring of boundaries. It is a sombre and suggestive reflection of life in the pyrotechnic insanitarium of consumerism freedom.

If looking for an objective explanation of a general, but relevant event in life in order to create an objective translation results in some cliche, suddenly a dot drops from the sky that says : no matter how clean you look at it my friend, in the end there is nothing more than just believe.

sadescription Arcs of Texture
6mn   color   stereo   2006   USA
by Ken Paul Rosenthal
"Arcs of Texture" is a lyrical, energized portrait of an urban landscape in motion. Underground trains, streetcars, buses and escalators embody the impressionistic beauty of architectural reflections like moving paintings. The face of the city is rendered as a light-infused intersection of people, glass, and concrete. The first part takes place underground, and is characterized by an audio collage mixed from ambient recordings of subway stations and trains. The second part takes place above ground and features an original score with gamelans, guitar loops, sampled car door locks and brake pumps.

sadescription boop-oop-a-doop
5mn16   color   stereo   2004   Sweden
by Sachiko Hayashi
”boop-oop-a-doop” is an observation and investigation of our daily life and plays with three different elements : creation of identity, media culture, and our own desire to be somebody else. By taking up two prominent figures in mass media culture, namely Marilyn Monroe and Betty Boop, the project focuses on how these three elements intermingle with each other, re-enforcing each element each time. Marilyn Monroe became an icon of the 20th century. She represented sensualism, sweetness and vulnerability, indeed all the characteristics that were and still are recognised as ”desirable” for a woman. She is the ultmate female whom both men and women equally adore and idolise; men wish to be with her and women desire to be like her. This ”wish/desire” is probably what keeps Marilyn Monroe still ”alive” as one of the biggest icons even 40 years after her death...

sadescription Cellular Activity : Bechet Vibrato Fragments
16mn   color   sil   2005   USA
by Neil Needleman
Jazz great Sidney Bechet’s deep, wide, passionate vibrato (one of my favorite sounds in the world) inspired me to set my camera swooping, swishing, and dancing over a wide range of surfaces, textures, and scenes. This frenetic camera movement is editing together via a strategy that I call Cellular Activity -a repeated, growing, and transforming pattern of very short shots (or cells). The result is a rhythmically intense and vibrant feast for your optic nerves.

"Elaine Drive" is an abstract exercise, which explores my anxiety involving the concept of infinity. This notion has haunted me since early child-hood growing up on "Elaine Drive" and it’s surrounding neighborhood. The impression developped in this environment help form my perceptions of this existential predicament. The images of "Elaine Drive" are organized to flit much like a stream of conscious motion in order to summon the experiences felt when dealing with this boggled idea of infinity.

The project in symbolical and at the same time arty effective and technically progressive form represents a psychological level of social shock, captured people after improbable acts of terrorism which became tremendous events in history of media show. The panoramic realization of the performance creates a metaphoric picture of a terrorist act. the imagery consisted of some positions showing a group of people standing in a dune landscape, failing down, lying in the natural landscape and standing up in a continuous repetition. the reference to 9/11 is almost implicit, the image poetic, deliberately vague and set in a slow sideway motion as if they are moving in the wind in the dunes.

The video is depicting a dark world of perception, trying to capture what is not there, breaking away from the concrete notion of sight and sound, and creating an amplitude of cognition, where attention is diverted to unexpected places - "As we move from the more conscious aspects of interpreting messages toward the more unconscious processes of perception we seem to be shifting our levels of abstraction from the more concrete towards the more abstract" (Gregory Bateson).

My films incorporate early film and painterly aesthetics, resulting in surrealistic imagery that is derived from my dreams and imagination. They exist in a theatre setting that is starkly visual, revealing a poetic and sometimes macabre world. I hand - crank my camera and hand - splice my films. Each film has my fingerprints all over it. To express my cinematic ideas further, I paint and optically print the film. Once the film’s structure is all the set, I reprocess the film using a variety of digital compositing and effects software. My artistic choices are intuitive, personnal and decisive. In both my films, "Magic Mountain" & "Las Hijas De Endor", audio is used to portray emotion...

sadescription Memento Mori
11mn   b/w   sil   2006   Greece
by Nikos Veliotis
"Memento Mori" completes a trilogy of short videos (the two previous being imago & obJet). "Memento Mori"’s material consists entirely of post-mortem photographs of children found on the internet. Post – mortem photography was a common practice, especially with children, in both Europe and America during the 19th and early 20th century. It is also referred to as "memento mori" photography. The video reflects the initial shock and grief experienced when confronted with one’s wounded inner child, one’s dark, frozen layers of pain and loss. It proceeds formally through the use of a simple kind of animation: multiple layers of still images in a varying speed pendulum motion. The animation generates a perpetual emergence figures. The video is silent; the environmental soundtrack of each specific screening is defined as the 'audio' of "Memento Mori.

sadescription Musee Hofstadt
2mn31   color   stereo   2004   USA
by Nika Offenbac & Devan Simunovich
"Musee Hofstadt" is an exploration of complex behaviors within biological systems, both real and simulated. Based on the Typogenetic theories of Douglas Hofstadter, the performance and its documentation are constructed around the string manipulation rules he developed to model the processes of genetic replication. Repetitive sets of deterministic actions are codified with Butoh style movements, incorporating actions in sets of 4 and 16. The characters positions directly correlate to the number of string terms and total instructions in Hofstadter’s system. This rule base system is also implemented programmatically in the postproduction process. Typogenetic algorithms were scripted in Perl and used to drive video processing in Jitter and to build generative 3D geometry in Maya.

Our piece is from these reels. We removed the complete ads and left only his deck edits. Using his footage, we have removed content leaving only the actual parts of him. We used only the deck edits, start ups and artifacts made with the AV decks. On these tapes he recorded TV ads leaving out the TV shows. We now have removed the rest and left only Paik.

by Galina Myznikova & Sergey Provorov
The youth of the modern society are geographically remote from the military operations that take place one the world’s periphery. But they are trying to simulate such psychologically extreme situations. In film a group of extremity-minded people are explicitly imitating a collective execution by a firing squad in a mountain. The sight of the extreme performance will remind a curious spectator of the horror of the formely endured nightmare, in which the spectator had to climb up and roll down a steep slope, as well as the punishment of mythic Sisyphus. The modern extreme games of youth are the very potentially useful work the outputs of which are useless in the framework of the existing society, and the work itself is endless. But as Camus believed, a struggle to reach the top is sufficient to fill one heart with hope.

by Yousuf Saeed
Deriving from the images and sounds of the contemporary Muslim culture of India, this short film celebrates the spirit of popular faith and its expression by the faithful. Using the allegory of a train journey, the song and the images from devotional posters weave a tapestry of the popular Indian Islam and its folklore. Among the most vibrant examples of popular visual art found in Indian towns and villages are the religious posters and calendars depicting deities, saints, and places of worship, sold at shops or roadside stalls near religious shrines, and adorned at walls inside homes, shops, or in worship-corners. The modern printing press and the mass production industry have transformed this art form into a full-fledged mass culture, characterized by its own popular aesthetics, the depiction of the folklore, and the marketing devices.

These still images are knocked together to give the movement, rhythm and echo necessary to refer to these times where Man has tried to find through research, science, philosophy and art the concept and sentiment of Totality. The editing image by image allows us to explain the connections that link each image, their contents and their symbols. Like a synthesis, through the prism of Totality, the film shows all these questions and researches about Man and his world.

by Rini Yun Keagy
This film is a dream that, unlike most dreams, occurs in the confines of a single space -a swimming pool- somewhere in history, memory, or imagination. In a series of vignettes, women and men emerge in parade or as unconscious automatons. They view, sense or speak to one another throught subconscious mechanisms, and they disappear and reapper as interchangeable entities.

sadescription Young Lions
6mn38   color   stereo   2006   Norway
by Eva Drangsholt
"Young Lions" is a dramatization of the Black Metal musician Varg Vikernes‚ description of the murder that he in 1993 was sentenced to 21 one years in prison for committing. The film is an attempt to break with the often explanative visual presentations of narrative films. In "Young Lions" traditional re-enactments have been replaced by exterior shots of a block of flats where the murder could have taken place, intermixed with filmic details intended to portray the experiences of the victim as the assassination progressed.
