Its getting scarily close now folks, so here's another 3 very different films to get your animation juices going... 'ICKY', 'HEAD' and 'AETHER'.
The film: In the world of people with Rubik's cube head, there is a kid who is different from the others...
The filmmaker: Parastoo Cardgar
The film: A man decides to separate from his head. Unfortunately, his decision has dire consequences.
The filmmaker: Stave Levi. This is Stav's graduate film in animation, from Bezalel Academy for Arts and Design. Stav is 26 and intends to remain 26.
The film: A young artist, dissatisfied with her efforts to draw, opens a portal that absorbs her within the pages of her sketchbook. There, she journeys through her subconscious mind in order to find inspiration. She confronts inner demons, comes to terms with her fears, and celebrates the power hidden inside her. Told through a combination of 2d, stop-motion, and 3d animation, Aether is a love letter to those who have ever struggled with a creative block.
The filmmaker: Sabrina Chaney is a multimedia artist from Spring, Texas. She graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Animation. She enjoys combining different animation techniques to create experimental mixed media work. These projects may include stop-motion, 2D, CG, or all of the above using a variety of physical materials or software. She is also experienced in puppet fabrication, character design, and illustration. She considers herself a storyteller above all else, with a desire to communicate a message through visual media.
