Sight (2012)

July 30, 2013 0 sci-fi

Shortfilmweb Star Pick!

Created by Eran May-raz and Daniel Lazo as a graduation project from the Bezaleal academy of arts.

Starring Ori Golad and Deborah Aroshas.

Sight is a short film about a date taking place in the future – a future where augmented reality is as much a part of daily life as breathing and eating. Not only does computer technology govern home entertainment and idle leisure time (gaming, for example) but also activities such as cooking, eating – and dating.

In a world where everybody has Google Glass type lenses overlaying their eyes, our protagonist, who we learn is one of those behind this developing technology (Sight) uses his inside knowledge to his advantage when taking a pretty girl on a date.

For a graduate project, this film is astonishingly well produced. The cinematography and editing are excellent, and the CGI is of the quality we might expect in a film like Minority Report. The dialogue is tight, the script well-acted. A very entertaining and relevant film, especially today as we move ever faster towards a world which twenty years ago seemed unimaginable.

A delightful animated short about Dougal – a bird with a crippling fear – flying. His fear stops him migrating south in winter along with all the other birds, including Lucy, with whom he seems to have a burgeoning connection. Beautifully animated, this film is essentially about the rewards of facing our fears, and proving that the greatest rewards really do lie outside our comfort zone.

Created by Tom Jenkins

A delightful short about a selection of office toys who take over after lights out, commandeering a designer’s workstation to embark on a virtual road trip facilitated by Google Street View. Redolent of Toy Story, this film uses some truly innovative stop-motion animation techniques to create a heart-warming story, showing us an imaginative visualisation of an exciting world created from the mundane.

Directed by Philip Sansom and Olly Williams
Written by Philip Sansom and Olly Williams
Starring Napoleon Ryan

A solitary office worker apparently working after hours, rings around his eyes, exhausted-looking, has a problem with the photocopier. He then discovers he’s somehow created a portal to another dimension – a portal which can penetrate physical solid mass. Realising the possibilities of this new discovery, he starts to think of nefarious uses for the ‘black hole’, and is overtaken by greed, with unfortunate consequences….

Sky Burial (2013)

July 26, 2013 0 documentary

A short documentary filmed at the Drigung monastery in Northern Tibet, Sky Burial follows a Tibetan lama carrying out a rarely-enacted ritual, part of an ancient tradition for burying the dead. The body of the deceased is offered as a sacrifice to be consumed by vultures – an act of benevolence towards nature. The Sky Burial is a way of returning the no longer needed physical body back to the universe from which it came.
