Shorts

Human genius can be found in entertainment and artistry. These 3 shorts have managed to condense so much in terms of style, story and sting in mere minutes: they become so much more memorable than anything else! Quality and not quantity packs the punch. For me, these clips (developed with alot of time and people) actually extends and freezes time for me, every flickering frame burnt on my retinas and etched on countless neurons, detail and wit oozing out from the storyline.

1) KUNGFU PANDA DREAM SEQUENCE by James Baxter Studio

Watch it on MSN Movies 
If anything, the idea brought forward by this sequence is the dynamism. Earthy tones set the common base for a maximalist production with intricate inkwork, lines and Handicam-like movement.

2) CATCH ME IF YOU CAN OPENING SEQUENCE by Kuntzel and Deygas


It conveys that mystery of the late 60s with an air of playfulness and caper-cool. The geometry and stylisation of figures seems to draw cue from the sinuous linearity of Saarinen’s TWA and the noisy saturation of 60s advertisements. Bold, strong graphic design and composition!

3) ‘4 MINUTES’ MUSIC VIDEO by French duo Jonas & François

While the ‘storyline’ is rather lame, its the attempt to create a new look / atmosphere that makes this video so refreshing. The snazzy transitions, pop references and combination of elements leave behind a fresh new aesthetic.

boarding a chinook next week!

  2. ugh yeah i wish i could go but i have something on already!

  3. now that you mention it, the opening sequence of catch me if you can does seem to draw stylistic references to Saarinen! very apt description…

    i like how the cutting of sections through the people and objects in 4 mins literally provide a flow and transition of sorts, pushing the sequence foward forward.

    style abundance!
    nice post!
