    A still life that comes to live. In the beginning of this short film we see a landscape photo, but very soon we see movement, the landscape starts to live. To achieve this I have used animations, photos and video. In the beginning of the film the material mainly contains images made close to the place where the first photo of this film was made, but towards the end we see more and more “ imported landscapes “. Images from totally different landscapes, made on totally different locations. The main subject of this short film is the still image that comes to live and mutates in to totally different landscapes, but where we also always will return to the still image we saw at the start of the film. I did chose a title in French, because in French the word for a stillive literally means dead nature.

    Animation: Sam rolfes
    Technique: Real-time in game engine
    Music: Distrust-- Lunice ft. Denzel Curry, JK Flesh, & Nell
    Dialogue language: English

    Choked and pinned with glowing scraps of regressive netscum, a body thrashes and steps through the digital visual violence as a familiar green figure hangs splayed, pierced by a spear, entrails out, while Denzel Curry and Lunice Facetime in to watch. Distrust was recorded live within a game engine, similarly to Rolfes’ previous videos for Amnesia Scanner, Danny L Harle, & his clips for Rihanna’s VMA performance. Performer Aarron Ricks twists and flows through the digital environment, stretching and manipulating the violent imagery while Rolfes triggers transitions, lights, and deformations.

    Dialogue language: none

    We live, die and repeat. Animation “Metamorphose” is the story of beginning and end. The unending cycle of connections and moves which repeat themselves over and over, same as our life. This animation shows this idea in different reality every creature lives its own life and yet influences on others. This animation shows our everyday life from different angle. Every one of us have a specific sequence of life: We wake up, work, go to sleep and wake up again but most of the time we do not realize that our move somehow influences on many different lives. It is too hard to understand why killing butterfly in the past will cause catastrophe in present. “Rock Matrix” shows this idea in the simplest way. Simplicity of this animation gives people ability to examine the idea of life cycle in much more details, understand it in their own way and just think deeply about our daily routine.
