  11. PAINT ON PAINT # 1-8 28:43
  12. Portugal 2021
    Directed by: Vasco Diogo
    Production/School: Vasco Diogo

    Paint On Paint # 1-8 is an experimental animation film that brings together eight autonomous films, produced and made between March 2020 and October 2021, marked by the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and that follow some common structural principles: each film explores a different animation technique related to the use of color and digital brushes; each movie is 3 minutes and 33 seconds long; each film was set to music and sounded by a different young composer/sound designer, with the exception of nº8 which starts from a soundtrack created by Vasco Diogo himself, for which a montage was made using images from the previous films. As a whole, the film, with an eminently abstract character, expresses interior visions, concepts and perceptions linked to the ideas of contamination, recording emotions, freedom and enclosure, delirium and hope for a better world.



  13. FOR THE TIME BEING / Προς το παρόν 01:32
  14. Greece 2022
    Directed by: Joanna Poupaki

    Technique: 2D traditional animation, stop motion animation
    Music: Skiadereses
    Production/School: EINA University School of Design and Art of Barcelona
    Dialogue language: Modern Greek (1453-)

    A visual interpretation of the same-titled song “Προς το Παρόν” (Pros to Parón) in Greek, by the Greek music group Skiadereses, made as an animated video clip for the chorus of the song. “For the time being I hate you I keep trying to remind myself and I keep forgetting For the time being I hate you I keep trying to kiss you, but I turn the other way” Emotions of love-hate, of loss and nostalgia. Self-contradiction. Referring to someone else but at the same time referring to oneself. Crying. Overthinking. Drowning in one's thoughts. A giant head that can’t stop crying, at risk of flooding the world around it and drowning in the process. But there is still hope. The animals, the friends, the companions, the new family, together with the Head can bring change and create a new, slightly prettier world.
