This Is How it Stars - Shahaf Ram (2014)

"Nesta obra Ram propõe-se dar conta de uma viagem à infância e sua inocência por meio de cassetes antigas de vídeo. O trabalho de rotoscopia realizado para algumas imagens captadas dessas cassetes é tão detalhado que nos deixa em dúvida se realmente estamos perante material previamente criado em vídeo, ou se é ilustração animada a imitar o movimento e os defeitos do vídeo. Uma abordagem que segue no resto do filme, por via de um uso barroco da texturização sobre o qual projeta verdadeiros excessos de exposição que depois dessatura, oferencendo-lhe assim uma tonalidade vítrea, tudo em busca de uma espécie de mundo irreal, fantasmagórico."

The Garden - E. B. Rhee (2015)


Proof-of-concept based on a new feature screenplay. The pitch: a sci-fi reimagining of "Paradise Lost". After learning that the sun is dying, a group of explorers set out into deep space in search of a new home for humanity.

Made for $30k with credit cards and small donations, the vast majority of the cast & crew are friends who worked on this pro bono. My writing partner and I first wrote a feature script, and in an effort to draw some attention to it, we decided to try and make this to give potential investors a tiny glimpse of what the movie could be like. The stylized visuals are obviously not final- you'll have to wait for the feature for that. We're indie filmmakers, and we couldn't afford to hire a VFX company, so we did what we could with what we had. For more info, visit www.thegardenshort.com
