Way Home - Music video

user

What I love in Stop Motion is, that you can give things new life, instead of throwing things a...

Way Home https://youtu.be/do4KXC6Gm_8

In 2018, Finally George created his debut album "Life is a killer" and asked me to create a video clip for the song "Way Home". There was no budget, but he gave me enough time, to make it on the side of my regular jobs and create something nice. I have my little studio at home and I collect and recycle everything I can find, so except from glue and lightbulbs, all the sets and puppets were made from found a ...

Kamasi Washington speaks on his short film submission "As Told to G/D Thyself" - Interview/Review from Sundance

The film is essentially a narrative music video hybrid that takes place over select songs from his newest album Heaven and Earth. If you aren't already familiar with Kamasi Washington's catalog, you should start to learn today.

Bucharest Short Film Festival

Bucharest Short Film Festival [BSFF]

Independent is the key word for Bucharest Short Film Festival [BSFF], as it is founded by independent film professionals, and focuses on independent artists in cinema, from all over the world. Bucharest Short Film Festival aims at recognizing, showcasing and spreading-out the most professional, most innovative, and most interesting fresh short international films, while always prioritizing independent short films.

Bucharest Short Film Festival will showcase some of the finest short international film in Narrative, Animation, Student, Experimental, Documentary, Fashion, Music Video, Stop Motion, Human Rights , Trailer, Webisode. We take to heart the amount of work put into each film. Therefore, the festival rules ensure that each movie is reviewed at least two times and well-debated by the jury. Some of the winner films will also be screened at other international film festivals.

Independent artists and their short films will meet an effervescent, and a quite experienced with cinema and film festivals audience, ensuring quality networking, and engaging opportunities, while the selected films will be determined by a panel of industry experts.

Bucharest Short Film Festival is building a new community of interest around international independent film professionals and film lovers, in the heart of one of the most interesting emergent capitals of arts and culture, a city that never sleeps – Bucharest.

The festival will run film screenings, preceeded or followed by artists Q&A, or networking side events, and, surely, parties, that all take place in various conventional and unconventional stages around Bucharest, as in cinemas, open spaces, and even summer theatres. Bucharest, you’ve heard about it, eventually – a city for young people. Well known for different things – like “Old Paris” nickname, in its bourgeois times, before the communism decades, or the world’s biggest parliamentary building [and one of the largest buildings of any kind], from its communism times new arhitecture, or the explosive contemporary art scene, and the also quite impressive underground arts and music and nightlife communities, in its current times.

MidWest WeirdFest

From the founder of Australia's two leading genre film festivals - A Night of Horror International Film Festival and Fantastic Planet, Sydney Sci-Fi and Fantasy Film Festival - comes a cinematic celebration of all things fantastic, frightening, underground, off-beat, alternative, and just plain weird... to the American Midwest!

The Midwest is filled with dark and mysterious byways, strange critters, and mythical beasties. And the great state of Wisconsin has more than its share: from the very real historical monsters Ed Gein and Jeffery Dahmer, to legendary cryptids like the Beast of Bray Road and the Hodag, to strange and wonderful places such as the Forevertron, a UFO landing port, and the mythical town of killer midgets known as Haunchyville.... It's the perfect territory for a festival that focuses on weird cinema from all around the world.

The festival team dreams of MidWest WeirdFest evoking the awe and chills of the sideshow alley of a dark carnival, a place filled with wonders, terrors, and forbidden surprises. The cinematic equivalent of a collection of pulp magazines and underground comix. A film festival that not only celebrates and showcases independent genre cinema - horror, sci-fi, fantasy, thriller - but one that welcomes all types of underground film. From experimental and avant-garde to offbeat documentaries. The festival's seasoned programmers can't wait to see what cinematic wonders await in MidWest WeirdFest's first season of festival submissions!

MidWest WeirdFest's main venue is the Micon Downtown Cinema, located in the welcoming college town of Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

Reel Indie Film Fest (RiFF)

A key music world calendar event, Indie Week is embracing sight and sound with a companion program – the Reel Indie Film Festival.

The second edition of the festival takes place October 14th – 19th, 2014 in Toronto, a filmmaker’s mecca and media launchpad for some of the industry’s brightest young talent. This year the festival grows to include 2 more features, shorts and music videos.

Black & White - International Audiovisual Festival

In May Porto opens its doors to the monochromatic aesthetics. The Black & White - International Audiovisual Festival, which receives video, audio and photographs in black and white, will take into competition works from all over the world.
With unique worldwide characteristics this initiative grew from the need to answer to the audience's growing sensitivity to black & white specificity, leaving behind the prejudice that relates this aesthetics with works of early cinema.
But the festival shows more than videos and photos in two colours, it also encourages the creation of sound environments referring to the black and white.
Over four days, several activities related to the audiovisual world will be carried out in addition to the competitions: artist talks, screenings and extensions from other international festivals. The nights will also be exciting with a broad cultural program.

Clean Shorts Film Festival

Clean Shorts Film Festival is an excellent opportunity for independent filmmakers to screen their films to a welcoming audience in a hospitable environment on the campus of Eastern Oklahoma County Technology Center, nestled in the wooded rural area of Choctaw, Oklahoma.

Clean Shorts is established for filmmakers who are open to producing films that are appropriate for a wide array of audiences, and rewards those whose creativity excels in various categories.

Clean Shorts thrives to create a climate that nurtures filmmaker networking and camaraderie with the added excitement of competition. Our goal is to stimulate the passion of veteran and aspiring filmmakers bringing them together to expand the growth of the independent film industry.

The inaugural Clean Shorts Film Festival will take place April 3-4, 2015, in the beautiful Seminar Center of Eastern Oklahoma County Technology Center in Choctaw, Oklahoma.

Of course short films are our specialty, but on Opening Night, we will screen one very special feature film (TBA soon!), including a filmmaker panel featuring cast & crew!

The Closing Night Festivities will conclude with an Awards Presentation, in which top films will receive accolades in several categories, including Student Films and Music Videos.

Don’t miss what is sure to be one of the coolest, filmmaker-oriented festivals on the circuit!
