Nature Is Awesome: Kilauea - the Fire Within

Respect the magma
Arts • Views: 24,476

Vimeo

Available in 4K, The Fire Within is a visceral, artistic study on the Big Island of Hawaii’s hyperactive Kilauea volcano. I was born and raised on the island and all my life up until last year I hadn’t had the chance to come face to face with her incredible presence.

Many in Hawaii refer to the lava as ‘Pele’, the Hawaiian goddess of fire. After our incredible experiences at the volcano it’s not hard to see why so many islanders to this day see her as a living breathing thing. I wanted to capture her beauty and mysteriousness as well as her unimaginable power in the best way that I knew how. I wanted to just see it doing what it does. I shied away from any human interaction and turned the cameras to the fiery blood of the Earth.

This six and a half minute film is my best attempt at capturing what it felt like to witness molten rock slowly burning down a dense wet rainforest or to peer into a six-hundred-foot-wide lava lake at Kilauea’s summit crater. I’ve never been anywhere else on the planet that demanded as much respect and awareness for the natural environment around me. Her unexpected beauty and unsettling sense of danger were nothing short of humbling and put so much into perspective. Kilauea really did change my life.

Huge thanks to those who supported this film along the way, especially Wes and Stefan for contributing so much time and talent to make this thing what it is. Kilauea - The Fire Within was produced out of pocket and with complete creative freedom.

RIP, Leonard Nimoy

So long, Mr. Spock
Arts • Views: 22,580

Today we have to say goodbye to the man who breathed life into Star Trek’s Mr. Spock, one of the most memorable characters in the history of television — the great Leonard Nimoy.

President Obama pays tribute:

“Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed.” Hmm, that sounds kind of familiar.

Fantastic Four Reboot: The Official Teaser Trailer

Right wing freakout imminent
Arts • Views: 19,491

YouTube

As a kid, the Fantastic Four were my favorite Marvel characters, but the recent films weren’t really that great. So I’m glad to see a reboot in the works, with an apparent emphasis on the science fiction angle that attracted me to the Fantastic Four in the first place — and we can also look forward to a right wing freakout, because in this version the Human Torch is… black.

And speaking of right wing freakouts, first out of the racist gate is our boy the Ginger Avenger.

Right — because there are so few white men in the movies these days.

A funny New Year’s Day short from a Canadian artist/animator who goes by “Franco.”

In the wild Sonoran desert, the greatest criminal of the Far-West suffers the wrath of a four years old child after stealing her ice cream cone.

The Most Unusual and Twisted Short Film Since Eraserhead: “Self-Assembly”

So many trigger warnings I can’t even
Arts • Views: 29,153

Vimeo

I just discovered this amazing and unsettling short film by Ray Sullivan on Vimeo, and at first I actually hesitated to post it because it’s … disturbing. In some ways, it’s reminiscent of David Lynch’s weird classic “Eraserhead.” But with more realism and more goo.

Bereaved parents find a monstrous substitute for their dead son.

Directed by Ray Sullivan
Written by Garret Shanley
Based on the comic strip story & characters created by Gar Shanley & Cathal Duggan
Shot on location in Dublin, Ireland.
RED Scarlet-X.
