Story of a life form which wakes up in an unknown mysterious world. As he go deeper, he slowly understands what kind of place it is. The world seems beautiful, but it lacks what the real life has. He has to make a choice to stay or not.
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.
This is one of the most fun videos I have had the honor of working on, and was happy to be brought on to this project as a writer, director of photography and 3D animator. Here is the popular electronic music artist, Giraffage. The video chronicles the story of four dogs that long for benefits that a life as a human would bring them. Their wish is granted and their dreams seem to be fulfilled… until the reality sinks in that being a human isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

This video was created from one hour of source footage shot from a bluff in San Diego the morning of Jan 21, 2014. I was interested in exploring the manipulation of water and to see how the movements and patterns from surfing interact. Watching surfing typically happens in one or two ways: in films/videos or in person standing on a pier, beach or bluff. In most surf films, the riders are so talented and the waves are so good it becomes an abstraction from the average viewer’s/surfer’s experience at an average break. On the other hand, watching in person can be very slow and depending on the swell there may be long stretches when nothing happens at all. This video is a playful attempt to split the difference and reveal just how much can actually happen in an hour in an otherwise nondescript surf spot with non professional riders. There are no CG elements, these are all real surfers and real waves with the time separating them removed. The video does not contain every wave that passed during the hour; I picked the best rides but otherwise tried to maintain chronology.

You might have seen this one, but I hadn’t before this afternoon. Reggie Watts makes fun of TED Talks — or does he? — and ends up giving one of the best TED Talks ever.
Andy Kaufman would approve.

On his birthday, Robert receives three beautiful old birds in his mother’s sitting room. Through his eyes, we visit the memory of this afternoon…tea is sipped , and between knobbly knees strange visions appear. The ladies weave an extraordinary tale of an emperor with no skin, and the boy himself, older and wiser, adds the finale… with a tail.
