Roberto: Les sushis

Roberto is an Italian actor, comedian, director… No wait, that’s another one. Roberto is an alien dog doing a TV reportage on planet Earth. So even E.T. journalists are dogs.

In this first episode, Roberto will have to deal with a typical Japanese sushi restaurant. What you see is what he gets…

A pilot for a series, Les sushis is the work of Kindà, produced by Makiko Aoki and Olivier Defaye at Aoki Studio.

ANTHONY PENTA – You Ruined Everything

You Ruined Everything is the story of the morbid aftermaths of a morbid love(?) relationship. Combining a grotesque setup, an unreal photography and a non annoying voice over (a touch of Dexter, I’d say) the film manages to be funnily disturbing. Or disturbingly funny.

Starring Arthur Simone, the short film has been written, directed and edited by Anthony Penta at Pentaworks.

Manquer (a Bicycle Love Story)

Suzette is not just a birthday present for Alain (Sam Soliday). She’s the love of his life. So you might realize how saddened he was when Suzette gets stolen by Bob (Mike Klaport), the world’s most renowned maglia nera who thinks that it’s not him, it’s the bike’s fault.

Manquer is a short film made for the 48 Hour Film Project in 2007 by Milk, the joint venture of filmmakers Matt Daniels (now at Thinklab) and Sean Pecknold (now at Grandchildren).

TAKEUCHI TAIJIN – Stop Motion with Wolf and Pig

Fight for the things you love. Run after them, do all you can to get their very heart. And in the end you and them will be one and only thing.

This amazing stop animated short film is the work of Takeuchi Taijin: photos are shot, rearranged to compose the frame, and then photographed again.

I’m using the word photomation to point out those shorts that use this same technique, like PEN Story and Photo Finish.

Not sure what the story is here: Tarzan? Robinson Crusoe? Well, whatever, I’m just posting this delightful title sequence for a TV series airing on Belgian channel VTM.

Directed by Tom Willems. Animated at Engarde. Music by Brahim via Sonicville.

The actors have been shot on green screen, and then composited to achieve (along with the canvas texture) a painterly look, the main character being a painter.

Preview

While presented with a movie I previously posted (can’t remember which one now), a user of a forum expressed his dislike for “trivial” metaphors.
Instead, I think that movies based on simple (even childish) metaphors might have as much to say as any other movie, as long as they are good movies. And they can reach [...]
