Meditate in the lines from Daniele zanini on Vimeo.

In all the lines you’ll see, there’s a perception of direction. If you found a line on a piece of paper, if you rotate it, the direction changes. Then think about yourself: what kind of direction are you in today, in this present moment, in your whereabout? Is That direction a choice you made or are you living in a line of another one? We are a point in that line, choosing our fate, everyday, in every direction we have chosen or even if we haven’t chosen.

Caldera: Short Film

Caldera (2012) from Evan Viera on Vimeo.

SYNOPSIS
Through the eyes of a young girl suffering from mental illness, CALDERA glimpses into a world of psychosis and explores a world of ambiguous reality and the nature of life and death.

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT
CALDERA is inspired by my father’s struggle with schizoaffective disorder. In states of delusion, my father has danced on the rings of Saturn, spoken with angels, and fled from his demons.

Do-It-Yourself Animation With Terry Gilliam

Wondering how to make your life a bit more weird? Gilliam explains how to produce strange and wondrous things from household materials on the 1970s how-to series the Do-It-Yourself Animation Show. The rare television show which flips the tables by encouraging engagement, not passive consumption, of media, it was created and curated by British cartooning legend Bob Godfrey, who died this past week. Cartoon Brew explains:
The Do-It-Yourself Animation Show, which made animation accessible to the masses by taking the mystery out of the production process, was vastly influential and inspired an entire generation of kids in England, including Nick Park, who created Wallace & Gromit, and Richard Bazley, an animator on Pocahontas, Hercules, and The Iron Giant.
