2. 555 KUBIK "How it would be, if a house was dreaming"

The conception of this project consistently derives from its underlying architecture - the theoretic conception and visual pattern of the Hamburg Kunsthalle. The Basic idea of narration was to dissolve and break through the strict architecture of O. M. Ungers "Galerie der Gegenwart". Resultant permeabilty of the solid facade uncovers different interpretations of conception, geometry and aesthetics expressed through graphics and movement. A situation of reflexivity evolves - describing the constitution and spacious perception of this location by means of the building itself.

Art Direction: Daniel Rossa -
3D Operator: David Starmann
Sound Design : Jonas Wiese
Realized with mediaserver

3. Lisel Jane Ashlock

Lisel Ashlock was born in Northern California and studied Illustration at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. In 2004 she moved to New York City, where she currently resides as a freelance illustrator. Her illustrations have appeared in CosmoGirl, Spin, Sephora ads, and Clamor magazine, among others. She has also illustrated such famous folks as Sofia Coppola, Bob Dylan, Arcade Fire, and Nico. I love Lisel's dreamy, soft style, but I have to wonder: Why do so many of her animals have a tear in one eye?

8. Heavy Metal Jr.

Heavy Metal Junior - A Portrait Of Pre-Teen Rebellion:
Hatred are a heavy metal band from Scotland. And they’re all under 13 years old. This hilarious film follows the band as they prepare for their first ever live performance. In the weeks before their show, their bassist quits, and they have to write some original songs to perform. One of the best parts of the film was watching their manager (the drummer’s father) show them some showbiz moves of his own. Along the way, we get some insight into band dynamics that wouldn’t seem out of place in a film like This Is Spinal Tap, except with parents as stand-ins for managers and girlfriends.

Heavy Metal Jr.
Directed by Chris Waitt
Produced by Dogtooth Media
