.Ok, I know is bit romantic but u know when u’re not coupled then u search for d universal love especially when ur stream is spammed with love messages, cards, pics, music etc. I found this video interesting because it’s speak in one naive, gentle way. there is person that fits us perfectly, even if he is not  here in d moment or he’s here but still not aware of ur presence and intense feelings. enjoy ur day people who love and are loved, cheers with red wine from one warm house.

Kien Lam made Show Your Love, a special Valentine’s Day video that shows that love is a universal message. You may remember his around-the-world time-lapse film, Time is Nothing, that we featured recently.

Love is universal. It is blind. It transcends language. How will you show your love on Valentine’s Day?

:I like this piece of art, short video. .. in d last few hours I watched maybe more then 10 times and I think it deserves to be here as part of my blog. Dark, mystic, slow motion, experimental . .. only d first impressions after u watch it.

Compiled over the past year, the duo’s film work traverses the wilds of April Base, the Wisconsin studio of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. Trundling through rich forest landscapes and ephemeral, sculptural environments, the films’ pure visual moments mesh with graceful digital effects, creating entangled shrines and smoke-filled twilights. At its root, the work deals with themes of space–both external and psychological.

:hello blog lovers,

.this morning I shared on my fb picture that speaks a lot about d humanity and d future of our living [if we read books hopefully in positive way]. I really more respect people that not only have books in their houses but also read them, besides d message/ quote from John Waters. But I’ll not speak about d picture because hits d aim from position that I practice indirectly that what I want to share here is + one animation, short one speaking again about d books, in one magical, surreal way, that brings awesome perception of d books as they really are. I found this via Jordan Dukov, friend of mine that not rare knows to surprise me with d content that he share on his profile.

I like d first part of d message on d photo d most so I will mention it here: we need to make bo.Oks cO.ol again!. ..and that’s right. Not so often we read good content on internet as always in d books. I spent daily at least 2 hours in reading, and d animation that I saw just shifted me in d world of books that opens my fantasy and fulfill my heart.

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

.
[from vimeo] Inspired, in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, “Morris Lessmore” is a story of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor. Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story. Using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation) award winning author/ illustrator William Joyce and Co-director Brandon Oldenburg present a new narrative experience that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals. “Morris Lessmore” is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.

“The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore” is one of five animated short films that will be considered for outstanding film achievements of 2011 in the 84th Academy Awards ®.

Monster.S for soliDAR*ity

3 Comments

For the exhibition that took place in the Maison de la famillies in Metz I decide to create art piece that will be mix of the three techniques/ workshops that were actually part of the youth exchange connect with contemporary art called Voice of Art.

Voice of Art was a youth exchange organized by the association Together, on my blog for my stay in France you can find other articles connected with it. In this exchange participants from 6 countries were able to learn more about contemporary art and also to create part of their ideas participating in three workshops: street art, art installations and multimedia.

The street art workshop was leaded by me and can find more about here. The other two workshops were leaded by Bruno de Sario, Italy [art installation] and  Agnieszka Piatczak, Poland and Ramses The lonelywarrior, France [multimedia].

I have some expirience with video/ multi media and installations from before and I felt perfect opportunity to try to play with this three forms and create mixed media work that will be connect and will express the way how I accept and understand the topic of this excange ‘solidarity’

The last period I use my facebook status to write some shorts about monsters and monster mood and somehow I find connection between the monster.s and solidarity. I try to show the main feelings that I have when I think about solidarity. I made monster[s] that [are] push[ing] for solidarity.

Monster.S for Solidarity

In the painted form I played with graff, stickers and expressionistic techniques. The stickers that I made before I apply in the wooden board same as sometimes I put them on the walls around the places where I travel.. ..

In the installation I try to use as less as possible, because one of the aim in my works is to show that a lot of things can be created from low budget materials, most of them organic and easy for recycling.This ecoLogic.al way of creating art in my eyes is the future of the contemporary design, art & living.

In the short conceptual and bit experimental video I give a soul to the monster that I already have it in 2 forms..that comes to my concept like finishing the circle of 2D, 3D with bringing the monster in moving and giving him life. I create monster with feelings..

The combination of this 3 forms bring my idea and concept in final result in which the message is clean..if u understand it good if not again good 🙂

DOKUFEST GROWS BIGGER AND BIGGER

opening night at Dokufest

This year, the opening ceremony announced a spectacular issue of the festival. It began with the biographical story of famous African musician Youssou N’Dour and the movie “Youssou N’Dour – I Bring What I Love.” This is a story full of love, the hope for change in our current global reality, a kind of utopia, which is accessible to anybody. I believe this is also the purpose of DokuFest – to generate positive art and experience.

This year, the program is full of movies that leave you breathless and which are similar to each other in being screened at festivals with a high reputation. I would not pick favorites because the whole line-up of movies from all categories is filled with titles which are well-known in the documentary film scene. We can see spectacular movies in the International Docs and International Shorts categories, which are, in my opinion, the categories that represent more alternative filmmaking. Through these categories, we can see communication and messages which make the so-called Seventh Art transform moving images and sound in stories that can make us discover new ideas.

In Balkan Docs, there are new movies from the everyday life and reality that all of us in this region live in. The titles which show up on this year’s DokuFest program for Balkan Docs are some of the best ones. Among these titles, we see the best recent productions coming from Macedonia, Serbia, Kosovo, Turkey, etc.

I was pleasantly surprised by an additional category in the program, called Green Docs. This category makes the festival unique in raising the awareness of the guests and visitors in relation to ecological problems which our planet Earth is facing. Movies about the environment can change the world. Like youth worker for me Dokukids is also idea that give us the chance to see trough the eyes of the kids who share their ideas without limit in the expression.

I am happy that this year I had the chance to come to the festival again, and in this way to notice the development it undergoes. The progress, compared to last year, is evident in the wider range of films on the program in all categories, as well as in the number of visiting guests who share their work and art in film. Having open-air cinemas is a great concept, which functions well for this festival. The access to cinema is easier for all the people who live in Prizren, love movies, but during the year don’t have the opportunity to watch them in a cinema. Together with a stroll around town, anybody can watch a film at an accessible price, which is even symbolic. Communication between directors and audience is easy and open because both groups of people are at the same place. Now that the festival is nearing its end, there is one movie which I recommend and which will close Dokufest, namely “Waltz with Bashir.” It is a pleasure that I was invited to the festival this year as well, and I wish DokuFest all the best next year as well.
