The Sexy Naked Moon Goddess Contends With a Creepy Peeper

The Sexy Naked Moon Goddess Contends With a Creepy Peeper

Moon Goddess is a very humorous animated short film by Melanie Atwater,  a student at CalArts. The film presents a modern take on the mythological tale of Artemis and Actaeon. Descending from her heavenly perch, the naked goddess is interrupted each evening during her leisurely bath by the heavy panting and malicious grinning of a lecherous peeping-tom watching her from the bushes. So, what’s a poor goddess do?

Well, first she pulls out her bowstring and transforms the nasty creeper into a stag, but that doesn’t work. Luckily, the wily goddess has one or two more tricks up her sleeve. However, no matter what she changes the lurking pervert into, he still makes disgusting gestures and kissing motions in her direction. Finally, the sexy bathing goddess transforms the nasty creeper into something that distracts him from ever bothering her again.

Metamorphosis: A Deliciously Tasty Vengeful Feast

Metamorphosis: A Deliciously Tasty Vengeful Feast

The National Gallery in London has acquired three of Titian’s paintings based on Ovid’s myth of Diana and Actaeon: Diana and Actaeon, Diana and Callisto and The Death of Actaeon. As recounted by Ovid in Metamorphoses, the hunter Actaeon, chancing upon the chaste Diana bathing naked with her nymphs, is transformed by the vengeful moon goddess into a stag, who is then killed by his own hounds.

One of the works commissioned to celebrate this exhibition, Metamorphosis: Titian 2012, is a beautiful and mystical short film that provides a contemporary retelling of Titian’s Diana and Actaeon. Metamorphosis was directed by the talented writer-director duo, Tell No One, also known as Luke White and Remi Weekes. Instead of the bath scene that Titian depicts, the story unfolds at a countryside estate. The film does a tremendous interpretation of the original myth and painting; at times the film’s visual effects are so stunning they could be paintings themselves.
