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.

Bless You: Setting the Hungry Cat Amongst the Pigeons

Bless You: Setting the Hungry Cat Amongst the Pigeons

Bless You is a delightfully humorous animated short film by Philip Watts. The little film tells the story of an urban architect, who decides his architectural model needs to be spiced up quite a bit. Bless You ends up being a very cunning mix of traditional animation, tilt-shift photography and something pretty much like Flash. Ultimately, the film is great fun and executed with great panache.

Toy Stories: Home Is Where We Start From

Photography by: Gabriele Galimbert

Toy Stories, by Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti, captures a number of young children’s lives through their prized toys, artfully arranged around them in the homes where they live. It’s an intimate and revealing look at the world’s diverse cultures as experienced by children.

Toy Stories is the kind of work that traverses many levels: it’s a study in photography, socio-economic situations, anthropology and finally, childhood. To the extent that a child’s toys are viewed in terms of a means of play, their use as transitional objects opens pathways to the capacity to be alone and distinctions between “me” and “not-me,” as well as the use of illusion, symbols and objects later in life.

Years later, they will walk out from home looking for the world. For many, an optimistic idealism will witness the real world’s cruelties and heartbreaks, and yet some will find much room for hope.
