LET’S REDU: Rethink, Reform, Rebuild Education

LET’S REDU: Rethink, Reform, Rebuild Education

REDU is a great 2-minute CGI animated short film by Hunter Gatherer, which assumes a civic role by lauding efforts toward American education reform.  As usual, they make it look easy, but think again.  Looks can be deceiving.  While the informative, production shows signs of simplicity, the reality was quite complex.  With over 1,000 woodcut blocks, the labor intensive setup, staying true to the Hunter Gatherer studio credo, remains rough and improvised.  Through the mature, restrained nature of the work, the visuals are thoughtfully simple, while its message is made to inform.

Riva Starr: Talking Babies with Mustaches

Riva Starr: Talking Babies with Mustaches

I Was Drunk is a hilarious new smash music video by Riva Starr, starring talking babies with mustaches.  The video’s track is real dope (or dopey), although it’s not clear what I should call it…gypsy house maybe?  Anyway, to add a lighter note to your day, please take a listen and watch these mustachioed babies do their fantastic talking routines!

Spike Jonze’s I’m Here: A Hauntingly Heartbreaking Robot Romance

Spike Jonze’s I’m Here: A Hauntingly Heartbreaking Robot Romance

I’m Here is a 30-minute short film (HD full-version presented here) by filmmaker Spike Jonze, a film that’s haunting, beautiful, whimsical and overwhelmingly heartbreaking all at the same time.  I’m Here gives an interesting look at an alternative world, where robotic humanoids live and work alongside the regular human population.  The simple, elegant visual storytelling that Jonze employs is surprisingly affecting, although in a potentially dark way.  The film is full of originality and the kind of mysterious mythology that will have sci-fiction enthusiasts wishing they could spend more time in the world he created.
