The Piano: A Remembrance of Things Past

The Piano: A Remembrance of Things Past

The Piano is a widely acclaimed 3-D animated short film by Aidan Gibbons, a touching retrospective of an older man’s experiences, loves and losses in life.  His reminiscences derive from the evocative imagery created by his piano playing, the music of Yann Tiersen’s evocative and reflective “Comptine d’un autre été: l’après midi.”

Dr. Kill and Mr. Chance: Rockn’ Toll

Dr. Kill and Mr. Chance: Rockn’ Toll

Dr. Kill and Mr. Chance: Rockn’ Toll is a three-minute slapstick animated cartoon from Reality Toon, inspired by the  comedies of Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and Laurel & Hardy.  This is not the first time that works of fiction have blended animated cartoons with reality, but this one revolutionizes the genre.  In this hilarious short film, Doctor Kill is an ultra-professional gun for hire, using every available means trying to kill Mister Chance, who happens to be the luckiest man in the world.  Each trap that Dr. Kill sets always turns back against himself.  Every one of his attempts is a good excuse for a series of burlesque gags, of comic situations and the wackiest visual mind blowers.

Dr. Kill and Mr. Chance: Bad Luck for Bullets!

Dr. Kill and Mr. Chance: Bad Luck for Bullets!

Dr. Kill and Mr. Chance: Bad Luck for Bullets is a slapstick animated cartoon from Reality Toon, inspired by the slapstick comedies of Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and Laurel & Hardy. This is not the first time that works of fiction have blended animated cartoons with reality, but Reality Toon revolutionizes the genre.  What is so original in Reality Toon is the way it mixes two worlds to create a third one that is between real and drawn images.

In this hilarious short film, Doctor Kill is an ultra-professional gun for hire, using every available means trying to kill Mister Chance, who is the luckiest man in the world.  Each trap that Dr. Kill sets always turns back against himself.  Every one of his attempts is a good excuse for a series of burlesque gags, of comic situations and the wackiest visual mind blowers.

Dare: The Seductive Delight of Hidden Secrets

Dare: The Seductive Delight of  Hidden Secrets

Dare is an acclaimed short film directed by Adam Salky, an award-winning short about a closeted gay teenager and social outcast who is infatuated with his straight classmate. This is one of those short films that is about as realistic as they come. Dare really isn’t even about being gay or not being gay, it is about mutual attraction; it is about secrets; it is about two people on opposite ends of the social spectrum connecting, even if only for a while.

Following the success of the acclaimed short film, Dare has now been released as a full-length feature film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The film is available for download at iTunes here.
