Parigot: The Royal Servant’s Epic Battle Against A Homeless Hobo

Parigot: The Royal Servant’s Epic Battle Against A Homeless Hobo

Parigot (The Course) is an action-packed, comical five-minute animated short film by created by Mehdi Alavi, Loic Bramoulle, Axel Digoix, Geoffrey Lerus, and Alexandre Wolfromm at the French animation school Georges Méliès. In the streets of a Paris that is starkly divided between outrageosly fashionable and wealthy aristocrats versus crowds of poverty-stricken homeless people, the film depicts the mortal struggle of two characters from those wildly different worlds. A handsome-looking royal servant is forced to engage in a city-wide battle against a filthy homeless man helped by a large flock of determined pigeons. The ultimate stake? A deliciously appetizing gourmet supper. Drawn by those whom they serve into a conflict that is no longer theirs, under the mirthful spectators’ eyes of a merciless metropolis, who will end up triumphant in this epic battle? The rich, the poor…or maybe neither?

A Visionary Litany of Affirmation: A Short Commercial For Your Mind

A Visionary Litany of Affirmation: A Short Commercial For Your Mind

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness,
starving hysterical naked,
dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn,
looking for an angry fix,
Angel-headed hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection,
to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night.

-Allen Ginsberg

A Short Commercial for Your Mind is a tumbling, hallucinatory one-minute experimental/art short film by Daniel Mancina. A visionary litany of affirmation, the film presents a graphically cinematic rendering of something between art and life. “I’m talking to myself again, while my consciousness explodes. My mind is made up: There’s going to be trouble.”
