Gala: Villagers Take Joyful Collective Action to Subdue a Giant Alien Object

Gala: Villagers Take Joyful Collective Action to Subdue a Giant Alien Object

Gala is a fantastical animated short film by admired filmmaker Mahiro Maeda, put out by the acclaimed Japanese anime production house Studio 4°c.  The film begins with a giant alien object crashing down in what looks like a traditional Japanese village.  At first, the villagers approach it courageously, trying to break through its outer shell by throwing stones and lighting fires.  Eventually the villagers turn away from their stance of fear and violence towards the alien object, and undertake the joyful collective action of creating music, which peacefully entwines itself with the object in order to draw out the alien’s ultimate potential.  Gala delights in being an anime with a multitude of approaches, cramming explosions, light, flight, transformation, music, history, and religion seamlessly into the plot.

Note: The film is in two parts.  Click through to part two upon the completion of part one.

Saving Christmas, or Maybe Knot!

Saving Christmas is a wickedly funny animated stop-motion madness, written, directed and produced by Rohitash Rao. Santa’s gotten into a little car accident and he’s little bit… uhm… dead. But not to worry. A group of aliens is out to save the (Christmas) day, delivering all the presents. Obviously, they’ll not be back for the next year.  So, this was the last Christmas ever.
