Food: The Old Lady’s Ever-Hungry Quackers

Food: The Old Lady’s Ever-Hungry Quackers

Food is a wickedly humorous four-minute animated short film created by Maya Gouby from Belgium, with a musical soundtrack by Baptiste Thiry. The film tells the story of an old lady who come rain, come snow, come hail or sleet, every day makes her twisted way down a lonely road to a small lake in a deserted little park.  Once arriving at the lake, the old woman satisfies her cherished passion for feeding the ever-growing hungry ducks.  But maybe, for all one really knows, her intentions just might be much less noble than they appear to be.

*clac* *clac* *clac* *clac* *clac*  Clac is a wickedly funny two-minute animated short film by Julien Hazebroucq and Monica Beramendi, two students at Supinfocom in France.  Birds can be very annoying, especially when they mess with a living statue man.  They can be aggravating to the point of creepiness, particularly when they swarm down in massive groups.  But here, these nasty birds finally get what they darn well bloody deserve, after messing once too often with the living statue man….

Bird: Resplendent Birds on Glorious Pure White

Bird: Resplendent Birds on Glorious Pure White

Bird is an astonishing, thought-provoking 2 1/2-minute short film by the photographer and filmmaker Andrew Zuckerman.  His short film High Falls won the award for Best Short Narrative at the Woodstock Film Festival in 2007.  Bird captures its subjects through a contemporary and minimalist approach, with each bird showcased on a background of pure white that illuminates its color and plumage in a way that is rarely ever seen.

One reviewer wrote, “The birds, from the intimacy of the very small to the majesty of the very large, acquire a transcendental dignity, each one becoming a god in its own universe. The powerful white light transfers its own intensity to the birds and transforms them into mythical objects of paradise, newly resplendent in all their colors.

Birds on the Wires: Like a Bird on a Wire, I’ve Tried in My Own Way to be Free

Like a bird on the wire,
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.

-Leonard Cohen

Birds on Wires is a one-minute musical short film created by the Brazilian filmmaker Jarbas Agnelli.  According to Agnelli, one morning while he was reading a newspaper, “I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires.  I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit).  I knew it wasn’t the most original idea in the universe.  I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.”   He produced the short video by using the photo, the score (composed by the birds) and the music created from their score.  Agnelli has brought an idea of an everyday experience to life, which turns out to be a story very few people would ever think of telling!
