Brave New Old: Isolation, Loneliness and Change in the Modern City

Brave New Old: Isolation, Loneliness and Change in the Modern City

Brave New Old is an experimental 3-D animated short film created by the London-based motion-graphics designer Adam Wells. Despite its deceptively simplistic style, this little film is a clever piece of experimental filmmaking.

The film appears to take off from Aldous Huxley’s dystopian visions in his 1931 Brave New World, a frightening picture of the future with subjects like corporate tyranny and behavioral conditioning. Brave New Old is a contribution to the new body of experimental animated works that explores isolation, loneliness and change in the modern city. From chance meetings to poetic musings on lost loves, and from meditations on the decay and decline of industry, to the disorientating nature of modern urban living, this is a chance to explore the city experience through truly unusual animated cinema.

LGFUAD: A Grotesque Rampage of Jaded Sex, Drugs and Violence

LGFUAD: A Grotesque Rampage of Jaded Sex, Drugs and Violence

LGFUAD (an acronym for Let’s Get Fucked Up and Die) is an award-winning four-minute experimental animated short film created by Kelsey Stark. The short mixes a variety of animation styles, primarily focusing on an unwieldy hypnotic medium that looks like an organic crayon drawing. In the film, a young woman eats pizza and relates a series of surreal, richly psychosexual and violent stream-of-consciousness stories about how cool it is to be a ghost.

LGFUAD characterizes a jaded, dissatisfied personality type, exacerbated by a hipster-emphasis on cool and from growing up in media-drenched suburban environment where one is taunted constantly by what one doesn’t have, or hasn’t experienced. This is a controversial, love-it or hate-it film; LGFUAD is fresh, personal and conceptual, but edgy, uncomfortable and uncompromising all the same.
