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.

The Third & The Seventh: An Architectural Dreamscape

The Third & The Seventh: An Architectural Dreamscape

The Third & The Seventh is an artistic, soulful full-CG animated short film by Alex Roman.  The film illustrates architectural art from a photographic point of view, where the main subjects are already-built spaces, sometimes in an abstract way, sometimes surreal.  It’s the Avatar of the unheralded archviz genre, a video design niche that produces visualizations of architectural projects for firms and developers.

The film is an exploration of architectural design that exploits the freedom of 3D virtual space, treating the viewer to a new and magnificent way of appreciating one of the most heralded of arts.  The somewhat ambiguous title refers to a philosophy of aesthetics that proclaims architecture and cinema as the third and seventh pillars of art respectively.

There isn’t any plot, but the film is quite the piece of eye candy!
