anexperimentalviralvlog - the movie remix # !
Directed by Vasco Diogo
Produced by Vasco Diogo
A unique short experimental remix of 15 vlog episodes, originally posted on youtube, based upon a reflexion on identity, manipulation, truth and beauty, that blurs popular influences with performance video and video art processes and ideas. Self-representation document made with a DIY spirit and a urge to work on basic communication principles, such as the confrontation between the artist and the viewer and speech awareness. The audiovisual manipulations function mainly as an expression of repressed emotions in the context of a confessional aesthetics. This is a remixed version of the original video: "anexperimentalviralvlog the movie", 2015, which continuous to be the first autonomous work that appropriates the material I posted on my youtube vlog.

Directed by Kamila Kuc
Produced by Kamila Kuc
Batum takes as its starting point the experience of near drowning in the Black Sea of Batumi, Georgia. As such, the film is induced with a desire for an auto-ethnographical self-interrogation. Images that feature in the film are a constellation of personal and prosthetic memories, acquired through historical and cultural knowledge as exemplified by the poems of Osip Mandelstam and Joseph Stalin, among other cultural tropes. Batum explores certain displacement of identity that emerges when we encounter past experiences. It seeks to experience how memories become fiction once recorded and how in this process of recording, the camera itself held a mysterious agency.
Experimental, 9 mins, United Kingdom

before chill
Directed by Sylvia Toy St. Louis
Produced by Sylviatoyindustries
This movie is a video poem about aging/the changing of the seasons. It was inspired by the signs that winter is about to happen here in San Francisco, this town that "has no seasons." Just like everywhere else that I've lived, however, there is a pungency, a dryness in the whispering breeze that will grow into a raging wind in a few weeks, a stillness and a beautiful pearlescent sky. I shot this movie on my way home from dayjob as I the scenic route through San Francisco's beautiful Civic Center. I edited this movie in first-gen Splice on my IPhone. What a lovely way that was to begin twilight.

HyperZooming through Hallstatt
Directed by Geoff Tompkinson
Produced by Liz Tompkinson
The beautiful historic town of Hallstatt is a Unesco World Heritage site in Upper Austria. It is visited by many thousands of tourists each year but perhaps none of them get to see it quite like this. As if on the back of an invisible insect we fly around the sites of this wonderful town in one continuous journey passing through buildings to emerge in different parts of the town, finally ending up on the new viewpoint from Rudolfsturm perched high above the ancient town square. Those of you who know Hallstatt, as well as anyone who watches the video carefully, will appreciate that I have applied a little artistic licence to the geometry of the town in order to seamlessly link the locations. The footage was shot over a two day period but the post production, of course, took considerably longer.
Experimental, 3 mins, Austria

You're Just Projecting
Directed by Marinah Janello
Produced by Marinah Janello
Shot in Paris, and later projected in Rhode Island onto walls and objects, "You're Just Projecting" is an intentional fragmentation of the female body wherein legs, breasts, stomachs hands and feet have been placed in or near pieces of architecture that give the illusion of being separate from an actual body to create a sense of entrapment. The concept of the popular image of women in the 1950's-60's, and today is repurposed by altering and satirizing the male gaze which is only accentuated by the incorporation of the male voice.
Experimental, 3 mins, Paris, France
