  1. Logo Disaster Movie: A fabulous short animation that wrecks Hollywood

    I was impressed with narrative, sound design and the mise en scene that sets this movie apart. And I am a graphic designer who likes logos.

    From the vimeo description posted by Human: This is a short film that was directed by the French animation collective H5, François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy + Ludovic Houplain. It was presented at the Cannes Film Festival 2009. It opened the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and won a 2010 academy award under the category of animated short.

  2. Tilt Shift Love: A short homage to Bangalore in miniature – Little Bangalore

    I met Anup Kat of 1stDecember at Limoge, France while we were there to participate in a 24-hour web design challenge. Anup and his team are a smart group of youngsters with a great sense of aesthetics and a cohesive worldview. They are the new wave DIY, dirty-my-hands creative team and this homage to Bangalore is a perfect example. So, watch this lovingly made voyeuristic short on Bangalore – a sunny cheerful Koyaanisquatsi set in our own beantown. Incidentally, 1stDecember did win the Limoge challenge.

    In their words: “Every great city in the world has a story that has been passed down the ages. The garden city of India is one such city. A home to countless people from all over the country, making a lifetime of memories. It may not be the best city in the world, but the spirit of its people is unmatched.

    This film is our take on the Bangalore we have grown to love. A tribute to our city and its people. This is the story of our ‘little Bangalore’.”

    Kudos Atul, Anup and team.
