‘The Viewers’ by Dani Salvadori

A man walking fast for bridges and alleys of Venice. The town is charming but the man does not care about this. He seems to have something important to do. Interesting effect of merger with images of human faces that seem to spy on the scene. The movie tells a story, perhaps a thriller. In just a few seconds and this short movie gives us the suggestion of a film.

The Viewers

‘Dim Sum’ by Karen Axeirad

The movie tells (with the technique of Time Lapse) the preparation of Chinese Dim Sum. The chefs cook at the table: prepare the dough, slice, working with their hands, cook the Dim Sum and then the lift is ready. The movie tells the whole process of preparation in a very interesting way. Well done!

DIM SUM Music:Hurry by Suicide Year

‘Sweet Sweet’ by Susan Blase

Images that flow and intertwine. The face of a woman and a dreamy atmosphere, very romantic. The music underscores this game veils, flowers, masks. A movie sweet and very pleasant. Interesting movie portrait!

‘Talking to Myself’ by Eleni Gemeny

A very interesting movie. The image is split and it shows a woman who speaks as if she were in front of a mirror. Techno music emphasises the surreal atmosphere of a woman talking and gesturing with herself. Great work!

Talking to myself

‘Train2’ by Philippe Schlossberg

Wonderful Blur effect on images of a train and a railway station. The red colour makes the atmosphere warm and alive. The movie is ethereal, barely visible, then he disappears. The effect is like a painting, as a beautiful picture of Turner. Very interesting video!
