Andreco’s Fake Religion animation

Ilana Kohn Reader Find

By Ilana Kohn in New Art on Thursday 22 October 2009

Presented only with stills from Italian artist Andreco’s stop-motion animation Fake Religion, I was really loving it, purely based on its stark, surreal imagery. I was pretty disappointed not being able to locate the actual video, but that aside, I simply adored the images. I really would have loved to have seen the video presented in the breathtaking setting of the Palazzo Re Enzo in Bologna. Such a beautiful contrast of aesthetics between the dramatic murals and vaulted ceilings of the Palazzo and the stark graphic imagery of Andreco’s animation.

Written and directed by Australian, Adam Elliot, the Mary and Max stop-motion animation is his follow-up to the Oscar winning 2003 short, Harvie Krumpet.

Zombie Zombie video tribute to John Carpenter

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in Video on Thursday 29 January 2009

This non-official video for Parisian electronics and drums duo Zombie Zombie is a remake of John Carpenter’s The Thing. Directors Simon Gisrel and Xavier Ehretsmann manage to retain the creepiness of the original using only stop-motion animated GI Joe figures. Pretty rad.

Robot Chicken Series 3

Xavier Toby Reader Find

By Xavier Toby in New Film on Saturday 24 January 2009

If slapstick, violence and sex get you off, you’re going to love this. It’s not so much a social critique as social terrorism, with every viewpoint and ideology attacked. Highlights are plentiful and spoofs of old cartoon series’, like He-Man, the Smurfs and Voltron, are standouts. Also watch for when Saved by the Bell is […]
