Graduating from the Vancouver Film School ‘s Digital Design program, James Bartley and Jake Graydon have unveiled their final project in Invisible Wars: Redefining Aid. While the final website for the piece is still being constructed, in the meantime, viewers may notice gaps of stillness, which in final output, will be interactive opportunities for users to take part in the story.
Taking a break from his day job in architectural visualization, Gabe Askew’s fan video for Grizzly Bear’s “Two Weeks” goes in an entirely different direction from the official video directed by Patrick Daughters (embedded after the jump).
Gabe’s 2.5D opus is a delightful journey through countless faux analogue dioramas inhabited by paper-mâché-like creatures and flattened illustrations dangling from the proscenium. Gabe nimbly avoids the “say cow, see cow” approach, instead opting for metaphorical devices that mix naturalistic imagery with human forms gliding, battling and embracing throughout myriad environments.
Thanks for the tips, Jostein Finnekasa and Jeffrey Zablotny!
