Nightingales in December

This metaphorical surrealist tale is an allusion. Nightingales in December is a trip into the memories, and the fields of the current realities. What if the Nightingales were working, instead of singing and going south? Is the innocence the only savior of birds songs? There are no Nightingales in December… What is left, is only the history of our beginning, and our end.

Written, directed & animated by Theodore Ushev // Music: Spencer Krug.

Not About Us // Animated Short by Michael Frei

“A game of contrasts – light and darkness, black and white, a man and a woman. This symbolically approached film by Michael Frei invites us to think – do contrasts attract or not? If we have a counterpart in a parallel world, can we meet and become entwined in another world? Or are we supposed to maintain the universe in balance? The film is perfectly compact with minimalist sounds and music.”

Jazz That Nobody Asked For

Sometimes a song can get stuck in your mind. Become a little piece of unwanted music, that keeps looping for the rest of your day.

A short film by Benny Box // Animation: Pawel Binczycki, Rune Fisker & Esben Fisker.

Neurologists claim that stuck songs are like thoughts we’re trying to suppress. The harder we try not to think about them, the more we can’t help it. Jazz that nobody asked for is an ode to all those unwanted songs out there, that have nowhere to go.
