The Mystery of Flying Kicks

Murder, sex, drugs, art, politics… sneakers hanging on telephone lines have become a powerful urban symbol, inspiring genesis theories both hilarious and sinister. In an effort to get to the truth once and for all we asked the people of earth to help us solve this mystery. Using an on-line call out and a phone message bank, this documentary was made entirely from donated photographs, phoned-in theories, video, vlogs, and animation • Directed by Matthew Bate.

The Mystery of Flying Kicks is the result of a unique digital collaboration between the filmmakers and the international public.

_The chapter

Ricardo Rousselot is a designer and calligrapher born in 1936, at “El Chaco”, Argentina. After several years living and working in Chicago and a few more at Buenos Aires, he was seduced by Barcelona, the modernism, the sea, the mountains… And that was 38 years ago.
This documentary talks about how ink as the path, never ends if it’s full of passion and love. This is the story of a restless pen that travels between the purity of art and it’s industrial application … as bluesmen sing, “I’ve got calligraphy”.

Direction: Alex Guimerà – Executive production: Flextatowa&Guime – Script: Alex Guimerà & Juan Pajares – Photography&Edition: SeveralStudio – Music: Fábel.

The Birdman

With CDs, VHSs and old cassette tapes stacked head high, Rainbow Music is a hoarder’s paradise. However, its quirky owner, known as ‘The Birdman‘, knows exactly where everything is. Amidst the Starbucks and Subways popping up on every corner of the East Village, Rainbow Music maintains its mom and pop feel, and is a hidden gem to its patrons. Due to the weak economy, online music sales and pirating, and the changing neighborhood, this charismatic curmudgeon is struggling to sell what he has in his store. Despite these challenges, The Birdman carries on to his own tune.

Mirror City Timelapse

“Mirror City is a visual story through some of the great American cities: Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. These clips were all processed from their original form, into the kaleidoscopic visuals that you see in this video. Many people visit these large cities every day, and all of these places have been shot and filmed, but I wanted to emulate these urban landscapes in a way that nobody has even seen before.

The video starts off with simple mirrors and recognizable architecture, as the video progresses, so does the visual stimulation, showing the real abstraction of the piece.”

Directed, Filmed & Edited: Michael Shainblum // Music: Bassnectar – Butterfly (Ft. Mimi Page).

e-David Robot Painting

“e-David, our painting machine, uses visual feedback to create different kinds of paintings. We equipped a standard robot with all necessary means for painting. Five different brushes can be used, color can be selected from a repository with 24 colors, brushes can be cleaned and colors can be distributed precisely on the canvas.

The machine watches itself while painting and decides indepentently where to add new strokes. This way paintings are created that are not completely defined by the programmer but are the result of a visual optimization process.”
