Dry Grass In A Blue Vase // M Is For Mactation

Though the film has synopsis, consider it as a visual poem. Like a photograph – moment in time, without ending or beginning, a glimpse of episode of someone’s life. A fading dream.

The story follows an old lady whose husband was a member of a secret guild, the sacred worship.

For centuries it guarded the closed Door in a silent, isolated house at the end of the world. The Door was sealed so long ago, that no one can remember what was hidden behind it.
After the unexpected death of her husband, she was the last who knows about the secret, that had been kept for centuries.

Written, directed, animated, sound edited by Maria Ivanova.

Mactation – The act of killing a victim for sacrifice.

Mitch Stratten :: OCP

Mitch Stratten’s 5 minute film OCP is the culmination of two years of exacting work and Stratten’s most ambitious project yet. Despite its surreal narrative, the visual language of OCP feels strangely familiar, and viewers will recognise the influence and techniques of cinema and film-making. Stratten’s accompanying soundtrack is integral to the piece and informs the viewers response. “I want people to experience this in a really immersive way,” says Stratten, “ideally wearing headphones with high volume.”

The boundary-blurring imagery of OCP seamlessly combines physical performance, large-scale mechanical engineering and computer technology. Stratten: “OCP is a unification of the physical and psychological in a very literal way, exposing concerns in our perception of belief.”
