experimental shorts

A very small preview for my thesis film, Tuna. It is the dramatic tale of a young man’s struggle with a tuna sandwich, based on my own experiences with tuna sandwiches. 

If you are in the Beverly, MA area, my film will be a part of my school’s animation department’s collaborative senior showcase BYTES at The Cabot Theater, May 10th, starting at 5pm. You can come see our projects, which include video games, animated short films, and experimental short films. Also snacks.

The Infinite Wrench Week #8: STARBUCKS UNICORN FRAPPUCCINO HEAVEN

STARBUCKS UNICORN FRAPPUCCINO HEAVEN
© 2017 ryan patrick welsh

Two Neos stand SLC and SRC. Behind their backs they are holding a Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino, probably pretty melted, which is great. At GO they reveal the beverage and hold it out in front of them with a straight arm. Throughout the piece they must keep their arm extended and straight.

GO.

How do i get better at making films ?

Hello again @brwn-girl (shoutout to you for putting so many great asks in my inbox!)

The short answer to your question is to make lots of films. Long, short, fancy camera, crappy camera, classic story structure, experimential… doesn’t matter. Just make films that mean something to you. Even if you have a bad camera and your actors are unwilling or reluctant friends and family, make something because that is the only way you will improve.

But don’t just make films. Make films that challenge you in some way. Question yourself, the world around you, your ideology, life… Challenge yourself technologically. Use new equipment, new cinematography styles, new storytelling methods, new editing techniques, new sound design…

There is a book called Outliers that discusses success. In it, the author claims it takes 10,000 hours for someone to become an expert at anything. This is just as applicable to filmmaking as it is to any other job. You have to have experience and learn from mistakes if you want to get better at anything.

The second part of this answer is to study other works of art. Don’t just watch mainstream Hollywood films or rewatch the same television show for the fifth time. Watch a foreign film, an indie film, an experimental film, a short film, an innovative film. Ask yourself why you like a film. Ask why you don’t like a film.

Read books and essays that discuss philosophy or psychology (in regards to art or to life in general). Apply what you learn to the stories you want to tell. Read or watch interviews with accomplished filmmakers to learn why they make certain films or why they have certain styles. (Better yet, conduct interviews yourself.) Mimic filmmakers you admire, but then find your own unique style. Learn about the world, about life, about people, and about yourself. If you want to make great films (or great art) it should say something about reality. So explore and question life as much as you can so you can do the same in your films.

Keep creating,

Jules

takedasangel  asked:

In your opinion what films do you consider to be the modern day video nasties.....?

Ah, now this is a great question.  I still plan on touching upon the areas of extreme cinema that I haven’t yet covered, but I feel like this narrows it down even further to those which would certainly be the modern equivalent of yesteryear’s “Video Nasties”.

I want to say that “modern” would equate to after the Video Recordings Act of 2001, but I may sneak in a couple from the mid to late 90′s just for the hell of it (note: I won’t be adding any films that were previously covered here under New French Extremity, Tokyo Gore Style (which is really too comedic for consideration anyway), CAT III horror, or avante-garde/surreal/experimental/short format, as the list would become far too long).  I will, however, be including a couple of choice films from the list of shot-on-video horror.  Some films will be grouped together by director, as some directors push the envelope with most of their work.

In no particular order:

  • Antichrist (2009)
  • A Serbian Film (2010)
  • August Underground (2001), August Underground’s Mordum (2003), and August Underground’s Penance (2007)
  • Green Elephant (1999)
  • Funny Games (1997)
  • The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) (2011)
  • Cannibal (2006), Meloncholie der Engel (2009), and Reise nach Agatis (2010)
  • Schramm (1993)
  • Slaughtered Vomit Dolls (2006), ReGOREgitated Sacrifice (2008), Slow Torture Puke Chamber (2010), and Black Mass of the Nazi Sex Wizard (2015)
  • The Burning Moon (1992), Premutos - Der gefallene Engel (1997), and Dard Divorce (2007)
  • Ostermontag (1991)
  • Nekro (1998)
  • Man Bites Dog (1992)
  • Pig (2010)
  • Fetus (2008)
  • Schizophreniac: The Whore Mangler (1997)
  • The Necro Files (1997)
  • The Bunny Game (2010)
  • Scrapbook (2000)
  • Murder-Set-Pieces (2004)
  • Family Portraits: A Trilogy of America (2004)
  • Snuff 102 (2007)
  • Burglar from Hell (1993)
  • Red Spirit Lake (1993)
  • Violent Shit III: Infantry of Doom (1999)
  • Urban Flesh (1999)

Lastly, I don’t think they can be considered “movies” as much as video mixtapes, but I think I’d be remiss not to mention Most Disturbed Person On Planet Earth (aka MDPOPE: The Movie), and its sequel.

I feel as though this should be a lot longer, but there are honestly several notebook pages filled with potential entries that I haven’t even researched yet, plus many more from earlier decades that could have easily fit the bill as well (not to mention non-horror films based around disturbing subject matter), so there’s still quite a bit of soil for me to till in the realm of extreme cinema.
