NOON is a scene from a completed feature screenplay. The short sets up the world’s unique premise and introduces our protagonist, Gray, a coyote numbed to the cruelty of the world and his part in it. We watch Gray struggle to salvage what humanity still exists within him when profit is pitted against morality.
Today’s cinema is full of magic worlds and distant planets, alien creatures and mystical beasts, but the strangest and most alien realm is already right here on Earth.
Created entirely by volunteers and funded by hundreds of fans worldwide, the Underwater Realm is one of the most ambitious independent film projects ever attempted. Each short set in a different time period, we watch the five times humans have caught a glimpse of the mysterious underwater Atlanteans.
The Underwater Realm is the creation of Realm Pictures, a group of independent film makers working from their home county of Devon. Realm was founded by Director David M Reynolds on the belief that independent film should no longer have to compromise itself in terms of scale or visual impact. The team’s first film, Zomblies, an action horror, has been watched by over 4,000,000 people worldwide. After winning the Raindance / Pepsi ‘Max It’ short film competition in early 2011 the team decided to take on a new challenge: setting a series of films almost entirely underwater.
(Rated M - Might not be suitable for younger viewers)
A chance meeting throws two post-apocalyptic Zombie street cleaners in to an unexpected and unpredictable, whirlwind romance.
This film was made as part of the New Zealand 48hours Film competition 2012. We were given the genre ‘Romantic Comedy’ and had to include the following elements:
Character: Nicky Brick
Prop: A leaf
Line of dialogue: I did that
And, of course, we had to make it within 48hours.
We got “Best Animated Film” in the Auckland Final were a ‘Peter Jackson Wildcard’ into the Grand National Final and won 3rd overall and “Best Animated Film”.
A tribe of Norse warriors traipse across a barren land after battle. Bloodied and wounded, their chief is near death. He is about to hand over power to his son when an army of a completely different kind descends upon them.
Narrated by Devendra Banhart.
This is the story of Tim Maia, possibly the greatest (and craziest) soul singer you never heard of. Infamous in Brazil, Tim was a soul grenade that exploded in the 70s. He single handedly revolutionized Brazilian popular music and had the best time ever doing it. His story is one of humourous excess in every way imaginable and there’s something for all the family: drugs, women, money, guns and even a UFO cult thrown in. He REALLY lived the dream, always with a smile.
This animated film has been created in a close collaboration between SuperHeroes Amsterdam, ShopAround and record label Luakabop, to celebrate Tim’s album launch and introduce the world to a soul superstar. After a decade of legal wrangling, Luaka Bop’s Nobody Can Live Forever: The Existential Soul of Tim Maia is a fifteen track survey of Maia’s 1970s recordings, completely remastered and packed with the sweetest warmest sun drenched soul you can imagine.
So don your white robes, drop a tab or two and get wild for Tim Maia’s first big worldwide release. VIVA TIM!
A film by Alan Moore & Mitch Jenkins
“We’ve all been there: in the lapses after midnight, stumbling down unfamiliar gutters after one too many for the road and looking for inviting lights before they call last orders. James is trying to lose himself, but in a fractured men’s room mirror finds the eyes that have been waiting for him.
Following from the unnerving prelude Act of Faith, Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins unveil a phantasmagoric English dreamtime made of goosefleshed pin-up girls, burned out comedians and faulty lights, with judgement just behind the tinsel
Jimmy’s End pulls back the purple drapes upon an intricate new planet of desire and mystery. We’ve all been there.”
Here is the Official Trailer for the short film ‘The Perfect Excuse’
