Mon 1er court-métrage réalisé dans le cadre des kino-session n°17 de Bordeaux sur le thème "Martine" et la contrainte "attentat", diffusé au BT59 le 18 mars.
My first short film
Martine, innocente ingénue, se promène légère et court vêtu. Insouciante, rayonnante, elle chantonne, ne semblant pas remarquer les convoitises dont elle est sujet. Justement juste là, une ombre qui guette observe à distance respectable et note chacun de ses pas...
my first attempt at stop-motion animation. i had a very strict deadline for this so i had to do some elements in traditional drawn animation and 2D digital animation. the puppets are wire armatures dressed with gauze fabric and their heads, hands and feet are dry clay.
credits: - story and animation done by me - all music was composed and recorded by my friend Vive - special thanks to So, Nick ,~cynop and ~MisiFetaPortokali for all their help - and a big thanks to `nikosalpha for his help with the submission process
HAS AN ADVISOR EVER STEERED YOU AWAY FROM A PATH YOU LOVED?
RE-ENACTMENT OF A SCENE FROM MIJO
High school counselor, Mr. Pike, advises Andy, a Latino student, to take auto classes. The counselor says, "Your people love manual jobs and big families." Andy flashes back to the advice his hard-drinking father gave him, "Dont trust counselors, priests, rich people, and politicians!"
Andy tosses the counselor's recommended classes back in his face. The outraged counselor yells out that Andy will become a gang member. In the hallway, Andy tells his friend how he intends to take care of the counselor. Mijo is available on Amazon, PublishAmerica, and wherever books are sold.
WHY READ MIJO?
It's FUNNY! Mijo is surreal, heartfelt, sincere, and irreverent. Mijo about how Andy (Mijo) rose out of the barrio and succeeded, despite discrimination and his weakness for women. It has touching vignettes of life in the barrio with Andy's grandfather, mother, sister, and father. There is a hilarious scene where Andy conned the barrio bully to eat rabbit shit covered in Mexican-chocolate. There is funny chapter where his girlfriend drives home from Arizona in a bullet riddled car that lacks doors, seats, and fenders. Mijo is written in a vivid style which makes it seem like a movie is effortlessly playing out in your head.
These stills were taken for my Photojournalism class based on the theme of morning. I decided they would be most effective paired with sound, so I created a soundtrack and synced them together. This is my typical morning.
