Regular by Nata Metlukh
"The story is set in a graphic design world where fonts are the main characters. They have unique properties: Bold makes everything thicker, Italic tilts things, Monospace equalizes objects by width, etc. Fonts team up to build a garden, and the five boxing wizards jump in quickly to inspect their work. A negative space storm flushes everything away, but Regular comes and fixes the garden."
Logline: The five boxing wizards jump quickly.
à la fin… by Nicolas Lichtle.
"Here is a film ... , it's neither fiction nor animation, the graphic style is rather singular. It's a moment of introspection, very intimate, staged through a succession of small moments imbued with poetry, absurdity and sometimes surrealism…"

(Un)Related To God by Thomas Pons
"A track by Apollo Noir, entitled « Unrelated to God », chanting God’s name…
Wait… Yes, it seems we are facing a paradox. Men strive to name God, to define Him, as much as they are willing to detach themselves from Him.
This traditional 2D animation video is about our relationship to God, the little figures embodying the metaphor of Men as builders of their own belief. The dust from stones disintegrate in elementary particles giving birth to new figures and matter. Men, stones and particles transform in mysterious cycles, Particles turning gigantic, Stones becoming alive, Men growing in colossal sculptures. ..."
Written & performed by Apollo Noir.
Directed by Thomas Pons.

MAN ON THE CHAIR by Jeong Dahee
“Man on the chair” is tormented and constantly doubts his very own existence. It is just merely a picture that I created... Perhaps could I be also an image crafted by others?
Genius Loci by Kazak Productions
"One night, Reine, a young loner, sees within the urban chaos a mystical oneness that seems alive, like some sort of guide."
