Les Ongles (The Nails) by Clement Deneux was the Grand Prize Winner at the Disposable Film Festival 2012 where I got to be a judge for the second year in a row. It has great fun with a handful of trends in popular filmmaking -- the cell phone shot party that goes out of control among them -- but always with a very unique bent. I look forward to see what Clement does next.
Ted Hope and acclaimed documentary director and producer Peter L Stein discuss what makes a project great in terms of artistic innovation and financial viability at the Disposable Film Festival, 2012.
I really love this short "Dans L'Ombre" (In the Shadows) directed by Fabrice Mathieu. It won the Honorable Mention at the Disposable Film Festival 2012. I was a judge and I think it is really smartly done.
I look forward to seeing more by this director.
I met Steven Briend at the Disposable Film Festival last year. I liked his papercraft stop motion "magic" short PROTEIGON. I just got to see his new short SHUNPO which is a nice bit of dance on film with another tad of cinema magic thrown in with excellent results. Check it out:
SHUNPO by stevenbriand
What if we could escape our daily routine for a moment ? A Step, just one, that could move us miles away from here, in a second; a flash step. A Shunpo. Shunpo was shot in 6 days in 13 different locations in Paris plus one in Turkey at "Tuz Göllü" salt lake. The camera used was a Canon 5D Mark III with 16-35 L, 24-70L and 70-200L lenses.
