SP-09   Clipped! Animation, Music and Art


Intoxicate. Inspire. Surprise. A visual mix tape of animation, music and art: Besides innovative, animated music videos, Clipped! also shows short films from the industrial area and advertising. The idea was to make fluid transitions not only auditory, but visual - to homogenize diverse structures in appearance, narrative method, sound and clip techniques to a single unit and still allow for individual surprises. The absurd mingles with the banal, hectic color with low-key black and white. Low budget productions take turns with famous creations. 25 clips from ten countries.

Thus she is wed to Rama, with whom she falls in love at first sight.

To Long For

Director(s): Marc R. Wilkins

Germany / England, 2004

running time: 01´13 min

A soft and gentle, very poetic film. The pictures get their own soul, each gets a character. We hear them talk, whisper, shout. They seek and long for other pictures. Seeking just like people seek other people with announcements in newspapers. The pictures get into a row and finally find to each other for creating an emotional film sequence. By the usage of different voices and music a very lyrical sound is created. The target is to seduce the viewer into a longing and passionate world of pictures. Not just a poetic film but also a filmed poem.  more info
