Update: August 2017

Been awhile since I’ve blogged here. Haven’t been following the Transhumanists, so nothing to report there. I’ve also been too busy creating short films to do reviews on others’ work here. What have I been doing? Well, there’s this:

Then there’s this:

Short film: Skateistan

Very cool little documentary from Vimeo’s staff picks on a skateboard park in Kabul, Afghanistan. Question: why don’t many girls in America, where there is no patriarchal restriction, skateboard?

Animated Short Film: Just Delicious

Just discovered this animation, Just Delicious.

Animation is sort of a guilty pleasure for me. There’s so much good stuff out there, I could spend hours watching. It’s so much better than Saturday morning ever was . All I can say is I hope these creators keep up the great work. This one is priceless.

Thank you Brian Bear!

Short Film Review: Signs

Signs is a sweet, slightly goofy, yet poignant short film. It’s boy wants to meet girl but doesn’t know how. Feels like a dork. Has no clue. Figures it out. Cute story. Done well. Happy ending. This version seems a bit blurry. Probably needs a big screen to be viewed properly. Either that or I need a new prescription for my glasses.

It’s a 2009 Cannes Lion winner. Cannes Lion is a festival for people that do commercial work. Advertising folks.
