S~U~R | a short film

“S~U~R is an experimental film that was produced during the last months aside our daily projects.

When working on it we were offered a great creative freedom that provided the chance of refining our skills towards new technologies.

Your main goal was to create an aesthetic visual language which should build a dreamlike atmosphere.” Andreas Barden

A sensual stimulation of visual changes. Enjoyable to the psyche and the eyes. It’s short and pleasantly surprising. – j.kiley

S~U~R from Andreas Barden

The Night the Moon Fell | a short film

All I can possibly say is what a huge surprise from such a short film of 2m 40s. I could add it is animated and about a young boy with a telescope who is awaiting Santa Claus to arrive. From here on if more is sought out from the story – it is better to watch the video. – j.kiley

Alpine Adventure | a short film

A short film with a natural magnificence of stunning beauty. The story is the captivating nature one views. A magic castle suddenly appears and is gone. The bravery of a sole walking out on the water frozen from a cold winter giving the appearance of a looking glass. Sometimes we don’t need a written story. Nature contains more tales than writers can write. The ‘AWE’ factor fills all the frames for the eyes delight. I am partial to trains. One appears making me recall ‘The Orient Express’ of Agatha Christie fame. It is a delight ‘The Alpine Adventure’ – and a feast for the eyes.

A Reminder: OPEN TO FULL SCREEN for a Complete Immersion into viewing ‘Alpine Adventure’ and to better appreciate the film maker’s capturing of the fullness of the textures of nature in Winter. – j.kiley

Soar!

1-soar_officialposterTwo people with huge differences. They come to terms with the surprise meeting and eventually realize they could work together. A strange pairing but willing to discover a problem to enable one to overcome and to move on with their challenge. It served as a solution to the resolution of both their understanding of their mutual situations.

2-soar-young-girlI don’t want to reveal too much but if you think of Antoine de Saint Exupéry, a famous pilot, an adventurer, and an author who gave us Le Petit Prince, His imagination is infused in the two young people, one a girl and the other the tiniest of boys and both love the idea of flying. He does and was part of a group of flyers until he crashes. Before he does, the young girl is trying everything from her drawing board to get her small plane to stay up in the air long enough to prove she had worked out the theory of flying herself, also.

3-soar-when-they-first-meet-the-girl-and-the-very-small-boyThe two meet. The wee one is reluctant and frightened by the girl, though she tries to convince him she is not going to harm him. The interaction and what transpires is a marvel to see. Differences do not have to be insurmountable. People when being sensible can turn out to be just what they were looking for. It works in SOAR. It was a matter of finding trust and believing untill success triumphs.

4-soar-girl-trying-to-help-wee-boy-to-fly-againTwo strangers actually making each other understand what they needed to solve; what they were needing and looking for. A friendship was being made without anyone’s awareness. It is possible for people from two different worlds to develop understanding and actual aid in the other’s reaching success through co-operation. A great example for children and adults to learn through the watching of the growing the tiny boy and the young girl succeed at reaching in SOAR. Watching this film is a delight and something special transpires and a gift is given at the end which will enrich the viewer and make us all smile.

5-soal-one-version-of-fixing-flying-vehibleThere is word mentioned in the writing below the film video, this film story may be made into a feature film. It won many awards for being one of the best short films. It is beautifully created. Animation at its best quality. Have fun watching. I did and feel whomever decides to take the journey in this short film will SOAR with excitement and will find great satisfaction. Watch it with a child if you know one. They will also love SOAR, I believe.. – j.kiley
