Rosa Rosa – short animated love story

Filed under: Animation — thalida @ 12:09 am

Rosa Rosa is the interweaving of individual and collective fates via a love story told by the couple themselves. It consists partly of reworked photos, the images superimposed on each other to create a stylized realism in which public and private spaces overlap. With its evocative soundtrack and plain, simple narration, this film by director Félix Dufour-Laperrière offers a touching look at happiness in hard times.

Filed under: Animation — thalida @ 10:47 pm

In a world where airships are made of iron and computers are powered by steam, Jasper Morello, a disgraced aerial navigator, flees his plague-ridden home on a desperate voyage to redeem himself. The expedition through vast un-chartered skies is filled with horrors but in a shocking climax, Jasper discovers that the greatest horror of all lies within man himself.

Set in the dark silhouette world of the Shadowlands, “Jasper Morello” is an epic steampunk adventure in the gothic tradition of Jules Verne and Edgar Allan Poe.
