Michael Winslow (from Police Academy fame) here performs in Ignacio Uriarte’s epic 21 minute film “The History of the Typewriter”. Coving the major machines from the past 115 years. I dare you to watch it all lol.
Dutch indie rocker Tim Knol’s song “When I Am King” Â has beenÂ painstakinglyÂ turned into a stop motion pyrograph (the art of burning designs into wood or leather) averaging 5 hours of work per second shown. The dificulty is is unimportant though compared to the impact of the visualÂ narrative that imedeitly brings you back to your childhood and remebering reading the works of Maurice Sendak, A. A. Milne & others.
As soon as Logorama won the 2010 Academy Award for Best Short Film, Animated multiple attempts were made toÂ publicizeÂ it online in it’sÂ entirety. Each one was quickly brought down with DMCA requests in short order. Now it seems either enough time has passed and no one cares or composer Marc Altshuler has clearance where others didnt but for the time being Logorama is availiable online in it’s full 16 minute length on his Vimeo account, so enjoy.
If you haven’t heard of Logorama it is basically the film Quentin TarantinoÂ & Roland Emmerich would co-direct in the nightmares of a TrademarkÂ Attorney. A crude, violent, self aware, disasterÂ Â film that relishes using any and everyÂ CorporateÂ Brand possible to make farce. Enjoy while it lasts.
In Mini News: The 2010 Turner Prize short list has beenÂ announced almost all of the artists nominated who are suposed to be “promoting public discussion of new developments in contemporary British art” are oddly just a few years shy of the 49 year old age cutoff? Weird choices this year it seems. Time to start the Culture World’s Office Pools.
