David Tomaszewski is the writer/director of Cobalt - a short film which also serves as a proof-of-concept for a feature film he intends to make. We asked him a few questions about the film, his process, and his plans.
This weekend we have a beautifully filmed meditation on breakfast in LA, a short about a dishwashing robot, another short about a writer who falls afoul of story editors, a short documentary about the artist Julian Klincewicz, and a funny short film about being stuck at work.
Six pieces of video this weekend including short animated pieces celebrating Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness and the Indiana Jones story, a gorgeously animated action adventure set in a futuristic world, a documentary about the origins of the High Five, another documentary about a man who cycles many many miles each morning, and an abstract animated piece that is high in beauty and emotion.
This weekend we have two dramatic pieces of narrative storytelling, a disorienting montage of drone cinematography, two shorts featuring iconic cities in unusual ways, and a comedy set at a rest stop in the UK.
O Negative is a short film that will play at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival.
We have six examples of creative short films that span documentary, motion design, animation, and fiction. Have a great weekend!
Gints Zilbalodis made a beautifully-animated tale about a boy and his dog, stranded after a plane crash. The film is one of the most beautiful things we have seen this year, and in this interview we try and get a sense of how the filmmaker created this piece.
