First quarter at the lovely SCAD, and this week kicked of the Savannah Film Festival.
The Film Festival has been fantastic so far, from hearing Jeremy Irons give a motivational speech, while sounding just like Scar, to nearly crying with a perfect stranger over The Book Thief. I've only seen three features so far, but the rest of the week is promising. My first was the animated shorts, which were all amazing. My favorite two had to be Fear of Flying directed and written Conor Finnegan, which you can watch here: vimeo.com/46141955 I think what makes it so great is the character design, the same story could have been told with 3D animation, but it wouldn't have been as unique and cute. The cuteness really comes from the plush look of the characters. My other favorite had me and the entire audience fooled up until the end, The Missing Scarf (themissingscarf.com/) appears to be a cute children's story of a squirrel with a missing scarf who helps other animals until the bear takes a dark turn and explains his fear of the universe ending. Then the entire thing ends up like Dawn of the Dead, and, you'll just have to watch it. The next two films I saw were Who Shot Rock and Roll and The Brothers Hypnotic, both were great, and it was smart to have them paired together. Who shot Rock and Roll made me want to change majors and be a photographer. Then tonight I saw The Book Thief, I haven't read the book, but from what my neighbor said, it was very close to the book, and either way was beautiful. I noticed the cinematographer played with the colors white and black, which ties in to the themes of death and life. This could be see in the opening scene with the black train in the winter-y landscape, but it was most clearly seen
(Spoilers beyond here)
after the bombs hit and Liesel is hunched over Rudy, Rudy lays in the white rubble and it clothed in white, symbolizing heaven and peace, where as Liesel is clothed in black and when she falls back is laying the black rubble, as if to say she is still a part of the broken world, but alive. The ending scene when it pans her future house is primarily white, which seems to say that a measure of peace has been brought back to her in the end. If nothing else the white and the black created beautiful contrast in the last scene. 

On another note unrelated to the film festival another great short is: www.shortoftheweek.com/2013/02… the Solipsist, which is an incredibly inspiring and beautiful short. Which at the same time is almost a little unnerving to watch through.

I'm a recent graduate from highschool majoring in animation at Savannah College of Art and Design.
I think everyone can create and as artists we should lead that. I'm interested in exploring surrealism and the unconscious, experimental animation, and living paint.
I'm not interested in locking myself down to one medium. I'm exploring different modes of expression.
I'd love to work with other artists or get feedback from other people!
