Watch Audience FEEDBACK: CARGO, 25min, Netherlands, Documentary/Romance

Played at the May 2017 Best of EUROPEAN Shorts Festival

Poster cargo small

On a lonely ship, in the middle of the North Sea, fourteen men work together for a month. Day and night they sail around oilrigs to provide them of supplies. In this world of fellowship, waves, storms and containers, Frans, an Amsterdam sailor, seems to be at his best. However, the longer the journey lasts, the more it becomes apparent that something essential is missing in this male microcosm at sea. A small film about loneliness and the importance of love.

1Minute Nature, 12min, Netherlands, Documentary/Animation
Directed by Stefanie Visjager & Katinka Baehr

1Minute Nature is a series of short animated documentaries for children. We began by interviewing children, with the aim of creating 1minute real life stories with a fairytale feeling, and then bringing the audio to life with animation. The central topic is how children see and experience nature.

The audio is documentary, yet we make our interviews sound like fiction. This play on boundaries between fact and fiction is also reflected in the imagery; photographed objects from daily life are used as a 3D setting for the world in which 2D drawn characters live.

Both in audio and animation we aim to make children reflect on the world they live in and hopefully they will see the world in a slightly different way after 1Minute.

1Minute Nature is produced by a team of independent and Prix Europa Awarded radio producers in cooperation with a team of animators.

Director Statement:

“As a radio producer it is scary to put images to words, since the visual perception is so much stronger. Yet we wanted to try and I think we succeeded wonderfully. We kept the intimacy of a radio interview, enhancing it by animation. Both story and images (drawings on photographs) reflect a play on boundaries between fact and fiction.”

Reactions from the Audience for FOREVER AFTER:
forever_after_movie_poster

“Visually, the start constrast of the character’s wardrobe and the colours of the city is very powerful. Shows the emotions of loneliness.”

“The wound of her leg is how she feels inside, while her stockings serve as the metaphor for how she shows herself to the world.”

“Amazing film that shows how people get stuck in a certain place in their life and it’s hard for them to move forward.”

Forever After was directed by Charlotte Scott-Wilson
