Short Film: THE 10AM

"The 10am" is a dark comedy about a father passing down a family business to his son.

Short Film: Everything & Everything & Everything

"Everything & Everything & Everything" Written and Directed by Alberto Roldán

"Everything & Everything & Everything"is a surreal, science fiction-flavored allegory about greed.  In it, a poor man who discovers a mystical blue pyramid in his apartment that produces doorknobs seemingly out of nowhere.  His entire life changes when he realizes that he can make money selling the doorknobs, if only he find the man power to make the mysterious pyramid a profitable enterprise.

What's so beautiful about this film is that Roldán leaves the film's meaning open to interpretation.  This could be a story about greed or obsession or integrity.  Take your pick.  The result is a short film that makes a really person point to a very wide audience.

Alberto Roldán takes a story that is absurd of it's face and deftly turned it into a compelling and thought-provoking short that makes a meaningful comment on consumer culture. 
"The oppressively vapid life of Morgan is forever transformed when a mystical blue pyramid - that inexplicably produces doorknobs - appears in his apartment. What follows is a tale of greed and loss as Morgan builds an impossible, absurd corporate empire of doorknobs."

Short Film: KOISHI

"Koishi" is a beautifully animated short film about overcoming loss.
"A boy overcomes the loss of his father through the encounter with the spirits of ancestor. The title is a Japanese pun, "KOI" being the kind of fish used for the flag designs and "KOISHI (こいし)" meaning "I miss you"."

Short Film: Rise and Fall of Globosome

"The Rise and Fall of Globosome" is an ambitious little animated short film.  In it, a race of tiny alien lifeforms evolve on a planet, develop intelligence, consume resources, and begin changing the world around them, facing the possibility of self-destruction in the process.  The film is a visual metaphor for the history of the human race, and the moral addresses the issue of climate change.

With an emphasis on aesthetics, movement and choreography, the film is gorgeous.  Geddert manages to condense the entirety of natural history into a mesmerizing sequence that tells a poignant tale.
"In the vastness of space, there’s a a small speck of rock inhabited by the most peculiar lifeforms: Dark little "Globosomes" that start to replicate fast and begin to show signs of intelligence. The film tells the story of the rise and fall of these little creatures.

This film is inspired by the special times we’re living in on our own planet. We're ourselves at the crossroads: Rise to our true calling and explore the universe or perish from the face of a dirty planet. Surely we have culture, science and art but what does remains of these achievements, if you look at our world from a global perspective."
