From abstracted animations to explorations of light, computer technologies to human bodies, quantum-fantasies to micro-epics, and all points in between, 2015 has to be the strongest year for experimental films we've seen for a while. We're not sure why...it may have something to do with exploring the nature of meaning in a very confused media world. Either way, it's you guys that benefit.

Stop Motion is based around a repetitive 9 second hypnotic loop which is designed to take the viewer on a meditative journey through abstract tones and textures. This lo-fi DIY experimental short film was shot in Fremantle on a mobile phone and edited at home on a laptop. The soundtrack was also recorded at home onto cassette tape and then transferred to digital.

A Mortal is seduced by a Vampire and transmogrified into an Immortal, her final hours engulfed in a tenebrous fever dream as she slips across the boundaries of Life and Death.
Irina Arnaut, USA, 2013, 16mins
In this absurdist take on the hero's journey, the filmmaker plays the role of an artist in pursuit of inspiration. At once emboldened and tormented by her own creative ambition, her artistic and cinematic predecessors, and even by her DP, she careens through a cavalcade of cultural influences before erupting in a deceptively charming slapstick routine.
A Nice Bowl of Soup
Kelly Kirshtner, USA, 2014, 4mins
A domestic exchange is interrupted by voices negotiating the elsewhere between the screen and the sound booth. The characters work through an exercise in the production of dialogue, disclosing otherwise unheard labor and collaborations off screen.

SoundPrint explores the marks left by sonic frequencies on various materials and landscapes, natural and artificial. Imagery from optical soundtracks and micro photography of record grooves play against similar signals received by sand, water, and people. The sounds of of the Ocean, booming sand dunes and the Midshipman toadfish are the backdrop for a rich exploration of the subtleties of written and transcribed sound.
