Infinity: What Are You Thinking About?

Tuesday 11.23.2010 , Posted by

Imagine a world where all your thoughts come to life, every amazing invention you can think is realized before your eyes and each adventure is a journey instantly manifested. In their new advertisement for Batelco, the filmmakers at Spyfilms create a reality where all ideas are possible… and it’s one amazing roller coaster ride.

The film is part of a rather confusing interactive Facebook campaign for the Bahrain based communications group Batelco. It invites viewers to take webcam shots of themselves, the slogan “Batelco. Bringing ideas to life” is pasted over their face and then they are supposed to put down their ‘ideas’. Where this is all going, and to what ends, left us a little lost… we think Batelco could implement an instructional ‘about’ video to great advantage. Regardless, it’s a thrilling film by the very talented folks at Spyfilm.

Monday 11.22.2010 , Posted by

“I know what I want for Christmas! I’ll never get sick of it.” A young boy receives his perfect Christmas gift in Ruairi Robinson’s (pronounced Raw-ree) creepy upcoming sci-fi film, Blinky. The film, starring Max Records (Where the Wild Things Are), is based around a future where every home has a robot helper and no one has to worry because their kids are “perfectly safe.” With his perpetual smile, Blinky looks like the perfect psychopathic nightmare for the 21st century.

Robinson, a commercial advertising director and animator, is the creator of the academy nominated animated film Fifty Percent Grey, and the critically acclaimed short film The Silent City, which we’ve included for your enjoyment at the bottom of this page. [Read more...]

Bill Murray Represented in Fine Art

Wednesday 11.10.2010 , Posted by

Roaming around the spacious Internet recently, I noticed a pattern that pleased me: high quality artwork featuring actor, comedian and all-out character, Bill Murray. I’ve felt for a while that we are both pretty random fellows and learned we both enjoy washing random people’s dishes, so it seemed to be the perfect time to do a post. Enjoy! – Paul Caridad
