Cignoli has helped pioneer a new industry within social media and mobile advertising, setting the standard for six and 15 second branded videos.
The ‘Last Photo’ project is an ongoing video series where artist / filmmaker Ivan Cash travels to different cities, asking strangers about the last photo on their phone. In this video, Cash visits Los Angeles and gets to know the city through the last photos taken by some of its denizens.
365 documentaries in 365 days – The 365 Docobites team, Epiphany & Carl, traveled across five continents for an entire year to introduce their online followers to a stranger-a-day via a vlog of short documentaries. ”37 – Las Vegas” features the heartwarming story of Miss Ruby Rabbit, a young woman who found peace and success by embracing classic pin-up style.
Follow the journey of a single red dress from an idea to the runway as captured by Deep Green Sea, filmmakers Dimitris Ladopoulos and Spiros Rasidakis. “The Art of Making, Red Dress” takes an idea and materializes it to paper where it is magically transformed into a deep red textile.
Petr Krejci’s short film experiments with the creative possibilities of discarded leather scraps by drawing inspiration from natural geological processes such as sediment layers and erosion.
Matteo Muci takes viewers on a two-minute animated voyage through some of the most iconic masterpieces of modern architecture—from Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Fallingwater” to “Ville Savoye” by Le Corbusier (as well as Rietveld Schröder House by Gerrit Rietveld, Farnsworth House by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Glass House by Philip Johnson).
Enjoy a medley of the young Chilean artist’s popular Vine videos featuring different variations on the theme of style.
