PROCRASTINATION

A beautiful Animation film by Johnny Kelly who works from London. This work talks about procrastinating and you don’t have to watch it if you are not procrastinating but it is mind-boggling and oddly relaxing to watch. This was done as a part of his graduation film for MA in animation at the Royal College of Art. An investigative and exploratory hands-on gloves-off study into the practice of putting things ‘off”. Sometimes the only way to get something done is to do two dozen other things first. Sound design by Mike Wyeld, with a voice over by Bryan Quinn. It’s a marathon of visual permutations!

To Speak or Not to Speak by Raoul Servais

1970, 10mins 19s

English

This short animation film is directed and produced by a renowned Belgian filmmaker, Raoul Servais. He says, “”What I tried to do was finding an expressive way of emphasizing what the characters were saying, and even more how they were saying it.” In reaction to the Vietnam War, this film is a statement and exploration of Servais’ anti-militarist and anti-authoritarian opinions.
