Animal Kingdom

I saw Animal Kingdom. Its an Australian film about the Australia you do not see on the tourist advertising. Rough, gritty, brutal, direct and violent.

Signatures: A Backcountry Skiing, Snowboarding, and Telemark Film

Music: No 100 miles by Jon Swift

From the orange and gold of fall to the pink cherry blossoms of spring, Signatures follows an entire winter deep in the hardwoods of Hokkaido, Japan. Deliciously deep January blower to April corn, we bring you a film about expression, and the art of riding on snow. Every turn has a personality, and every personality has its own unique style: the air, the smear, the spin, the grab, the laid-out cutback carve. Shot in vibrant HD, Signatures is 100% human powered backcountry skiing in all snow-sliding styles: board, noboard, ski, and drop-knee.

Bands such as The Scientists, The Beasts of Bourbon, Kim Salmon and the Surrealists, The James Baker Experience, Blue Ruin, The Hoodoo Gurus, Munroe's Fur, Lubricated Goat, THUG, Died Pretty, Box the Jesuit, Cosmic Psychos, The Butcher Shop, King Snake Roost, feedtime were just some of the brilliance around at the time.

Copy Shop

Copy Shop from Nishant Kumar on Vimeo.

A man who works dedicatedly in a copy shop copies himself until he fills the whole world with his clones. This ''film'' actually consists of nearly 18,000 photocopied frames, which are animated and filmed with a 35mm camera.
