Bolgarija, Hrvaška, Nemčija, 2012, 35mm, 16:30
When did you last talk to your father? Will you ever ask him about the things that hurt you? In Father the reality of life is turned upside down to create an impossible dialogue – the dialogue between a child and a father that never happens.
Spectacular car chases, an intense hostage crisis, wild animals rampaging through the city… all this and more in Logorama!
Formed in 1994, the H5 collective has become a renowned name in the worlds of music videos (Alex Gopher, Zebda, Massive Attack, Goldfrapp), advertising (Louis Vuitton, Audi, Volkswagen, Citroën) and graphic design (with exhibitions in Paris, New York, and Tokyo). In 2009, members of H5 François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy and Ludovic Houplain created Logorama, their first short film, which won the Academy Award for best animated short film one year later.
A whole bunch of animators gather around the campfire to tell their tales of ghosts and the ghostly. Tales to shock, amuse, and frighten! Tales to make you laugh, cry and scream! Stuff we made up! Who knows what lurks in the witching hour? It turns out that we do, and soon you will too.
Featuring new work from some of the finest animators making their own stuff today, including award winners, cult faves, up-and-comers, folks you already know and folks you should know. Late Night Work Club is a loose, rotating collective of indie animators.
That is, animators who do independent, non-commercial work. It’s an excuse to bring a whole bunch of us together and make something great, and also to promote the work of the artists involved. Some of the best, most personal, experimental and vital animation going right now is happening on the internet. It’s being made late at night when other people have gone to sleep and on weekends when everyone else is out. It’s being made by students, freelancers, full-timers and folks with unrelated day jobs.
