Behind the Lens of ‘Mr Director’ – an Andy Martin short film

The ever-prolific Andy Martin joins us to talk about his latest project - stop-motion short film 'Mr Director'. A 7-minute animation taking the guise of a documentary looking at the diverse cinematic career of its titular filmmaker.

Asides

  • Ever wanted to see a naked, computer-generated, bald woman twerk her generously-sized booty to the sounds of a Venezuelan musician? Well now you can with Jesse Kanda's utterly hypnotic music video for Arca track 'Thievery' #
  • Awarded an 'Honorable Mention' accolade at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, Jim Owen's comedy short Can We Talk? serves up some hilarious and slightly uncomfortable break-up advice from his misguided protagonist Vince. Vince gets more than he bargained for when he dumps his girlfriend, again. #
  • Possibly one of the greatest things to hit the internet in recent times, welcome to the ridiculously infectious world of Lesley the Pony. Taking us on a journey through comely maids and strapping lads, Christian Larrave's short Lesley the Pony Has an A+ Day! not only won the Best Undergraduate Animation award at this year's Ottawa International Animation Festival, but also won best video about a prancing pony on the whole internet award [voted by ME]. Lesley the Pony goes on a fun-filled adventure through the town of Merryville while making lasting memories with his friend, The Duke. #
  • With a fascinating concept at its core, Russian CG enthusiast Dima Fedotof transports us to a universe where automated systems continue to fight a war which has already claimed mankind as a victim. Showcasing some stunning VFX work, this animated parable follows one of the last bombers of the war as it continues on its missions despite its creators and controllers dying some time ago. #
  • Writing a synopsis for a short film can often be a difficult thing...with the work of Directors Notes favourite Peter Millard it often feels impossible. Returning with his latest unmistakable slice of animation Fruit Fruit, I can only think of one word to describe it......CUCUMBER!!!! Lemon cranberry apple banana cucumber orange lime are a selection of fruit fruit. Like what you see? Check out more of Peter's work in our archives. #
