It’s not often we’ll dedicate a whole post on DN to a new piece of technology – but then again it’s not often its promotional campaign will feature commissioned work from the likes of Don Hertzfeldt, David OReilly and Patrick Doyon.
We know that some of you have been with us since our earliest days, for which we’re eternally grateful, but over the past 7 years you’ve all remained a deliciously elusive mystery to us at DN Towers. We’re planning to make some big changes around here and need your help to make sure they’re all for the better. So if you could lend us a few minutes of your time, we’d really appreciate it.
When I featured Jesper Eriksson’s dark short Between Beasts on the site last week, I thought the film might amass a fair bit of interest surrounding its strong visuals and haunting, captivating plot, along with its reminiscent tones to popular video game Limbo. However, I certainly wasn’t expecting the shadowy animation to garner a whole new level of attention when it [...]
August, as you should all know by now, is traditionally the month when El Vez and I take some of our favourite shorts from the past year on a road trip to the Reading & Leeds music festivals, where they get to show off in front of a brand new crowd in the Cinema Tent [...]

Late to game, perhaps? Work shy, never! We may have only got our act together last September and finally launched the WeAreDN Vimeo Channel, but El Vez and I have been hitting the ‘+ Add to…’ button (only for the choicest of films mind you) like our lives depended on it. Which means we have [...]
We, as I’m sure a lot of you guys do, spend a massive chunk of our online time on the mighty Vimeo hunting for the films that are DN’s bread and butter. Luckily for us, those dilligent Vimeons have been hard at work finding ways to make the hours we spend over there even more [...]
Yes the title says it all, DN now has its own bonafide channel on the glorious home of filmmaking that is Vimeo (and as you can see we’re in mighty fine company). I suspect this news may well be met with cries of “About bloody time!” and “What do you mean you didn’t have one?”, [...]
It’s the start of the August Bank Holiday, the long weekend that annually plays host to the Reading and Leeds music festivals, which can only mean that the lucky folks heading to those two locations over the next few days are going to have the opportunity to sample the delights of the Directors Notes & [...]
