A new stop-motion short film takes influence from the work of Hi-Fructose Vol. 41 cover artist Greg “Craola” Simkins. The 5-minute “I’m Scared,” directed by Pete Levin, is a whimsical, yet gripping children’s tale put into motion. The C4toons Entertainment short’s models adapt the exaggerated style and content created by the Los Angeles-based artist into the narrative’s characters.
If our emotions were a color, what would they be? Color is an essential part of how we experience the world, and has long been used by artists to convey powerful emotions. French director Thomas Blanchard uses the film medium to explore the meaning and psychological effects of colors in a surprising and unconventional way. His moving visual compositions have been created out of paint, oil, honey and cinnamon, which he mixes together and then films.
