THE SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL ANIMATION FESTIVAL 2011
Design, Identity, Print, Video

Here is a a sneak peak of the identity and poster design for the Sydney International Animation Festival 2011, and event that promises much flurry and vivid colours.










 







SHIV-R - PARASITE (REPOSSESSION)

Direction / Design / Video / Production: Scissors

Scissors produced this video clip for Shivr's smash hit Parasite. We filmed live bugs and small insects under a microscope with a special camera, then distorted the footage slightly to produce an interesting visual experience on a micro-level.





 









SLEEP NOW - MUSIC VIDEO
Direction / Design / Video / Production

Scissors were asked to direct and produce a video clip for the internationally awesome band Angelspit. It is the Master & Margarita meets industrial punk, with a lot of distortion reflective of Angelspit's frantic music. Shot over 2 days, the production of Sleep now involved building an enormous paper city backdrop inspired by 1930's style Russian Constructivism combined with animation and some amazing make-up and costumes.

Drawing upon microscope imagery from living human, plant and animal tissue, this digital wallpaper collection explores the themes of heartbreak, environmental decay as well the tragedy and drama of pond life by means of digital projection. This project features a stellar cast of human blood, slime mould, plant ovaries and pond specimens fighting to the death.
