As Seen on Vimeo: The Fauvist in Spring

Someone once said to me (that someone being our one time columnist Niall O’Sullivan) that intense and complicated visuals need a very simple audio narrative to accompany it, lest the whole package will overwhelm the viewer. In other words: the reason why Avatar’s story was so stolen dumb  stupid patronizing lowest common demoninator twaddle simple was so it didn’t get in the way of the big blue never before seen 3D people beating the crap out of  War Machines. It is also the reason why the lyrics of Stark Reality are so… special.

'ONCE I WAS A PIRATE!' They said. Deep, man

This is not a negative of the poetry of Daniel Cockrill (seen in the below) In fact, by keeping the tale of a boy who is made to bottle his emotions (literally) as easy to follow as possible, you can enjoy absolutely brilliant visuals without feeling like your brain’s being yanked four corners apart by horses. Watch.


Cheers to Inua Ellams for the HU.

  1. Never said that complicated images needed a simple audio narrative, rather that a simple plotline could play with complicated visuals and that complex narratives in films often pare the visuals down. Hence why Woody Allen filmed his more convoluted plotlines in black and white. Next time you misquote me I’m calling my lawyers.

    Niall, what you see up there is how my brain interpreted what you said at 11.30pm last year, at a festival? Should I also mention you’d had a few at the time? Alright, then; you’d had a few at the time.
