The Creators Project Spotlight - Week 4

The Creators Project Spotlight - Week 4

The Creators Project is a celebration of creativity and innovation in the digital age. To our mind, one of the best things about technology is that with a little inspiration, it empowers anyone to create by making the tools of production and distribution more accessible. So, each week we put out a call for your creative submissions—your experimental films, software art, animations, music mash-ups—then highlight the best of the best right here on The Creators Project Spotlight. Check out the works below and let us know what you think.

Want to see your work up here? Submit your creations to create@thecreatorsproject.com and check back next Friday to see if you’ve made the cut.

Peak by CypherAudio

It’s impossible to watch the 3D animation above without smiling. Just try it. We dare you. Submitted by CypherAudio, who created the video game-inspired soundtrack, and produced and directed by Adolescent, this short film is meant to portray “the difficulties of working life and the struggles endured by ambitious people who are trying to get to the top.” If only the realities of the creative rat-race were this cheerful and sparkly.

Kelly Angood

We’re totally smitten with the work of UK-based artist, Kelly Angood, so we couldn’t pick just one project to feature here. Angood makes functional replicas of objects that she will never be able to own due to cost or availability issues, like the Valentine typewriter and Photoautomat above. Unbelievably, the objects are painstakingly re-constructed out of corrugated cardboard, then rigged by Angood with things like Polaroid film or spare parts to perform their original functions. We applaud her DIY ethos and resourcefulness and would love one of her makeshift Photoautomat’s for our office.

Todo del Tiempo by NYSU Films

This music video for “Todo del Tiempo” by Glez comes from Spanish film production studio NYSU Films. We immediately fell for its exquisite, dark aesthetic reminiscent of Velasquez or Goya paintings and were impressed and intrigued by the unique stop-motion technique they’ve used throughout the video, giving the characters a twitchy, nervous-tick-like appearance. It’s mesmerizing and beautiful, but definitely not a dinner party we’d like to be at.
