Paradise Falls: A Short Film by Fantavious Fritz

Last Saturday we announced the FvF Exclusive portrait with Toronto-based filmmaker Fantavious Fritz for the iPad magazine subscribers.

For our readers who don’t have an iPad, don’t despair, you’ll be able to see his portrait soon on the FvF website. In the meantime, check out his work ‘Paradise Falls' - a short film about two adventurous youths who explore a haunted mansion and fall in love with its ghost, deep in the heart of suburban hell. 

Just one look at the trailer should be enough to convince anyone that this film and filmmaker are something special. More on his work, on Fantavious’ website here.

The Essence of Sound by Filmmaker Susie Sie

This teaser video made by filmmaker and artist Susie Sie translates acoustic signals into visual structures.

In this unique way, it demonstrates how matter reacts to vibrations. It simply involved very fine powder in a range of colours and a subwoofer. Everything else was left to the sound – and Susie.

The result is this fascinating 60 second clip, also one of Vimeo’s Staff Pick. See more of Susie’s work here.

I Saw it in You
Faces that somehow seem familiar, in relaxed situations, looking straight at the painter. Photographic realism is not necessary here, only the genuine feeling that comes across. 
Andrea Nakhla's 'I Saw it in You' series could very well be a visual recording of everyday meetings with people and conversations.
