Out of the wide variety of films from the Sydney Film Festival, we have picked out two documentaries that are about amazing films and the creators behind them.
What happened to the legendary film Dune? The cult movie director behind, The Holy Mountain and El Topo, Alejandro Jodorowsky was working on Frank Herbert’s science-fiction novel Dune back in the 70′s with amazing creatives onboard, from illustrator Moebius to Salvador Dalí. The Dune’s story boards and concept drawings seemed to have inspired the sci-fi genre for decades despite it never been made.
A documentary that follows the award winning animation studio, Studio Ghibli. The driving force of the studio, Hayao Miyazaki director of the beautiful worlds of Princess Monokoke, Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle, works on his latest masterpieces and maybe his last, The Wind Rises. The creations, the studio has the making have been filling the hearts of many with sentimentally for the decades. This could be because each frame is carefully drawn by hand and the studio sticking to it’s traditions.
After the success of POW! WOW! Hawaii and Hong Kong, Jasper Wong now presents POW! WOW! Taiwan! A gathering of of local and international street artists will now be adding colour to the streets of Taipei from May 29th to June 3rd. We are looking forward to see some rad out comes.
Flying Lotus has released a new music video for ‘PHANTASM’ from their album, “Until The Quite Comes”. Although the album was released more than a year ago they still managed to created this minimal, surreal music video with Markus Hofko. The film captures a strange relationship between a fluffy beast and this human like figure that has seem to have lost this body along these amazing landscapes in New Zealand.
Its been almost a week since Sia’s MV ‘Chandelier’ directed by Daniel Askill was released and it’s nearly reaching 6 million views. The slightly disturbing dance moves choreographed by Ryan Heffington, are beautifully executed in a small run-down apartment by Maddie Ziegler from the TV show ‘Dance Moms’. Get ready to be mesmerised by this collaboration between directing, singing, and dancing.
We can not stopping playing around with Sougwen Chung‘s animated fonts! Everything looks cool!

He is well know for his flowing liquified types and his ground breaking methods and approaches to graphic design. In this show,“Think Twice” he will be exploring duality, using a process he developed himself that allows two different images to appear on the same surface depending on the amount of light. It will be a show worth going at least twice. Once, during the day and once at night!
To get a better understanding of this printing technique, here is a video of this book, “More is More” where he uses the same method.
