First up is Madam Tutli Putli. Reminded me of Amelie by way of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (or perhaps more fittingly Jacobs Ladder..though the sound design in "Madam" is similar to "Massacre" in its crazy tension and volume) Tense, beautiful, cluttered. Characters move with the heaviness of puppets with realistic (creepy) eyes. Open ending might frustrate some but its pretty haunting altogether and will stay etched in my brain fro quite a while. And I have my theories on just what is going on here.
Next up is Vincent by Tim Burton. Created in 1982 and narrated by Vincent Price its a cute and deranged little short that has more than a hint of what Burton would soon become. What struck me was the lighting and the angles of the shots. Kind of a Noir, expressionist, classic horror, children's short. Watching it made me want to attempt to recreate certain scenes in Iclone. Would certainly be a fun exercise.
Hope you enjoy.
