ASH TO ART – Animation by Sharon Liu


A charcoal animation using ash salvaged from The Mackintosh Building fire at The Glasgow School of Art. The film documents the Ash to Art project which transformed the worthless by-product of the fire into 25 priceless works of art.

In 2014, The Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh building, a symbol of British art, was reduced to ash.

25 world-famous artists including Grayson Perry, David Shrigley and Sir Antony Gormley were asked to turn a piece of charcoal salvaged from the Mackintosh Building fire into art. The work was auctioned at Christie’s to fund the rebuild.

The film was commissioned by J. Walter Thompson (JWT London) and produced at Jelly London.

Ash To Art animation is shortlisted in the Animation category at Cannes Lions 2017.

Theory of Relativity by Visual Suspect


Reflection in photography is one of the most inseparable tool of the creator, disrupting the reality to create his own world. We screen how these reflections work in video and, more interesting, in motion.

There is no effect used, only camera movements together with stabilization techniques. The film has been shot in Hong Kong.

Inspired by the Theory of Relativity from Albert Einstein, this is a visual essay about perception and knowledge as reflection of our reality. Mass curves space and time, while the observer has his own perspective.

Slacker by Red Bull


Pushing limits is nothing new. That’s precisely how performance levels trend skyward. But what if we told you there was a place, deep in the deserts of Utah, where the lines of progressive sports blur while simultaneously apexing to new, unfathomable realities of what’s possible?

Enter G.G.B.Y. (Gobble, Gobble, Bitches, Yeah). The informal, annual gathering at the aptly named Fruit Bowl, outside Moab, organically draws envelope-pushers of all shapes, sizes and disciplines. Event co-founder Terry Acomb takes us through his role in the slacklining/highlining community and gives us a look at the people who make GGBY so incredible.
