<1> Something cheesy to start with. You can never get tired of cute and lovely animations like this.

<2> A splendid filmography by Martin Woutisseth. Tim Burton’s works have accompanied me through two decades of my life, and watching this animation evoked a fair bit of nostalgia. Edward Scissorshand, Sleepy Hollow, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, 9 and Alice in Wonderland!  It’s like remembering the taste of ice-cream you had when you were young.

<3> Where else better to witness the passing of relentless time than a man’s toilet mirror?

Film <1> adopts a simple yet stunning videography. Interesting perspective, though not original. Credit goes to using a child’s charm and innocence to bring across a message, and the film has served its purpose, to draw empathy and garner support. It’s not a piece of depth, but the audio and visual elements are well-pieced together.

<2> I’m not a big fan of upbeat music, DJ, loud music and stuff. Nevertheless, what I really like about this film are the illustrations that make this worth watching.

<3> is the star of the week. Nothing like I’ve seen before. A surreal piece, symbols and all. Sometimes I’m not really sure what the film was about. Suffering, sin, redemption, the good and bad in our world. What I would say for sure is that I couldn’t tear myself away. Fantastic score, even better visuals. Check out the link below after you’ve watched the film!

I suppose Fridays are better days to sit back and relax in front of your computer, and reward yourself with some thought-provoking or stunning motion pictures. After all, T.G.I.F. I have a penchant for the beautiful and the strange, even better, the combination of both. Spend some time, keep away the endless distractions you have on the internet and watch these deserving works in HD, full screen, and headphones/earphones on.

<Watchable> will be a weekly feature, on Fridays, so stay tuned!

Monday’s the start of the week. A new start, after a hard-earned break over the weekends. Not necessarily so, because many people do work on weekends to keep the world spinning.

My reader feeds me with inspiring short films from various blogs, and I always get new feelings watching the different films made by different people, telling their stories. Film is not the only way of telling stories, but it can be the most captivating.

So here I have, three films to share on this particular Monday. I play the classical guitar myself, and that interest resonates with the first film. Sometimes I aspire to play music like that, but it is apparent that my lack of discipline will never bring me that far. The second film’s pretty breathtaking. Lots of cliches, nevertheless you can take away a deal of feelings from it. And while I don’t quite agree with the biology behind the third film, it is certainly one of my favorites. Wicked.

So take some time off and enjoy these films in full-screen, for they are so much better than what we have on television. And you’ll be all set for the week ahead.
