Handmade is an independent short film shot  under rain in 2006 in Sao Paulo. The post production was made in Barcelona. The movie was directed by Denis Kamioka aka CISMA a Brazilian animation director, Handmade is his first short film using live action. This surrealistic short movie combined with animation has a very well encoded message, but basically it talks about the beginning and the end of a relationship using a lot of symbols. It’s funny how synchronized i discover the same theme both in a short and  a long version, the long one is a movie i watched last night You and me and every one we know directed by Miranda July.

Also one of the best parts about Handmade is that it was co-written by Herbert Baglione (check out this great interview with him).

SCOTT BARRY’s work combines illustration, animation, collage, photography and installation. I like the way he combines the elements in his works,  it’s simple but makes a instantaneous connection with the audience, it’s like skipping all the useless words. It has a  bit of mysticism combined with  humor sometimes even sarcasm. It seems that the artist is mainly preoccupied by space and how we integrate in it, sexuality, life and death, the beauty of chaos and the simple  relation between people like in the piece Naked high five.
