The Cage | Filmsupply Originals

Filmsupply Originals presents — The Cage.

More than a story of redemption, The Cage is a story of survival. When Philly’s streets look to bring one young man down and entangle him with violence, anger, and death, it’s purely up to him to find a way to break free. While the only escape may seem to come from the basketball court, make no mistake — this is no game.

First Ladyland

Sevnica, the small medieval town in Slovenia where Melania Trump grew up, is officially open for business. That’s because, in many ways, our new First Lady is their new First Lady too. And now it seems the whole country is talking about their favorite daughter. Slovenia couldn't be further removed from her husband's vision for America, but Slovenians across the country are embracing The Donald and making preparations for a boom in tourism that, if all goes as planned, should start any moment now. If you try not to get too partisan for about 20 minutes, FIRST LADYLAND will make you smile bigly. But if we go missing, please check our coffee for cyanide.

Captions available in English, Spanish, French, German and Russian. Slovenian is coming soon! We're new at this captioning thing, so let us know if you've got a language you'd like to see.

How small are we in the scale of the universe?

For Ted-Ed

In 1995, scientists pointed the Hubble Telescope at an area of the sky near the Big Dipper. The location was apparently empty, and the whole endeavour was risky – what, if anything, was going to show up? But what came back was nothing short of spectacular: an image of over 1,500 galaxies glimmering in a tiny sliver of the universe. Alex Hofeldt helps us understand the scale of this image.

Seeking Nirvana 2.1 ~ The Tales Of Vienna

This is the sailing vessel Vienna, 36 feet in length, a beam 11.5 ft wide, mast 52 ft tall. This journey takes place mere miles from the harbor of Vancouver, where Vienna was built in 1982. Comfortably sleeping 5, the vessel is outfitted with the simplest comforts of home.
The inlets of the British Columbian coast are especially prone to winter storms, gale force winds and relentless precipitation. These 5 men embark on a journey in search of rough seas and secluded mountainous areas. Tacking their way up the coast, they are in for more than sailing and skiing. A fictional story based on true events.

Max Cooper & Tom Hodge - Symmetry

Max Cooper

Symmetry is one of the most fundamental principles of nature, and also forms the basis of music. So this music video is an important early chapter in the Emergence audio-visual project, which starts with visualisations of the basic building blocks of nature, setting the stage for the physical universe to come into being, and later planets, life, civilisation, and technology (the whole story and project is explained at:

Symmetry is the idea that one aspect of a system can change while another remains constant. The idea of natural laws themselves, rely on the forms of symmetry that mean the same forces will apply to you as they do to me, independently of our position in space or time. And scientists searches for natures symmetries lie at the heart of much of our best models of reality (see Noether's Theorem or more recent uses of symmetries in things like the 'amplituhedron'!).

The principle is also responsible for music, in that our enjoyment of tonality, melody, harmony and rhythm comes from our subconscious appreciation of different types of patterns (i.e. symmetries) in sound waves.

The idea of Symmetry was explored in the video by Kevin McGloughlin, using simple symmetrical forms (primarily the circle), and symmetrical operations applied to them - rotations, translations and reflections. The animation demonstrates the beauty of this simple concept when applied in an iterative journey towards ever increasing complexity, both visually and musically.

The audio track originally came from preparations for a live piano and electronics show with Tom Hodge. I had some chords and glitches we were playing with in combination with a simple piano motif. We decided to try some live Fender Rhodes with it during practice and it all came to life.

Luckily we recorded the whole session so I had a load of stock content to play with when it came to turning the project into the album intro. My reasoning was that the intro should be about symmetry because of it's basic role in nature, and the development and form of the track, going so glitchy from a simple melodic motif starting point, should work with applications of ever more complex symmetrical manipulation - emergence from symmetry, just as Kevin delivered.

Amazingly, Kevin didn't use automated sync points from the stems of the audio project - or to put it another way, Kevin painstakingly set up all of those edits by hand, hats off to him for his perseverance on that!

Thanks for having a read, watch and a listen! - max
When I first heard Symmetry I was blown away by its impact and it really struck a chord with me... On hearing the concept for the track, this feeling was empowered tenfold. After much discussion with Max, we arrived at a conclusive concept for the visual.

I represented conservation laws by the use of a simple circle repetition. This circle form took on many new characteristics and evolved in complexity throughout the course of it's journey, though every new form is an evolution / adaptation of the initial circle. I used a variety of techniques in an attempt to convey the idea of this ever evolving complexity within symmetry.

Starting with minimal moire patterns, moving into 3d depth and finally ending up with massive distortions and adaptations using a technique I developed 'Digi-Cut', displaying various moments in time offset by tiny fractions. This was an effort to demonstrate pre-universe ideas and the introduction of organic matter in relation to symmetry.

It was an absolute honour to work on this project with Max, in particular on 'Symmetry', which is my personal favourite piece on Emergence.

The Power of Privacy

Can privacy really still exist in a world where we are continuously connected to the internet?

I directed these animated sequences for co-director Callum Cooper's D&AD Yellow Pencil winning documentary series "The Power of Privacy" for The Guardian. The series explores the potential as well as the limits of privacy today. The animations establish the historical context and key themes for each episode of the series.


So this is how its done! The A -Z of creating a project with yours truly and my talented band of magicians. I wanted to show all the different steps involved in the creation process while adding an explosion of colour and wackiness to it all! And of course everything is shot in camera frame by frame with the magic of stop-motion!!

Lay Down Your Weapons

Following the path of Strange Freedom´s previous videos we wanted to move from rather materialistic and abstract creations towards a glimpse of humaneness but still up to one's neck in morass. In particular we focused on the most common feature of identification: the human face. At first, it seems defenseless, even motionless, dead, fading into the background like stone. It looks like endless layers of dust and debris smothering every pore, every twitch of expression. All blessings and wounds paint traces onto faces. »Lay down your weapons« describes a long battle to survive.

This music video is based on thousands of single macroscopic and microscopic photographies.

The Story of the Re-Evaluated

There is an ongoing story in the history of cinema about films that are derided and rejected upon release but then completely re-assessed years later. Titles like Citizen Kane, Blade Runner, Vertigo, It's a Wonderful Life, and more all share this in common. Let's talk about this concept of re-evaluation and what it means, if anything at all, for the future.

Today‘s men are forced to represent an image that is caught between showing off untouchable masculinity, intellectual overtaxing and physical insecurities. The multitude of contradictory expectations also changes the emotional foundation of relationships - when social and cultural convictions collide with feelings and lust. „It‘s been a long time“ wants to illustrate such an interpersonal story without valuing it. We want to give an insight in which the pictures remain ambivalent. We want to sketch out a conflict between two lovers, who fight each other on different frequencies.

Less Than Human

In the aftermath of a zombie outbreak, zombies are cured and exiled to secluded camps. There has been talk about rehabilitating post-zombies back into society.
Steve, the journalist reporting on the case, thinks the zombies still pose a threat to society. He ventures into one of these camps to prove to the world that rehabilitation is out the question.

The Longest Shortest Double Bassist

The life story of Jane Little, done for The New Yorker. You can watch it on The New Yorker's website, which includes a write up from Judith Thurman:

DESCENT by Peter Burr, Mark Fingerhut, and Forma

In 1562, Flemish artist Pieter Bruegel the Elder completed a painting called "The Triumph Of Death". In this panoramic landscape the sky is blotted out by black smoke; ships and dead fish litter the ocean shore; and an army of skeletons experiment with myriad death techniques. The living are badly outnumbered and the variety of fated tortures seems endless. There is little room for whimsy in this tableaux.

Over 200 years earlier, a nasty plague, commonly known as "The Black Death", left a cruel and massive mark on European civilization, wiping out half of Europe’s total population. This was a quiet pervasion of death - an invisible pathogen carried by herds of tired rats. This plague triggered a series of social and economic upheavals with profound effects on the history of medieval Europe, guiding its survivors into the sort of self-inflicted darkness pictured by the Elder Bruegel.

Looking back at this historical trajectory, Peter Burr, Mark Fingerhut, and Forma have created a spiraling interdimensional narrative aptly titled DESCENT - a meditation on one of humanity’s blackest hours. Taking the form of a desktop application, descent.exe gives the user a brief glimpse of a world descending into darkness - an unrelenting plague indifferent to the struggles of the user. There is a silver lining, however, tucked into the software’s final sweep. An equanimous watcher, reduced to a single eye, looks on as the plague of rats that has infested your desktop destroys itself.

This video is a recording of descent.exe running alongside Fingerhut's deepdesktop.exe.

Whale Heart

Silas lives in an isolated whaling town, toiling for months in the harsh and bloody trade on which he and his community depend.
However, in order to be capable of killing the creatures whose bone and blubber pay his wage, he has developed an ungodly method for extracting his emotions.
The time has now come for his only son to be initiated into the grim and dangerous whaling life, and Silas must be the one to teach him.
