Ds WAY, A short way
A journey around the block of an animated landscape. A 5 minutes journey through a composition made of audiovisual life extracts and mixed realities willing to walk your imagination all the way. Diverse as daily life, this short explores several animation and editing techniques, bringing together experiences from all visual arts. There are many ways you can go, Ds Way is one. Seat back and enjoy the view. Visuals by Diana Matoso. Music by Steve Lee.
A hand full of everything and the other full of nothing is a short inspired in portuguese proverbs about hands, such as: “I rather have 1 bird in my hand than 2 flying”, “I know this place as the palm of my hand” or, one of my favourites “You have hands of air and wind” [when you don’t catch things]. Visuals by Diana Matoso and Music by Carlos Leiria, 2005.
