Wheel Of Life
Paper is one of the most versatile and beautiful mediums available to makers, able to create and reproduce entire worlds at the cut of a blade. After years of experience perfecting this craft, The Makerie Studio teamed up with Director André Gidoin to magically bring one of these worlds to life, by creating and filming a hand made paper Zoetrope.
A zoetrope is a device that produces the illusion of motion from a rapid succession of static pictures. Often referred to as the Wheel Of Life, we were inspired to tell the story of one zoetrope in particular, that one night came to life.

We Wander (by Dvein)
A bunch of animals hide in the darkness of the night, motivated by their very own instinct, not feeling menaced by anything or anyone. But a light disturbs their peaceful rest, they feel troubled when their land is invaded and everything becomes unexpected. The Sun rises, the animals leave, the sun light baths the land and we keep wandering around, not knowing where and when we are and nothing matters anymore.
Nils Frahm - Says
Beautifully meditative piano track by Nils Frahm, from the ‘Spaces’ LP, released last fall on Erased Tapes. Video by Romain Assénat & Ana Silva. ‘Improvisation with inks on glass and a video-feedback device, captured live without any post-production.’
Ancients (by Nicholas Buer)
This film follows the ancient cycle of sunset to night to sunrise. A continuous loop of perpetual movement that has been unbroken since the dawn of time, and the only true constant in our lives.
Bonobo - Get Thy Bearings (Director’s cut) - Official Video - Late Night Tales (by Tadas Svilainis)
It peels the shade from eyes, passion, sparks the life and resurrects those who have avoided it. Constrained by obscurity fear, for the first time we inhaled fresh air. Nothing else existed for a moment there… We felt serene and wanted no more…
A Sense of Place - Argyll Forest Park (by Max Smith)
The first in a series of short films, providing viewers with a window into natural habitats found in the UK through the use of cinematography.
