Matthias Hoegg "August" (2009)
I recently posted a preview of Matthias Hoegg's excellent short film, August, made at London's Royal College of Art. Well the good news is that he has (literally) just uploaded it to Vimeo. Set in a baking English summer, a group of teenagers make merry on a campsite whilst beneath their feet tiny ants go about their own business. The parties co-exist and never meet though the giant cast-offs of human activity leave their mark in ant land. As you watch this thoroughly stylish film remember that Matthias is still to complete his masters, his thesis film due to be completed in June. You may also realise why Beakus have already signed him up to their new team - and, quite coincidentally, there is more about his new company tomorrow.
