1. BEARS ON STAIRS from DBLG on Vimeo.

    DBLG’s in-house studio projects are a platform for us to experiment with creative ideas and above all have fun. For this project we wanted to explore and combine 3d animation, 3D printing with stop frame animation.

    Massive thanks for Blue Zoo for the character animation blue-zoo.co.uk and Resonate resonatemusic.co.uk for the audio mix and sound design.

  3. Skydweller from Barbican Centre on Vimeo.

    Skydweller is a portrait of London as seen from the top of Cromwell Tower, one of the three residential towers in the Barbican Estate. This film combines over 5,000 photographs taken from the top of the tower with specially composed music by Tom Rosenthal and poetry by Paul Haworth.

    Haworth, an artist working in rap, fiction, poetry and performance said “whenever one looks at great cities from high up, it is a beautiful and threatening proposition. Watching this footage, I was fascinated by how wild London appeared. It feels like an entirely economic landscape and yet there is still so much romance in it. Up in the sky, you are always imagining what is going on down there.”

    With many thanks to the Likierman-Hale family for allowing us to film from their apartment in Cromwell Tower.

    skydweller
    this one’s for us
    about us there are no official observations
    but what about this
    in love
    first come
    those familiar shapes
    cranes
    every day
    different or the same
    come combat
    canopy
    crushed
    in love
    you are open
    coming to life
    come banksmen required
    what do you do
    what do you make
    the do make do
    make reasons out of
    no make-up you
    make no mistake
    I make it up as I go
    I make it up as I go
    I make it up
    master dominator
    cold, light and dark
    you are watching Nighthawks
    touch touch
    take off
    it’s like everywhere you go
    you come back
    come back, Philadelphia
    come back, Tallinn
    Doha
    Belfast
    Singapore
    Prague
    Beirut
    Tehran
    Hong Kong
    Dallas
    Dubai
    Vancouver
    come back
    come back and kiss kiss Lewisham
    or in East Ham
    where is that
    where’d you go
    sunrise
    lovers inside
    duvet covers
    for a couple days
    a week tops
    so
    the sheds
    the roomshares
    so what
    what’s left
    come canvas
    canopy
    corrupt
    in love
    you are open
    unfinished or out of focus
    arts and crafts
    a work in progress
    to remember your name
    my solitude waitress
    my acting emperor
    billed as infrastructure
    to open doors
    tender cables
    your face lights up
    and I’m faithful
    to every coconut holder
    to draw a moustache
    on every statue, bust
    incapable of grief
    and if there’s surface damage
    there’s a surface we’re skimming
    to money troubles
    those troubles are mine
    to troubles in love
    painted in lustre
    designed as an end elevation
    to a finishing touch
    what holds you up

    Paul Haworth (Lancaster, 1982) is an artist, working in rap, fiction, poetry and performance. He has written three novels, the Silk Handkerchiefs trilogy, published through TRUE TRUE TRUE. He works at the Barbican Centre as a Host.

  6. Europe 24 from NATS on Vimeo.

    This data visualization of Air Traffic in Europe was created from real flight data. It shows the air traffic which flies on a typical summer day and highlights the intensity of the operation in Europe - an operation which runs 24x7x365.

    NATS and the UK are at the heart of the operation. With Heathrow as the busiest international airport in Europe, and Gatwick as the busiest single runway airport in the world, we play a key role in ensuring air traffic under our control in European airspace is as safe and efficient as it can be.
