We created a new and animated interpretation of 'The Garden Of Earthly Delights' by Hieronymus Bosch ( http://tinyurl.com/zf6u9nu ). We were chosen to go crazy on the middle panel. So we did... in 4K!!! Unfortunately the exhibition at MOTI Museum has ended. Hope you got to see the end result. It was HUGE and AWESOME! But don't worry, it will pop up again somewhere... www.motimuseum.nl facebook: https://www.facebook.com/STUDIO-SMACK-287330375863 | twitter: https://twitter.com/STUDIOSMACK | website: http://www.studiosmack.nl ---- Official Press Release: PARADISE, a contemporary interpretation of The Garden of Earthly Delights Studio Smack, best known for their music video Witch Doctor by De Staat, have released a new animation: a contemporary interpretation of one of the most famous paintings by the Early Dutch master Hieronymus Bosch, The Garden of Earthly Delights. In their latest work, the group cleared the original landscape of the middle panel of Bosch’s painting and reconstructed it into a hallucinatory 4K animation. The creatures that populate this indoor playground embody the excesses and desires of 21st century Western civilization. Consumerism, selfishness, escapism, the lure of eroticism, vanity and decadence. All characters are metaphors for our society where loners swarm their digital dream world. They are symbolic reflections of egos and an imagination of people as they see themselves - unlike Bosch's version, where all individuals more or less look the same. From a horny Hello Kitty to a coke hunting penis snake. From an incarnate spybot to headless fried chickens. These characters, once precisely painted dream figures, are now digitally created 3D models. All of them have been given their own animation loop to wander through the landscape. By placing them altogether in this synthetic fresco, the picture is never the same. What the animation and Bosch’s triptych have in common is that you’ll hardly be able to take it all in, you can watch it for hours. ‘Paradise’ was commissioned by the MOTI Museum in The Netherlands for the exhibition New Delights, which is part of the Hieronymus Bosch 500-year anniversary. A gigantic video installation of this work is exhibited in the Museum until the 31st of December.
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. Want to know more about The Animation Workshop?

"It marks the arrival of one of the most unique new voice's in American Cinema." - James Kaelan, Bright Ideas “One of the years most original debuts.” - Peter Debruge, Variety In this modern-day vision of Mother Mary’s pilgrimage, a woman crosses the scorched landscape of the American Southwest. Reinvented and told entirely through movement, the film playfully deconstructs the role of this woman, who encounters a world full of bold characters that are alternately terrifying and sublime. MA is a journey into the visceral and the surreal, interweaving ritual, performance, and the body as sculpture. The absence of dialogue stirs the senses, and leads us to imagine a new ending to this familiar journey. The virgin mother gives birth to our savior, but is also challenged to save herself.
