The new Onedotzero DVD is out today. If you haven’t discovered Onedotzero, check them out – they run an annual festival in London, and have a series of DVDs. They specialise in innovative visuals, so you get cutting edge animation and photography on all their releases. I’m planning to pick this DVD up on my way home tonight, but I notice it has at least one film on it that I’ve been looking for – Alex Chandon’s ‘Borderline’, mentioned a couple of months back.
Also out this week is the latest issue of Special10, which is a DVD magazine. It’s kind of pretentious, and 80% of each issue is only worth watching once, but so far there’s been at least one genius piece of film on each issue that makes it well worth the £5 cover price. I’ve mentioned it a few times before, and it remains one of the best outlets for short film and visuals. If you VJ at all, both Special10 and Onedotzero are essential. I’ll be picking up Special10 on the way home too (Fopp is a good place to find it, Seven Dials or Tottenham Court Road) , so I’ll let you know if there’s anything interesting, but I do know that Clemens Kogler is featured this time, who made this brilliant animation a while back.
So that’s two previously mentioned films made available on DVD in the same week. Nice.
