The Rescued film project aims at developing and archiving film rolls that, for some reason, were left undeveloped. In this video they present their work, and more specifically when they discovered 31 rolls shot my an American from WWII soldier.

This video analyses the scene of the restaurant door in the classic comedy Playtime, by Jacques Tati, and how the elements combine in intricate ways to build up the gag.

Last Fall, the French demogroup Cocoon uncovered this beautiful ambient demo: Insight In An Unseizable World. Its technical features, including real-time fluid dynamics or screen space reflections, manage to stay humble a leave the full stage to the superb direction. The special attention given to transition is outstanding, and I invite you to see by yourselves.
Three years ago, the German demoscene group, Still, was releasing an experiment at shaping some of the work of late painter Victor Vasarely as animated figures in a tribute demo: Beta. The unusual style from a demoscene standpoint, extrapolating what his work would have been if it were animated, was a success.
Last week Still released another demo with a similar geometric style and a brilliant direction: Intrinsic Gravity. It serves as an invitation to the demoparty NVScene, to take place in San Jose, California, this March.
I recommend you these two demos, they are a pleasure to watch.
