“Man is the only animal that deals in that atrocity of atrocities War. He is the only one that gathers his brethren about him and goes forth in cold blood and calm pulse to exterminate his kind. He is the only animal that for sordid wages will march out… and help to slaughter strangers of his own species who have done him no harm and with whom he has no quarrel…. And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood off his hands and works for the universal brotherhood of man with his mouth.”

Civil war, Captain America speech to Iron Man quoting Mark Twain.

Rattle from Ed Chen on Vimeo.

This was my first animated short film that I made as a graduate student at USC’s Cinema School. I wanted to make a film about the nature of humans, envy and the violence we see in society.

"Technology fails a woman isolated in her home."

As the cinematographer of this film, I would like to thank the creators Tara and Brian for the opportunity to be a part of their production. I would like to extend a big thank you to my production designer/partner in mischief Jamie. Many thanks to everyone who was involved. Always a pleasure to work with great people, especially when you’re in the low budget trenches.

Please share and feel free to repost or embed. I’m not looking to profit financially in any way off this film, but if you need a cinematographer or production designer, I know some great people… :)

NOWHERE (2009) / central scene / for Pina from Dimitris Papaioannou on Vimeo.

NOWHERE was created by DIMITRIS PAPAIOANNOU in 2009 to inaugurate the renovated Main Stage of the Greek National Theatre in Athens.

This central scene is dedicated to the memory of PINA BAUSCH.

NOWHERE explores the nature of the theatrical stage itself, a spatial mechanism continually transformed and redefined by the human presence to denote any place, and yet designed to be a non-place. 26 performers measure the space with their bodies, and pit themselves against its dimensions and technical capabilities in a site-specific performance that can be presented nowhere else.

Το ΠΟΥΘΕΝΑ δημιουργήθηκε το 2009 από τον ΔΗΜΗΤΡΗ ΠΑΠΑΪΩΑΝΝΟΥ για να εγκαινιάσει την ανακαινισμένη Κεντρική Σκηνή του Εθνικού Θεάτρου.

Αυτή η κεντρική σκηνή του έργου είναι αφιερωμένη στη μνήμη της ΠΙΝΑ ΜΠΑΟΥΣ.

Tο ΠΟΥΘΕΝΑ είναι ένα έργο για τον χώρο της θεατρικής σκηνής. Τον χώρο-μηχανή που μεταβάλλεται διαρκώς και καθορίζεται από την ανθρώπινη παρουσία, για να σημαίνει αμέτρητους τόπους, ενώ έχει σχεδιαστεί για να είναι μη-τόπος. 26 ερμηνευτές μετρούν και αναμετριούνται με τις διαστάσεις και δυνατότητες του χώρου σε ένα ειδικά σχεδιασμένο έργο που δεν θα μπορεί να παρουσιαστεί πουθενά αλλού.
