“ ‘Luscious’ is a 2D motion graphics video looks at human nature, human instinct and the power of imagination. Minimally styled illustrations tell the story of a beautiful woman who achieves satisfaction by having a psychedelic, metaphoric, sensual journey during dinner. The film’s goal is “not only deliver pleasure images but raise the spectre of unlimited pleasure.”

“A young boy releases a cloud into a church and it builds to a storm. Elwood’s Ark traces the journey of the water we drink, back 13.8 billion years through time and space to the beginnings of the Universe, challenging our perceptions of religion and redemption.

Water is something that everyone can relate to. Yet we rarely think about where it comes from, and how far its ancient molecular cocktail has travelled, to be here with us in this small moment – or how it will exist long after we’re gone. For Elwood’s Ark, we wanted to create a short film that would approach the subject of water’s journey, and our fragile relationship with it, putting into perspective human existence in the vastness of time and space.”

Light Cinematic Creative Short Film Directed by Patryk Kizny

“The first exoplanet was discovered in 1992 by Prof. Aleksander Wolszczan.

Until today, we have confirmed existence of over 2000 planets in our galaxy. One in five Sun-like stars have an Earth-like planet in its habitable zone so there’s about 11 billion Earth-like planets in our galaxy.

Whatever you imagined, might take place on one of them.

Light combines imagery of an alien planet with dance performance interwoven in a minimalistic narrative form to convey the notion of light as a primary origin of all life in the Universe.”
