Edibalescapes, a vignette.

This film celebrates the circular economy on a micro level through a creative response. Edibalescapes is a community projection that aims to educate and demonstrate organic agroecology. This film also experiments cinematic and narrative techniques traversing between fiction, non fiction and narration. The texture of sound was an important element in this film to help drive the story. This project was coloured with FilmConvert.

Colombia

In the minds of many, Colombia is still regarded as a dangerous country. One which only summons up images of Pablo Escobar and the guerrilla fighters. Yet with the peace agreement in 2016, Colombia is finding peace. Filmmakers Simon Straetker and Tobias Hauser set out to discover this different side of Colombia— one that isn’t featured in the bombastic headlines. During their four-week road trip across the nation’s center and coast, they experienced the most friendly people from every stratum of Columbian society. People who welcomed them into their homes, shared their views on the world and gave them a candid glimpse into what the Colombians want their nation to be like. Their short film features those very encounters and places.

A week in Germany

8 days in Germany weren't enough, not even close. We visited many locations across SW and Southern Germany and we only wished we had more time. Bacharach and the Rhine, Freiburg and the Black Forest, Lindau and Lake Constance, Füssen and the Neuschwanstein Castle, Eibsee and Zugspitze. These were just some of the highlights of our trip.

A Love Story From Florence

It is hard to overstate how incredible the city of Florence is as a wedding location… truly breathtaking. Kim and Ken who got married in an ancient castle just outside Florence had the most amazing celebration filled with happiness, love and laughter. At White Balloon Films we believe that this non-linear narrative enhanced by Filmconvert's colours best represents their day. Watch as the story unfolds!

Ab Initio

Ab Initio ("from the beginning") is a short music-dance film that examines origin myths: personal narratives, our ideas of home, our happy places, the stories we tell ourselves about where we come from, and the ways these stories guide our movements through the world around us. It takes constant devotion and upkeep to believe in something, and like any other deeply-held beliefs, our origin stories can be a source of conflict when they come into dissonance with our surroundings and our experiences. Sometimes we fight them, sometimes we flee from them, but ultimately our personal mythologies are the bridge that connects our pasts with our futures. In between is the present, where we are both the author and the protagonist of our own stories.

Erin + Greg // Stormy Wedding in Ault Park

Erin and Greg had such a positive attitude towards the rain on their wedding day. After packing up all of my equipment, the rain picked back up and gave me the urge to get creative. I set up a light outside (covered with a plastic bag), went back inside and told them to "trust me". A few months later when I delivered the film, Erin wrote in her review: "One of my favorite moments from the wedding was when Houston pulled us aside and told us an idea he had - to shoot us slow dancing in the rain. The end product of his idea is something we will cherish forever. Taking time to soak (literally) everything in, to slow down, and dance in the storm with my husband was truly magic and defined the evening for us."
