Stash 71 delivers another 30 stunning animation and VFX projects PLUS the incredible bonus film "Descendants" and a must-see selection of Behind the Scenes extras PLUS nine more bonus MP3 tracks courtesy of the fine people at Difrnt/Spitfire Music in Australia.
Nexus directing legends Smith & Foulkes kick off this issue with their clever and witty black and white opus for Panasonic, the all-Barcelona team of Dvein and Furia Digital make your skin crawl with photo-real cockroaches and termites for terminix, Ring of Fire turn their hometown of LA into one massively awesome skate park for Ubisoft, The Mill deconstruct your entire material world for director Peter Thwaites, Psyop find a "Whole New World" under the sea for AT&T, and Warsaw's Platige Image construct an intricate and beautiful closeup look at the workings of FIAT.
Imaginary Forces slips us into the broadcast and title design section with their wonderfully tactile opening for the Hanks/Speilberg epic "The Pacific", the Barcelona trio known as Physalia make their Stash debut with the title sequence for the 2010 MAD Festival, German student Johannes Schiehsl conjures a dynamic menagerie for the Stuttgart animation festival, Superestudio in Buenos Aires add a bunch of class to the "Moviecity" package for Fox Latin America, Hollywood's Syndrome pack a whole lot of stylish fun into MTV's 2010 Movie Awards, and NY's nailgun* let loose a crime wave of chaos to rebrand Nicktoons.
Meanwhile, Paris studio Moustache launches their series of infographic films with a strangely poetic look at the US military budget, Passion Pictures and director Jamie Hewlett bust out yet another spectacular Gorillaz video, and feature film VFX veteran Peter Szewczyk flies solo for The Maccabees "Young Lions" video.
Back in adland, Matt Pyke launches his particular brand of geometric fireworks to spice up a Nike corporate film, while Psyop take a quieter more stony approach to push new Nike shoe technology, MPC and Brussels studio Digital Golem team up for the minimalist but powerful NSPCC "Real Call" charity spot, and London's Seed Animation lose their head over a viral for whocanplay.co.uk.
Then we make a quick detour through two exhibition welcome films: the first from Japanese studio KOO-KI, mashing together classic characters of pioneering manga master Fujio Akatsuka, and then a light-as-air tour of Volkswagen's Autostadt from Nexus director Jim Le Fevre.
The last quarter of Stash 71 may lack any actual plan or coherence but large piles of brilliance often do, so here goes: Blur Studio blasts a whole lot of interstellar bad guys in the game cinematic for Star Wars: The Old Republic "HOPE"; director Conrado Almada and studio Brokolis do Brasil get crafty for the newest Skank video; Welsh director Ben Reed literally tears into a mountain of old books for The Wave Pictures track "Sweetheart"; Jacques Khouri continues his experiments into narrative structure with "Time & Again"; and Aardman cranks up the silly beats for "Is Fatboy Slim a DJ" from 2 Anonymous DJs.
We close Stash 71 by returning to something resembling sanity: a meticulously crafted short comedy about paranoia, serial killers and forensic obsession called "Something Left, Something Taken" from the Brooklyn studio Tiny Inventions.
