From Ikeas homeland, a furniture object oriented musical short movie. Six drummers participate in a well planned musical attack in the suburbs. As an elderly couple leave their apartment the drummers take over. On everyday objects they give a concert in four movements: kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and livingroom. The drummers perform on everything from dogdishes and slippers to toiletbrush and microwave oven. The hidden music in the household objects is just waiting to be brought to life. The movie is the work of Sweden duo Johannes Stjärne Nilsson and Ola Simonsson, members of Kostr Films, an independent production company that works with short, documentry and featurefilms as well as music production and art projects. Johannes Stjärne Nilsson has a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in industrial design and is also a cartoonist and illustrator. Ola Simonsson has a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in music education as singing-master and is also a singer and musician.
“The Perfect Date” is a short film from Sothea Studios, an independent production company comprised of American and Cambodian/American filmmakers. The film is only 15 minutes long, but it’s unlike anything before. What I mean by that is the lead actor is an American, but the movie is shot in Khmer (the official language of Cambodia), and I don’t mean that it’s dubbed! These actors are actually speaking Khmer! Starring Jared Davis as the lead. And co-stars Paula Danh, and Sokham Dira; both Cambodian/American. The story is hilarious, and the concept is totally unique! Directed by Nathaniel Nuon and produced by Wade Miller, Jared Davis, and Nathaniel Nuon, this film is sure to make you laugh. Sothea StudioS is taking the Khmer film market to the next level of production quality. This is a great looking film.
