Stash 54 goes straight for the jugular with a killer mix of
techniques and talent, a big, fat behind the scenes section,
PLUS the latest work from DAf, Flaunt, BIGSMACKtv and Motus
Digital on the bonus disk.
The main program opens with the shattering power of
Mainframe.s new CG promos for UK reality show .Rehab. then
counters with a series of exceptionally fun spots including
Coke .Avatar. from Oscar nominated Nexus duo Smith and
Foulkes, Superfad.s hilarious ode to super-hot bunny love
for Durex (on the cover), Psyop.s frame-perfect insect
.Heist. for Coke, Passion Pictures. CG and stop motion
prehistoric hi-jinx for Axe/Lynx, Iloura.s fantastic take
on summer parades for Nestle, and a psychotropic lesson on
why we don.t eat Yellow Snow cooked up in the Nike Brand
The party continues i n the broadcast and title design line-
up with Capacity and Kidrobot teaming up to kick butt for
Cartoon Network, Salt adds flavor to The Clayton Brothers
Signature ID for Fuel, Berlin.s dyrdee boots up the MTV Game
Awards premiere and Athen.s Nomint pushes E4 IDs as far into
weird-land as they.ll go before Juan Manuel Codo and Julian
Martin return us to quasi-sanity with their engrossing and
moody feature film titles for "Mentiras Piadosas".
Then with the pace eased for a moment, we have time to
appreciate Vinh Dickson.s powerful new short exposing
contemporary slavery called .The Veiled Commodity..
The sheer diversity of work in the second half of 54 is
foreshadowed by the four disparate works comprising the
Nokia .Beautiful Connections. project, and nicely demostrated
by Bonzom.s cheeky .Happy New End. clip for Passion and the
absolutely mad TV mini-pilot for .Lisa. by former Gobelins
students Bertrand Piocelle and Marco Nguyen at La Station
Animation in Paris.
Music videos on 54 include Marco Sandeman.s abstracted light
creation for Paul McCartney.s .222., Karni & Saul.s CG and
stop motion opus .Float. for Flogging Molly, Yuval and Merav
Nathan.s mesmerizing .Her Morning Elegance. for Oren Lavie,
.Horse Mountain. with both animation and music created by
the members of The Buddy System, Wyld Stallyons. tribute to
unrequited monster love for The Blizzards, and Geoffroy De
Crecy.s cuddly cardboard creation for Rex the Dog.s
Stash 54 closes with the frenzied fun of PandaPanther.s
.2009 Zodiac Race. for Asics but not before we squeeze in
more inspiring new clips from Imaginary Forces for Microsoft,
Buraco de Bala for Redbull, The Ambassadors with the .Big
Bank Theory. for Alex, and two very noteworthy Stash
newcomers: Corporacao Fantastica in Sao Paulo and Sticky
Monster Lab in Seoul, Korea.
The BONUS FILM on Stash 54 is the landmark open source 3D
phenomenon known as .Big Buck Bunny. from the Blender
Institute in the Netherlands.

from Belgium.s Meakusma including brain-expanding tracks from,
Bachel, Boris & Brecht Debackere, Terrence Dixon, Immer.Chic,
Trifonic and Rony & Suzy.
The BEHIND THE SCENES line-up is bulging with insightful
features on five projects including Superfad.s Durex .Get It
On., PandaPanther.s .2009 Zodiac Race., Iloura.s .Summer
Parade., Mainframe.s .Rehab., and .Big Buck Bunny..
