Are you a determined director or an up-and-coming animator?

The Dissatis Faction is looking for independent short films or web series to feature on our blog, and if you’ve got a talent for making cinematic treasures, we’d love to write about it.

Donnie: Why are you wearing that stupid bunny suit?

Frank: Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?

– Quote from Donnie Darko (2001)

Donnie Darko is, and for ever will be, one of my favourite films. I remember watching it when I was just thirteen or fourteen, and immediately feeling an

The film is based around the life of a troubled teenager called Donnie, who lives in the suburbs of Virginia. After being awakened in the night by a mysterious figure in a rabbit costume, he is told that the world will end in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes, and 12 seconds. The film then centres around a series of events within this time frame, all beginning with a jet engine crashing into Donnie’s bedroom, though its origins are unknown.

With themes of time travel, mental illness, and philosophical notions scattered throughout the film, it’s an engaging watch, and for me, a timeless classic. If it’s a film that you’re unfamiliar with, I highly recommend checking it out!

Art at Obzervashunal

In today’s post we’re showcasing art created by the amazing K’lee L, who’s work you can check out at Obzervashunal. A photographer, graphic artist, and natural creative, his work captures an array of emotionally evocative images.

K’lee L’s website is packed with amazing camera work, but describing him simply as a photographer misses out on a whole world of imaginative beauty. This is because K’lee L is an artist, blending graphic designs with perfectly captured moments, and adding new dimensions to his imagery.

With a large focus on nature, K’lee L, captures scenic moments, and often re imagines them with his own graphic twists. This is a pleasant departure from the uniformity of conventional nature photography, and it creates room for his artistic interpretations to flourish.

One of my favourite images is the The Egret’s morning catch, which is a graphic image based on a fantastic snap of an Egret hunting a fish in the morning hours. If you’re a nature lover with an eye for experimental work, I highly recommend following his fantastic blog!

Ode to the Freelancer

I’ve been paid for my work, but how long must it last?
When is my next project? Will I have to fast?
Should I return to the office? Go back to my past?
But my flexible schedule can be such a blast!

For there is nothing, that I wouldn’t write,
Some days I’ll stay up, and work all through the night.
This is my passion, though my wallet is light,
I can only hope, that with patience, my future is bright.

Between different company’s, you’ll see me roam,
And whenever I can, I’ll be working from home.
For I have no boss, I must do it alone,
Now I’ll keep my head down, and try not to moan.
