head over heels

Kudos to the entire team of the movie. Head over Heels, is the name of the movie made by a group of animation students from National Film and Television School in the UK.

It is a 10-minute stop-motion animated short film written and directed by Timothy Reckart at the National Film and Television School. A team of eleven students made the film over the course of 15 months.

The movie is about a couple who are married and after many years of marriage, husband and wife have grown apart: he lives on the floor and she lives on the ceiling. They live separate, parallel lives, never talking, barely even looking at each other. And finally putting their love life back on the track.

The era of artistic movie posters may have passed, but we believe that the art in the artists hasn’t. Create a poster for the ‘14th Mumbai Film Festival’, enabling you to display your artistic talents.

Nuke Participants are expected to move away from generic elements of Film (movie reel, movie screen, clap board etc.) in their designs and portray cinema in a new and international light, bringing about a fresh perspective.

The poster must move away from the red and yellow theme that it has used over the years but yet keep the design international and young.

Moving away from the past, the poster must represent the vivacity and energy of the festival.
