David Knight - 9th Jan 2009

Gymnasts are drawn skywards from the city by airship tractor beams in Jasmin Jodry's film Star Games, which combines live action with animation, rotoscoping and archive footage.

The retro-futuristic-styled film was one of four created as art of the 2008 Getty Images Short & Sweet film challenge, in which the filmmakers (Laurie Hill, Big Red Button, Ian Mackinnon and Dominic Parker, and Jasmin) were given access to Getty's Hulton archive footage in the making of their films.

Star Games, also a video for the track by DJ Scanone, received an Honourable Mention in the prizegiving. All four films are here.
