Submarine Channel will be supporting Amos Mulders next film, Word! as part of the talent development project De Ontmoeting. This Dutch initiative aims to connect upcoming directors with the film industry. Amos is an exceptional animator, editor and vfx artist whose short films and music videos have a certain surreal, almost dadaist quality that drew us in. Check out Off The Ground – a short animated documentary based on a NUFORC hotline call recording from 1977. Great stuff.
Amos’ new film, Word!, will be a visual essay about language. In a time of increased polarisation, when everyone in the media and on the internet seems to be shouting their opinions, Word! will advocate nuance and promote understanding. All four films selected as part of this program will premiere in September 2017.
