HAVE SUM NURV_3

HAVE SUM NURV (Newest Unconventional Romanian Videos) will be here once every two weeks, to keep you up to date with the best (in our opinion) unconventional clips, music-videos or short-films created by Romanian producers or artists.

Why just Romanian videos? Because we’re a Romania-based webzine. But as we see it, that’s just temporary (you heard us!). We came up with NURV in order to cover a larger amount of good video stuff in less time and to give you a better perspective on what is worth watching, just in case you missed something.

So here’s our third freshly-made 9-entries (that’s all, yeah!) list of unconventional videos, which includes Romanian clips and films created and published in the last two weeks (in random order):

HAVE SUM NURV (3rd Sequence)

“NUD IN TRANSILVANIA”, BY FOTOPUNCT

Transylvania seems to enjoy nude workshops these days. After seeing tones of teasers and pictures from the recent photo-workshop organized by Romanian artist Bogdan Botofei, they actually decided to make a video and post it on social media. The workshop took place at Sighisoara, at the beginning of July, and the video features violin music, nude models walking through the woods, through the sheeps (!?) and you can see the whole work and all the people who activate behind a good photoshoot. You can also see in the video Saga Xux, guest on Cultartes. 

“ORIEL”, BY NICU STANESCU

As we already wrote about it, ORIEL is an unconventional video fairytale master-minded by Romanian filmmaker and director Nicu Stanescu, and probably one of the most well-structured and well-thought recent film projects in the country. The stop-motion animation follows the story of a doll named Oriel, who starts an adventure in a self-imposed quest of finding its creator, who apparently abandoned it. Here’s the trailer: 

“FLUX”, BY CRONOS STUDIO

David Erwin-Sever (from Cronos Studio) plays with the perpetual motion smoke in this half-minute short-video montage. As he says on his Vimeo profile, FLUX is an experiment resulted from mixing Cinema 4D and TurbulenceFD. I sincerely have no idea what those are, but the result is a nice visual piece of video.

“NOW PLAYING IN BUCHAREST”, BY ROBERT LAWRENCE

Robert Lawrence, creator: “While on my Fulbright last year in Romania I was taken by the thickly layered and weathering public posters for performances. In their transient and disposable nature they seemed like an amplification of the disposable star system that they promote. On any given day you would see hundreds of posters on the street and most of them would be in miserable tattered shape, like the stills in this video. How can they NOT be read as critiques of superficial and transient pop culture?”

“PORCUL SPINOS” (MAKING OF), BY LUNO

The video shows us the making of ‘Porcul Spinos’, music video of Pinholes, produced by LUNO (Iasi, Romania). Without any other details, you can watch the actual music video here (we previously talked about it here). Video by Iustin Surpanelu, Romanian filmmaker and guest on Cultartes.

“DID YOU GET MY KISS”, BY ANDREEA VERDE

Green, green everywhere. Andreea Verde and Raluca Porumbacu put their colorful heads together and come up with a stunning music video featuring Andreea Verde (en. for Green), her eye-catching hair and her voice. While the short-film itself is something like a fashion, musical, artsy kind of video, the lyrics were written by Shoshana Rose Stern and the clip was produced by Horatiu Vladila.

“LA MAISON DU THE”, BY DRAGOS BADICU

We don’t really care about the message (advertising, maybe!?), or the French taste of the video title itself. We came here for the attactive thigh, and kept staying for the beautiul lady (Roxana Bratosin). And yes, the video filmed in Brasov by Dragos Badicu it’s also nicely done, even though at some point you kind of get sick of slow-motion.

“VISSI D’ARTE”, BY MARIO DANCE

Well, that’s something you’d definitely want to watch. Drums, tribal atmosphere, energic movements! Even though the video it’s nothing more than a series of highlights, it keeps you captivated, pumped and with a strong desire of watching the entire show of Mario Grosu.

“DECANT”, BY SEBASTIAN COSTE

Decant is a timelapse, with nothing special in particular, except the soundtrack and the good combination with the timelapse itself. The soundtrack is made by Sebastian Coste, while the timelapse was created with 2180 pictures taken with Canon 70D and Sigma 30mm lens.
