Boiler Room launches film platform 4:3, a “Netflix for the underground”

Listscreen-shot-2018-05-23-at-17.57.34 Work / Film Short film Krista demonstrates the power of drama to overcome trauma

From the horror of Weinstein to the strength of the #metoo movement, it’s been difficult to have a conversation about acting in the past year without the shadow of sexual harassment looming large. Tapping into this atmosphere, short film Krista by director Danny Madden explores the low-level threat constantly levelled at women and the empowerment that can come from reclaiming those experiences. The film tells the story of Krista, a high school student using her theatre class as catharsis. “The idea came from a combination of stories we’d heard from friends and that first point of realising that the world has teeth,” explains Danny. “It aims to show that helpless feeling of not knowing where to point frustration and anxiety, and how the theatre can create a space for releasing it.”
 
Peppered with powerful cut scenes between Krista’s performances and the emotional experiences she’s channelling, the atmosphere of the film is made all the more intense by its sound design. Foot stomps, claps and vocal exercises from the drama group’s warm-up were crafted into a rhythmic pattern which builds in momentum as the film progresses.

2001-a-space-odyssesy-film-itsnicethat-list Features / Film "Something bold, something pure" – the 50-year long legacy of 2001: A Space Odyssey

When 2001: A Space Odyssey premiered on 10 May 1968 – 50 years ago today – it somehow captured the imagination of its viewers: an audience who was yet to experience footage of the moon landing over a year later. Packed full of lengthy sequences and free from dialogue or even sound, its imagery, directed by Stanley Kubrick, is tranquil to the point of being static at times. This combined with its understandably puzzling ending meant the film received mixed reviews from critics upon its release. Despite this, it quickly garnered a ferocious cult following and became the highest grossing film of that year: the only Kubrick motion picture to hold this status.

Folder-studio-film-itsnicethat-alt-list Work / Film Folder Studio's interactive documentary K-Town '92 highlights our "desensitisation to societal trauma"

The 1992 Los Angeles riots were a series of riots, lootings and arsons that occurred from 29 April – 4 May. The unrest began after the acquittal of four officers from the Los Angeles Police Department who were involved in the brutal beating and arrest of African American taxi driver, Rodney King. The riots began after footage of the incident was broadcast and widely viewed on television resulting in the most destructive civil disturbance in America’s history, totalling in over a billion dollars of damage.

Duncancowles-film-itsnicethat-list Work / Film Duncan Cowles' new film explores the panicky feeling that a creative idea might not be amazing enough

Following on from Duncan Cowles’ brilliant Taking Stock film at the end of last year, the director is back with a new film which again uses generic stock footage to piece together a very relatable narrative. Where Taking Stock touched a nerve with freelance creatives through Duncan’s own tale of trying to make a side hustle from selling stock footage online with little financial success, It’s Not Amazing Enough, commissioned by Ted, explores the panicky feeling of worrying your work might not quite be up to scratch.

Tom-fisher-catherine-prowse-the-need-to-be-alone-the-school-of-life-film-itsnicethat-list Work / Film Rod puppets in intricate felt sets profess The Need to Be Alone for Alain de Botton

Not long out of Kingston’s Illustration and Animation course, Tom Fisher and Catherine Prowse have directed a charming and impressively detailed short film for The School of Life, made entirely from hand-stitched felt. Featuring a cast of rod puppets shot in a live action format, The Need to Be Alone stars a red-spectacled, introverted protagonist called Alan – a tribute to its writer and narrator Alain de Botton. Throughout the film, Alan navigates a series of potentially awkward social scenarios as Alain professes the importance of having time alone to process these interactions.

Listnokwakha-mboyisa Work / Photography Thom Pierce on using photography to amplify the protests of a rural South African community

“I have a passion for making work that addresses injustice,” says photographer Thom Pierce, whose latest project, Postcards from Xolobeni, transformed his portraits of a community threatened by a proposed titanium mine into powerful letters of protest. “I want to take important stories and make them something that can’t ignore be ignored,” Thom continues. “I want to go further and think more broadly to find ways that engage large audiences in a subject that they might not ever know about and then give them a means to engage, participate and join the fight.”

Elaineconstantine-teadance-photography-list Features / Photography "Unless you’ve put the graft in, you’ll be found out": the action-packed photography of Elaine Constantine

“I was a teenager in the late 1980s and unemployed,” Elaine Constantine tells me first off. “Like most kids my age at that time in the north west of England, my prospects were bleak. I’d been at a bad school and unless you’d been lucky enough to go to a grammar school, you came away at 16 still struggling with the basics.” Renowned for her honest, expressive and observational photography, Elaine is now one of the most well-respected photographers in the fashion industry, a Bafta-nominated film director and has exhibited in legendary exhibitions like Tate Britain’s Look at Me and the V&A’s Imperfect Beauty. 


Oscarmitchell-illustration-shelfheroes-itsnicethat-list Work / Illustration "It feels a bit like knowing languages": Oscar Mitchell on his varied illustration practice

Illustrator Oscar Mitchell has been very busy with his multitude of drawing tools. Moving back to Glasgow, “for what seems like a few weeks but is coming on eight months,” and working from his home studio, the 2016 It’s Nice That graduate has been “bashing out lots of different work exploring themes as varied as acne and Bloody Marys,” he tells us.

Osheyi-adebayo-graphic-design-itsnicethat-list Work / Graphic Design Osheyi Adebayo's daily designs utilise unusual colour palettes and an “aged digital sentimentality”

Graphic designer Osheyi Adebayo’s output is impressive, to say the least. We last checked in with him around this time last year where his portfolio of school text book-inspired designs was already jam-packed. Since then, the London-based designer has been tirelessly producing posters on a daily basis, uploading them to his Instagram account.

Dropbox_poster_may_nicer_tuesdays_nadia_hernandez_carlin_diaz_itsnicethatlistimage Partnership / Dropbox: Monthly Poster Nadia Hernández and Carlín Díaz fuse their characters, forms and colours in a poster celebrating workers

Two Venezuelans, one in Paris, one in Melbourne, met across Dropbox Paper this month to co-create an exuberant poster, fusing their complementary creative techniques. Nadia Hernández brought along her paper-cut, folklore-inspired shapes and type; Carlín Díaz brought his charming, textural characters and forms. The final poster will be given out to every Nicer Tuesdays attendee on 29 May, and here, we share a behind-the-scenes look at their collaborative process.


Rosiematheson-boys-photography-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography Rosie Matheson’s series, Boys, explores the nuanced nature of modern masculinity

Muscle mass and material success may have been markers of manhood fifty years ago but, over the past few decades, we have seen the face of masculinity undergo significant changes. Photographer Rosie Matheson has spent the past three years documenting young men to better understand what modern masculinity looks like. “I was surrounded by photography from a young age; my grandad worked at Kodak and photographer Zed Nelson is a close friend of my parents. I’ve been comfortable with a camera in my hands since I can remember, and it’s always been my main form of expressing how I feel and of navigating the world around me,” the photographer tells It’s Nice That.

Tim-lahan-kiosk-publication-itsnicethat-lis-alt Work / Publication Illustrator Tim Lahan’s latest zine is an “ode to being self-destructive”

Every year, in May, hoards of publishers and book-obsessives flock to the Tate Modern in London to ogle over the tasty publications and prints that people have been producing over the previous 12 months at Offprint. This year, one of the featured publishers manning a stand was Kiosk, where it used the occasion to launch several zines, one of which, was created by It’s Nice That fave, Tim Lahan.

Nickballon-photography-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography Photographer Nick Ballon's series is a portrait of Bolivia’s second largest city and its people

Anglo-Bolivian photographer Nick Ballon describes his heritage as the “backbone to [his] photographic practice as an artist”. One ongoing project, for example, explores the possible implications of a country’s relationship to the coast, and the effects it can have on its population; Bolivia is a landlocked country whereas life in the UK means being within a 70-mile radius of the sea at all times. In Nick’s latest series Ciudad Rebelde, however, the photographer turns his lens on life in the Bolivian city of El Alto.

Olivierdegorce-fridgefoodsoul-editionpatrickfrey-publication-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography Photographer Olivier Degorce's new book lets you snoop in strangers' fridges

It’s quite difficult to describe how fascinating it is to look in someone else’s fridge, isn’t it? It’s totally normal really, everyone’s got one after all and everyone’s got to eat. But still, when offered the chance to take a peek at what condiments someone has, what their go-to snacks, meals, veg or drinks are, you’ll always take the offer and snoop. It’s this exact reason why French photographer Olivier Degorce’s latest book Fridge Food Soul is so captivating to flick through, despite its typical subject matter of quite literally what is in different people’s fridges.

Robertrubbish-spiritussoho-publication-itsnicethat-list Work / Publication Robert Rubbish takes us on a hazy, illustrated day of the places and people of Soho

Illustration fanatics are more than familiar with the work of Robert Rubbish. London dwellers will be familiar with the sight of him too. Usually found in Soho he can be spotted in the cafes and pubs populated by a unique community, who in an area of consistent gentrification manage to hold on to its inclusive and historic personality.

Studio-moniker-digital-itsnicethat-10 Work / Digital Studio Moniker’s collaborative painting tool turns the Earth’s surface into a giant canvas

We’re big fans of Studio Moniker here at It’s Nice That. Based in Amsterdam, the interaction design studio churns out project after project that continues to surpass expectations and its most recent, titled Painted Earth, is no exception. Launched inline with the opening of the Galileo Reference Centre, the project sees Studio Moniker creating an interactive, collaborative painting tool that turns the surface of the Earth into a giant canvas.

John-morgan-venice-biennale-2018-british-pavilion-island-identity-graphic-design-itsnicethat_list-2 Partnership / British Council: Venice Architecture Biennale 2018 Tales of the sea: behind John Morgan’s identity for Island, the British Pavilion at Venice Biennale

For this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale, the British Pavilion takes on the provocative theme of Island, with a bare-bones public space atop the building’s roof. Below, the building will sit empty of exhibits. Both the elevated platform and vacuous space below will host events throughout the Biennale’s six-month run, with a broad range of creative contributors interpreting the subject of Island in depth, so it was imperative the branding not interfere with this openness and diversity. It was a compelling task for designer John Morgan, then, to come up with a visual identity, and he laughs as he remembers the early meetings in the building’s void.

Pierluigimacor-photography-itsnicethat-4list Work / Photography Photographer Pierluigi Macor travels to southern Italy to capture interesting characters

Since the release of his book Bowie, Texas earlier this year, Italian-born photographer Pierluigi Macor has stayed very busy. One particularly striking project, which was commissioned by SZ Magazin, saw Pierluigi travel to a small town near Naples popular with the local population’s elderly citizens. “We didn’t know anyone there so we simply decided to show up and see what might happen,” Pierluigi tells It’s Nice That.
