Mathas | White Sugar Film Clip

Friday, October 28th, 2011 by John


Mathas White Sugar Still

After a good couple of months piecing together, the debut film for Perth based wordsmith Mathas is finally live and on-line. White Sugar focuses on personal flaws, habitual behaviour and the extreme consumption of heavily refined and processed foods in the Western world.

White Sugar is a mixture of stop motion photography, live-video and green screen, handmade out of an assortment of sweet treats and 30kg of salt (because it was cheaper than sugar). White Sugar is a collaboration between local creatives (and Cut & Paste family) Tom Mathieson (aka Mathas), John Macliver, Dominic Pearce, Nicole Norelli and Jordan Shields.

As you’ll see when you scroll below the clip is a swirling journey through a vicious candyland, where ripe raspberries and Chico Babies go for the throat, whilst the product advertising of yesteryear repeats in a droning, endless loop. The only way forward is towards total zombification and a posse of buzzword angels on your shoulder, lulling you to a lolly-encrusted catatonia. Enjoy!

THE HAPPS IN THE TRAPS //

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010 by John

So sections of the Cut & Paste office have inadvertently been involved in some serious technical issues, resulting in our main MAC tower currently nothing more than an oversized and fragile book stop… So insted of bringing you the full 45min edit of Kit Pop x Zeke filmed at DeadWeight! a few weeks back, as well as a bunch of our Revelation Film Festival interviews with Cory McAbee (Stingray Sam), Jennifer Mass (Wheedle’s Groove), Jim Morton (Russ Meyer’s – Double Bill), Gary & Jeff (Sons of Steel)… we can’t!

So instead I thought we’d have a quick look at what some of the Cut & Paste family have been up to over the last month:

Justin Elwin:

Cut & Paste sound man and Paper Chain founder Justin Elwin (aka Kit Pop) has been working on a new 10×10x1 project… that equates to ten beats over ten days with one mpc. Below is a taste of what’s to come:

The full project will be availabe for free download once completed.
* Word around the office is that story boarding has begun for the ‘official’ film clip to the Kit Pop and Ta-Ku track Bounce, with some pretty crazy ideas being thrown around.

Mat De Koning:

Now where does Mat fit into the Cut & Paste scheme of things is always a tricky one to work out, but essentially he’s our go to festival camera man and the source of most of our skate footage. Along with all his other bits & bobs, Mat has spent the last five years following around some of Perth’s most intriguing creative’s including the affable Will Stoker… Here is a quick edit he did last week for Will Stoker and The Embers- Ten Thousand Horses, includes footage from the Cut & Paste crew’s coverage of the 2010 WAMis

*I hear a whisper that Will will be lending his vocals to a track by a hot local electronic artist

Dominic Pearce:

Directed by Cut & Paste casual camera/sound man Dom has been hard at work on a bunch on clips recently, including the new one for adult-contemporary super group Basement Birds. I was on board as the on-location production assistant and with a one-day shoot along Brookton Highway this is what manifested:

* I hear that Dom is working on the new Tomas Ford clip…

Once the MAC is back… we will upload some ‘exclusive’ videos shoot on the Flip on-location.

Stay tuned next week for when we see what some of the others boys have been doing… until then check out The Community’s new website – it’s really nice!
