Videos short docs "William Trubridge - Freediver" by The Avant/Garde Dairies AND "Hectometer - World Record" by Matthew Brown (about William Trubridge's freedive to bring light to the plight of Hector's Dolphins of New Zealand)

Watch "Hectometer - World Record" - This is the visual poem of William Trubridge's world record freedive to 100 meters (one hectometer, basically one football field length and back) in order to bring light to the plight of the world's smallest cetacean, the Hector's Dolphin of New Zealand.

With one breath of air and diving without weights, fins or any propulsive assistance, William descended to 101 meters in the waters of Dean's Blue Hole, Bahamas, the deepest blue hole in the world.

 This short documentary of the record attempts to transmit what it is like to freedive deep beneath the surface, and how we can return to explore our potential as an aquatic mammal in the search to help our endangered cousins of the seas. Website and more Videos (Press Interviews)

Short film "William Trubridge - Freediver" by The Avant/Garde Diaries 
Produced and directed by Kitty Bolhoefer and Fridolin Schoepper
Description of Freediver :

"When freediver William Trubridge prepares for another routine descent into the ocean riding only on a single breath - some nearly 400 feet down - his only immediate preparation is the cue to close his eyes and relax.

Any errant thought robs the body of valuable energy, as does any unnecessary movement or visual stimuli.

It’s no coincidence that this concentrated inner posture bears no small resemblance to the sensation of diving unencumbered and alone into the dark and mystical silence of the deep ocean.

It’s an experience completely foreign to those accustomed to scuba diving or snorkelling near the surface.

Just off the Honduran island of Roatán, The Avant/Garde Diaries joined William Trubridge on one of his dives, capturing the serene beauty of an activity with roots in Korea nearly seven thousand years ago.

Having himself only begun the activity ten years ago, Trubridge currently holds the world record for diving deepest, and he shows no sign of stopping."

Video CG animated short "Descendants" by director Heiko van der Scherm

Watch computer animated short film "Descendants" and the Making of

 "Descendants" is a 14-minute animated short directed by Heiko van der Scherm

The two main characters are flowers who grow on the edge of a clearing next to one another. One is old and jaded by a mysterious history ~ the other one still young, vivid and curious. The wish to attain the unattainable: something good can evolve from something evil. They are voiced by Whoopi Goldberg and Christy Scott-Cashman.

Destiny has brought these two together and it seems as if they would exist without possibility for change, until one day a visitor to the clearing brings something unexpected to their lives.

This short film started as a school diploma project by Heiko van der Scherm and Holger Schoenberger at the Institute of Animation (part of the Filmakademie Baden-Werttemberg).
