VIDEO SNACKS SERVED DRY
MUTE films have shown, and continue to show, at a number of international film festivals and WebFests including:
June 2017, “Dress Code” awarded a Vimeo Staff Pick.
In early 2017, “The Searchers” played as a short in 25 cinemas across the USA as part of Screenvision’s new Pre-show package for Upscale Art House theatres from New York to California.
Dec 2016, The MUTE Series selected as one of the Top Five Indie Series of 2016 by Tubefilter
Here are a few links to websites that have had their curiosity piqued by MUTE films:
And here's an interview that the NO DIALOGUE project in Bristol conducted with Andy Lambert about the series.
Here’s a selection of things they’ve said:
“Funny, thoughtful, and surprisingly twisty… The MUTE Series represents the spirit of digital content… The MUTE Series is worthy of respect — and, perhaps, study.”
TUBEFILTER www.tubefilter.com (December 2016 - Top Five Indies Series of 2016)
“The Mute Series has a short but intense wit.”
“In addition to being funny and surprisingly twisted, this series has understood what the post-aesthetic treatment of the 21st century is going to be… Here is a talent that should be signed by Studio+ or Blackpills.”
"The MUTE Series is a compelling experiment in minimalism…. In very short periods of time, Lambert manages to convey a broad range of emotions while also showing off some beautiful cinematography.”
TUBEFILTER www.tubefilter.com (October 2016)
“Just as life is filled with moments of laughter, sadness and intensity, The MUTE Series captures that unending variety of experiences in a powerful and memorable way.”
SNOBBY ROBOT www.snobbyrobot.com
“MUTE is a selection of short, dialogue free, single shot, no camera movement films which are a clever and often funny bite-size slice of life.”
“We love this hymn (‘Sound Sleeper’) to the ingenuity that can result from extreme sloth.”
THE IDLER www.idler.co.uk
"Like a modern-day Jacques Tati, Lambert creates his own absurdist universe out of life’s funny moments.”
JOANNA HOGG, Director of ‘Exhibition’
