From “Dress to Kill”…

Eddie Izzard: “Cake or Death”

from a very informative wiki entry about “Dress to Kill” page

“One of Izzard’s most well-known routines was performed during Dress To Kill: a satirical depiction of Church of England fundamentalism, wherein Izzard explains how Church of England fundamentalism would be impossible because people would be shouting out “You must have tea and cake with the vicar or you DIE!” and “CAKE OR DEATH?!” The latter phrase has become so well known that it is now the name of an Eddie Izzard fansite.”


Beautiful and imaginative, this stop-motion short visualizes sound. By Kijek/Adamski.

Found at Laughing Squid.

from the page
“Film inspired by the theoretic work of George Berkeley and basics of synesthetic perception. It’s a game of imagination provoked by sound. Individual sounds penetrating into the apartment of the main character relieved of their visual designates evoke images distant from its origins. Now full film is online.”

Watch at Vimeo for more credits and kudos.
