All the films made by Velikanov in REAL VIDEO

Some like it without sugar, 1999, MJPEG, 3 min.
Director: Andrey Gagarin (alias Andrey and Julia Velikanov)
Cast: Konstantin Zvezdotchetov, Julia Velikanov
Music: Dmitri Shostakovich
I like ads and ads like me. Art, literature and all contemporary culture is nothing by comparison with ads. Love is better, but not much more. If I am sick, I just take ads as a pill (and it helps). When I am in low spirits, I keep saying "wriggly spearmint double juicy fruit without sugar" - and the pain is gone ... Dmitri Shostakovich is a genius of mass culture. If he were alive now, he would compose the music for trailers...

Andrey Velikanov
Language sign duality is asymmetrical, 2000, MJPEG, 3 min.
The author found the unknown folk with very interesting culture. Due to extraordinary artistic, intellectual and musical endowments they have very refined language. The author doesn't speak this language and having no possibility to communicate with the people, he gathered the exceptional collection of the local folklore. This film is the account of the work that has been done.
Russian folk songs and the texts of the modern art theorists are used.
