WE ARE THE...,
STRANGE MEDIA FOR STRANGE PEOPLE
Txt: Monica Ponzini

Stop motion, 3D, videogames, animes, 8-bit culture. With the Internet as 
distribution platform. The final product is We Are The Strange , an 
elusive and indefinite 90 minute film, where the author, M dot Strange , 
gathered everything that appeals to him visually, all his universe of 
images and styles.

What characterizes this new way of narrating through images – that the 
author himself called “ Str8nime ”, are the characters created with 
different media, short dialogues and a plot that can be hardly 
recounted. Shot with a very low budget and a basic equipment, M dot 
Strange's film was presented at Sundance Festival , where “classic” 
filmmakers did not show particular enthusiasm. It was obviously on the 
Internet that, on the contrary, the extremely original work became 
widely known, thanks to the word passed by all the “strange people” who 
admired its completely different visual approach.
