As the Crow Flies, Carolina Melis & Susanne Flender
Originally from Sardinia, Carolina trained in dance and choreography, developing an interest in screen-based movement and animation and illustration that led to a Masters at Central St Martins College of Art and Design.
Carolina has directed music videos for artists such as Four Tet, Metronomy and Efterklang; a series of shorts for Animal Planet, as well as commercial projects for MTV, Sony PSP, and BBC, Prada. Carolina worked on the BBC3 re-brand Threeworld, which won a Brand Identity award at Eurobest 2008 and a commercial for NSPCC, which was nominated for a BTA Craft Award.
In 2010 she created and art directed the identity, set design and title sequence for the reality show the arrangement, produced by MTV, and was commissioned by Institute of Ethnography in Sardinia to make the short film Le fiamme di Nule.
Her work, greatly informed by her background in choreography, explores ideas of delicacy, organic development, life-cycles and living relationships, yielding elegantly tragic pieces with a subtle romance.
