Ghost Burger. There’s two words you didn’t think would be used in the same sentence. Ghost Burger is a 20 minute claymation horror film by writer/director Lee Hardcastle. But this is not Wallace and Gromit, this is a gore tour de force. A plasticine splatter scene. A nightmare in stop motion. Being clay, there’s something […]
Some animations really hit you from left field, Ballpit is one of those. This experimental film was made by Kyle Mowat as his thesis while studying animation at Sheridan Collage. It’s unlike any other animation short I’ve seen and is being shown at various animation festivals, picking up awards as it goes along.
You need to watch this video in full, and not skip a second. The creative brain behind the project, Anthony Cerniello, has achieved his ambitious goal of giving the viewer the perception that ‘something is happening but you can’t see it but you can feel it, like aging itself’. It’s a fantastic achievement, yet unsettling […]
I am big fan Julia Pott’s illustration and animations. Her characters are awkward, cute and sometimes very personal. Her latest animation, Belly, tells very heartfelt story about how it is to be the youngest child.
‘Loneliness has become the most common ailment of the modern world’. This hauntingly accurate statement gives us a new perspective on how social media really affects our lives. In a society where the illusion of individuality is prized, and a person’s status is measured by career success and monetary gain, it’s not surprising that social […]
Here is my latest Planet animation from my ongoing Illustrated Aliens project. I’m now up to Planet Seven, where we find two of its inhabitant having a chat that gets a bit too much for one of them. If you’ve missed any of the other six planets, catch up with them on their dedicated Vimeo […]
This is what happens when you take either too many drugs, or possibly not enough. Piro’s collection of ‘out there’ wacky mini animated vignettes is clearly the markings of a creative madman. You can’t help but laugh at the absurdity and rawness of each video. If AquaTeen and Monty Python had a kid, you might […]
Wow. After Brooklyn-based artist Robert Hodgin stunned us with his beautiful work on the Planetary app, we’re wowed again by his wicked computer animation and rendering skills for ths Boil Up installation at the Auckland War Memorial Museum in New Zealand. The installation engulfs visitors in a stimulated experience of New Zealand’s waters as schools […]
I really like this strange but captivating fantasy animation, Alphabets Heaven – Birthday, by Polish animator Renata Gąsiorowska. Her whimsical sketches transform this animation into a delightful video, all to the quirky tunes of Alphabet Heaven.
Illustrator and animator Anitos has made a stop-motion animation that will make you chuckle. Using the classic song by Ray Cathode, aka George Martin, called Time Beat, it tells a story about a monster being born and trying to figure out its surroundings.
In this music video, the artist combined traditional watercolor techniques with digital effects. Every texture, illustration or letter was painted and scanned several times to achieve this beautiful effect. It took weeks to produce because of the high level of details and the painting effect the artist wanted to achieve. It’s a brilliant combination of […]
Amanda King’s music is a mesmerizing form of indie folk. The music video for her song Yellow Velvet Mountain, directed by Nicola Smanio, is a mix of live action, plastic lenses, model landscapes and hand-drawn creatures, all spiced up with a bit of dreaminess and mysticism.
I’ve always had a small, nagging fear in the back of my mind that a monster meteorite might splinter the earth into a million pieces. But when I step back and think it through, there actually have been a whole lot of meteorite strikes. And the earth is still just fine. Thanks to the smarts […]
‘I knew I wanted to work with Johnerick as soon as I met him’, says New York-based singer-songwriter David Bronson about animator Johnerick Lawson and his contribution to the new music video for Bronson’s song Outside. Johnerick’s work is a creative mixture of animation techniques that compliments the song’s themes of inner reflection. ‘Who can […]
