The recent graduates from the London-based agency, Start Judge Gill, have created a neat little animation to show off their graduate academy and to help find the next batch of the most passionate and dedicated graduates out there including Creatives, Moving Image, Account Handlers, IT Wizards, Digital Developers and Electronic Engineers. Woah. We’re impressed.
If you haven’t seen this award-winning animation by Mikey Please, close that Facebook tab, silence your cell phone, and dedicate the next nine-ish minutes to this amazing short.
This conceptual short film is based on Edgar Allan Poe’s quote: ‘The boundaries which divide life from death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?’ The video was created by Saskia Kretzschmann and is a simple story about the continuous cycle of life and […]
This is a great little short animation about a psychedelic hospital that alters perceptions of physical beauty. Is it weird that I relate to this quite a bit?
Pure aestheticalin style, brilliant in the way of animating. Yet, this short I came across a couple of weeks ago brings a message much deeper than a simple anecdote. It is not that difficult to imagine a full-length story based on this short. Stunning.
What’s that you say? Former major leaguer Dock Ellis pitched an LSD addled no hitter and narrates the tale with relish in No MAS and James Blagden’s animated psychedelic short? Yeah, you’ve got that right.
This short film by two San Jose State University students, Kimberly Knoll (USA) and 張永翰 Yunghan Chang (Taiwan), is both touching and beautifully animated.
I’ve been a fan of This Is It Collective’s work since I saw their first video, Bad Things That Could Happen. This Is It is a collective of illustrators, animators, artists and designers based in London and they produce colourful, well-designed animations and videos. This one in particular made me snigger with joy.
From outside of Wellington comes a very young bedroom producer who makes his own magical brand of sexy Italo disco while also creating his own album art and animating his own music videos. He will often sing female-style backup vocals in falsetto and shred hair metal guitar solos over his beats. The majority of New […]
Word Salad is a mixture of hand-drawn animation and mysterious, ominous music by Micah Buzan. I don’t know what else to say, except that it’s an astonishingly beautiful piece of artwork.
Animated plastic toys. Peppered with brilliant slapstick. A storyline that makes the most wondrous stupid sense. Too excited to form proper sentences. Amazing animated film from Belgium. Hilarity that just builds and builds until your head explodes.
Set to the sweet animation of Johnny Kelly, this cover version of Coldplay’s The Scientist by Willie Nelson is achingly beautiful. The short film, itself, ‘depicts the life of a farmer as he slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the errors of his ways and opting for a more […]
They should resurrect Liquid Television or make another Heavy Metal movie to showcase the animation and artwork of illustrator Matthew Wade, whose work definitely relates to what I do i.e. skeletons, monsters, and grossness.
This short animation by Kaleb Durocher and Michelle Chrzanowski expresses a sense of loneliness and isolation that I can relate to sometimes. I’ll be in my room reading Sylvia Plath and listening to Nine Inch Nails and realize no one understands me.
