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.
Behold, a new art form is born! In the space of 3 minutes, Stuart McBratney’s crowdfunding video for his new feature, Pop-Up, covers 24 years of filmmaking, pitches his new drama comedy with simple animation, and takes the piss out of your cousin’s death metal band. It even offers to make your cat famous. I’m […]

Red Bull and trail bike rider Danny MacAskill spent two years creating this amazing video. While previous videos focused on MacAskill’s crazy bike stunts in different locations, Imaginate sees MacAskill take a completely different approach to riding, pulling mad stunts, indulging his cycle-pathic tendencies. One for the bike-curious.
The first time I saw Dermis, I could only think: ‘I need to touch that’. Dermis is a good example of what researching with new materials and interactive systems is able to achieve nowadays. On this screen you can see different, unique projections depending on how every person interacts with it. This is not touching, […]
This 8 minute performance, created and presented in the Madrid Talent Festival by Girasomnis, makes you dream with your eyes open. Ensueño fuses independent disciplines such as music, dance and visuals into a single piece. Dancers dressed in white suits become living screens. They move around the stage through projected, imaginary landscapes while dancing to […]
And now for some fine, fine acting. The actor was supposed to read his line of dialogue, while the stage directions instructed he should sound disappointed. Instead, we got this gem. Ah, YouTube, you are addictive.
If you guys are into dystopian sci-fi movies checkout this short movie called ZELLE (eng.: cell) by the young German filmmaker, Nicolas Heinemann. The special thing about this one is that the director constructed the whole setting in his shared flat room in Berlin Kreuzberg until his entire home looked like some kind of a […]
By now the starry night time-lapse has been done to death. So it takes a keen eye and some sweet tech to invigorate the genre. Clinton Harn and Phil Arntz do just that, painting a dazzling picture of colour and movement Down Under. Stay until the end, as the final shot is breathtaking.
Girl and Chocolate skateboards put together what is now one of my favourite pieces of film. It’s called Pretty Sweet and it’s made so well that it will make even the most uncoordinated and lazy person want to pick up a board and start shredding. The way that it’s cut, the effects, the soundtrack, the […]
Jesús Prudencio is a graphic/web and illustrator currently living and working in Spain. His series Cars, And Films, is a combination of both his love of film and cars. These minimalistic film posters communicate an overall look and feel, which gives us a sense of insight into the films’ themes.

The brilliantly talented Conor Finnegen finally released his short Fear Of Flying online recently and it’s worth the wait. A great story about a bird who tries to avoid heading south for the winter lovingly created with a mix of puppetry and animation.
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 […]
Ole Hagen is a London-based artist originally from Norway, working in mixed media. His art seems to derive from a classic sense of horror, although the anxieties emerge in futuristic visions of glossy surfaces and uncertainty. It’s an artificial world, an ugly world, but Hagen’s work overlaps this horror with humor, often through primitive constructions […]
