Another great video short today by Feedmee Design, shot as an intro for the German film competition Kurzundschön (Short & Nice). Another ongoing Colossal theme in this video: my unabashed love for weightlessness in film. (via fubiz)

3d Animated Graffiti by Graffiti Technica

November 28, 2010

Christopher Jobson

OK, so maybe a little over the top, but I’m loving these animated graffiti sketches from the Australian Graffiti Technica. There’s just the perfect mix of shaky camera work, lighting, and top-notch sound design to make these little 3d experiments pretty exceptional, and hey, if all graffiti trended toward enormous hover robots we’d probably spend a lot less taxpayer money on spray paint removal.

An important message about saving the arts by artist David Shrigley, whose photographs I’ve always been very fond of. (via cake loves evil)

How to Spend 3 ½ months on 25 Seconds of Stop-motion

November 23, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Soulgrafix was hired by French cable channel Canal+ to make a brief animated opening sequence advertising the station. For nearly four months they toiled through three rounds of 3D animated storyboards, physical construction of set pieces, and finally shooting. The production value of this is just insane for a technique over 100 years old. Lots of stills via Flickr.

A Town Called Panic

November 12, 2010

Christopher Jobson

For the past few months Futureshorts has been releasing episodes of the 2000 French animated series Panique Au Village, distributed by Aardman Animations of Wallace & Gromit fame. Each episode follows Indian, Cowboy and Horse as they find themselves in assorted predicaments that generally make no sense whatsoever. We accept full responsibility if we’ve just exposed you to the stupidest thing you’ve ever seen in your life.

A music video shot entirely using a photocopier by Neverhide Films, and a nice making of Flickr set. (via changethought)
