The 2010 cavalcade of incredible stop motion films continues with a great new advert for the Moleskine Mini by Rogier Wieland based in the Netherlands.
For the new extra small planners/diaries series from Moleskine I made a stopmotion animation, focussing on the bright colors of the diaries and trying to add some surprises to them. The video was made using the original extra small planners. Only the 533 animated pages have been reproduced in Illustrator, printed out on Moleskine paper, cut out and glued inside the planners for each single frame to shoot.
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)
Oh this is really special. A long-form, somewhat quirky advertisement for SHIRO, a Japanese brand of shōchū. You’ve probably noticed I kind of have a thing for Rube Goldberg-related related stuff and this is no exception despite its digital interventions. (via booooooom)
A killer timelapse video by Chicago photographer Chris Pritchard. “Cycles of Light is a reel of timelapse material shot in 2010 by Chris Pritchard, highlighting the neverending cycles of movement and light through the city and sky.” Some exquisite moments of Chicago caught on film. (via coudal)
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.

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.
