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.
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. The series was also turned into a full-length film released a few weeks ago.
I accept full responsibility if I’ve just exposed you to the stupidest thing you’ve ever seen in your life.
