Fundraiser: Buy This Artwork and Support the Bushfire Crisis in Australia

January 9, 2020

Christopher Jobson

Earlier this week we were sent this heartbreaking new animation from Oh Yeah Wow (previously) that was created in direct response to the horrific Bushfire Crisis currently unfolding across Australia. Titled “Tomorrow’s on Fire,” the short addresses the collective hopelessness felt in the face of political inaction, and the loss of 28 lives, thousands of homes, and potentially hundreds of millions of animals, in a fire season greatly exacerbated by the effects of global warming. Oh Yeah Wow’s animation inspired us to put together a quick fundraiser. We reached out to artists across the globe and asked if anyone might…

The end result is technically incredible despite a somewhat gloomy ending, the team’s ability to create the illusion of being underwater using just a few sparse props is commendable in and of it itself. See more making of photos here. Directed by Darcy Prendergast and Seamus Spilsbury….

Rippled: A Light Painting Music Video Shot Entirely In Camera

January 7, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Rippled is a music video shot by Australian animators Oh Yeah Wow for a track off All India Radio’s The Silent Surf. The entire video was painstakingly rendered frame-by-frame in camera using long exposure light painting techniques. I think my favorite thing about this piece other than some of the brilliant sequences (and there are many) is the near constant presence of blurred people in the background who look like ghost puppeteers, moving the figures and lights bit by bit. Stunning work. (via vimeo)…
