Keep Drawing

November 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A new rotoscopic animation by Seoul-based Studio Shelter (previously) in which every single frame is a different character in a different style, frequently switching mediums between pencils, pens, markers, and even paint. What a perfect and wonderful way to capture the frustrations and rewards of drawing through the medium itself. I watched the whole clip twice and was amazed, but it wasn’t until the third time when I started hitting pause repeatedly that I realized how many hundreds of hidden treasures flash before your eyes. I definitely recommend spending some time with it. Directed by Ha Juan.

What Goes Up: A Figurative Stop Motion

November 8, 2011

I spotted this beautifully animated stop motion short by an artist named Lacey. In the words of my three year old son: “Oh dad, it’s a stick man! Oh oh oh no it’s a ROBOT! Ohhhhh NOW IT’S A LADY!!!” So that’s pretty much what you’re in for.

I Look & Move

How fun is this new stop motion short by Russian animator Constantine Konovalov. Via Vimeo he says the concept was born from all the people “who were able to turn this world, to change something, build something, create something and do something that leaves a mark on our planet.” So, in essence, maybe this is how Steve Jobs saw the world, iPhone included.

We Cut Corners: Pirate’s Life

October 19, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A new video from Katarzyna Kijek and Przemysław Adamski (previously) for We Cut Corners. The entire video was hand drawn, frame by frame using markers on paper. The not so exciting making of video is kind of hilarious.

</p.

If you picked up a toy in the 1980s, be it a car, Transformers, LEGO, or a Nintendo game, chance is, it might be in this video. I think my mind just exploded with nostalgia. Music by Hunting Charlie’s Band(e), video directed by Micaël Reynaud. And look, animated GIFs for all you Tumblrs. (via vimeo)
