Coffee Time Stop-Motion Animation

May 8, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This is designer Ching-Wen Wu’s first foray into stop-motion animation. She was inspired by the SNASK stop-motion short by Mike Crozier, and indeed many of the shots, sequences, and effects are almost identical shot for shot. However Wu’s seems more refined and perfect, it’s hard to believe this is her first attempt at something like this. Some making-of shots here.

If you liked last week’s Cyclotrope, you’ll dig this collaboration between DJ Maclom Goldie and the Institute of Contemporary Arts London. On the Vimeo page they discuss how it “kind of didn’t work” however I politely disagree, this thing is flippin’ sweet. (via lookva)

Preview for Noise

March 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This is a teaser trailer for an upcoming stop motion short film called Noise by Polish filmmaking duo Katarzyna Kijek and Przemysław Adamski. Via their blog:

Film inspired by the theoretic work of George Berkeley and basics of synesthetic perception.
It’s a game of imagination provoked by sound. Individual sounds penetrating into the apartment of the main character relieved of their visual designates evoke images distant from its origins.

See more screens from the film here. (via lookva)

A graduate project in animation by Lee Sunghwan of Studio Shelter. Though I had trouble discerning a plot exactly, I found myself giggling a few times, this is pretty well done.
