How to Spend 3 ½ months on 25 Seconds of Stop-motion

November 23, 2010

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.

A Town Called Panic

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. We accept full responsibility if we’ve just exposed you to the stupidest thing you’ve ever seen in your life.

Stop animation video for When I Am King by Dutch indie rocker Tim Knol, directed by Sverre Frederiksen. The two minute film took two months to shoot and uses a technique known as pyrography, where the illustrations are burned onto wood and then animated. (via the recently relaunched drawn)
