Eskmo: We Got More

December 11, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Fun new video for We Got More by Eskmo off of Ninja Tune. Kind of has a modern Terry Gilliam animation feel to it that I really dig. (via hirngerechte gestaltung)

We Have Band: You Came Out

December 8, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Stumbled onto this 2009 stop motion video for You Came Out by We Have Band, it’s lovely if not slightly bizarre.

The face paint animation film is made up of 4,816 separate stills. Each and every frame was hand-painted, shot, wiped off and redrawn, slightly differently for the next frame in order to create a seamless sequence. This time-consuming process involved the band members lying still for two consecutive days in a studio.

In order to animate the singing bit, lip movement was created by animating a painted mouth on the singer Dede. This involved breaking the lyrics into phonetics and giving each sound a specific mouth shape. To make this as realistic as possible all the mouth shapes were painted on Dedes face individually and then shot. All 4,816 frames of the music video can be found on Flickr

If you’re lucky enough to live in Italy they’ll be in Milan tomorrow night and Bologna on Friday. (via polkadot)

Stop-Motion Ad for Moleskine Mini

December 3, 2010

Christopher Jobson

The 2010 cavalcade of incredible stop motion films continues with a great new advert for the Moleskine Mini by Rogier Wieland based in the Netherlands.

For the new extra small planners/diaries series from Moleskine I made a stopmotion animation, focussing on the bright colors of the diaries and trying to add some surprises to them. The video was made using the original extra small planners. Only the 533 animated pages have been reproduced in Illustrator, printed out on Moleskine paper, cut out and glued inside the planners for each single frame to shoot.

Another great video short today by Feedmee Design, shot as an intro for the German film competition Kurzundschön (Short & Nice). Another ongoing Colossal theme in this video: my unabashed love for weightlessness in film. (via fubiz)

3d Animated Graffiti by Graffiti Technica

November 28, 2010

Christopher Jobson

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.

An important message about saving the arts by artist David Shrigley, whose photographs I’ve always been very fond of. (via cake loves evil)
