Health

December 15, 2010

Christopher Jobson

This great stop-motion animation was written, directed, animated and scored by Hayley Morris for the Advertising Council’s 57th Annual Service Award Dinner to introduce a series of health commercials that were produced this year. Really fun stuff, I especially enjoy the constant fluid/flowing motion of the clay even as the figures are still. Also check out her short film Undone that won Best Animated Short at Slamdance 2009. Time to go for a run.

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)
