WWF: Earth Hour 2011

February 16, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A great new stop motion animation to promote Earth Hour using hundreds of people holding colored panels. The part with the bicycle is particularly special.

From its inception as a single-city initiative — Sydney, Australia – in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into a global symbol of hope and movement for change. Earth Hour 2010 created history as the world’s largest ever voluntary action with people, businesses and governments in 128 countries across every continent coming together to celebrate an unambiguous commitment to the one thing that unites us all — the planet.

February 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The floating animation pen is a collaboration between Japanese designers Satoshi Endo and Taku Sato who spent six months researching and developing the perfect combination of elements that would simulate a 6-frame slit animation within the tiny confines of a liquid filled pen. Mesmerizing. (via designboom)

Katie Armstrong: once more, once more

January 19, 2011

Christopher Jobson

NYC artist and animator Katie Armstrong just made and premiered this animated cover of Britney Spears at the Leipzig International Art Residency Program in Germany. Quick verification with the wife suggests this might be “the most amazing thing ever”. I have to say it definitely gave me the chills.

Joy of Destruction

Christopher Jobson

Xaver Xylophon is a 24 year-old visual communications graduate from KHB Berlin Weißensee. He likes melancholy robots, the smell of new tennis balls, and creating some pretty fantastic stop-motion shorts. I also really enjoyed the organic Zyklus I.
