What Happens in Bookstores at Night

January 9, 2012

Christopher Jobson

After organizing their own bookshelf earlier this year, Sean Ohlenkamp and wife Lisa re-doubled their efforts for Type Books in Toronto. After several sleepless nights of animating with a crew of over 20 people, the Joy of Books was born. Music composed especially for the short by Grayson Matthews. See many more books here.

Rippled: A Light Painting Music Video Shot Entirely In Camera

January 7, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Rippled is a music video shot by Australian animators Oh Yeah Wow for a track off All India Radio’s The Silent Surf. The entire video was painstakingly rendered frame-by-frame in camera using long exposure light painting techniques. I think my favorite thing about this piece other than some of the brilliant sequences (and there are many) is the near constant presence of blurred people in the background who look like ghost puppeteers, moving the figures and lights bit by bit. Stunning work. (via vimeo)

Christmas Card to Friends: An Origami Snow Globe

December 29, 2011

Christopher Jobson

It’s so rare that I encounter motion graphic work that I find compelling these days, I don’t think that has anything to do with the industry, it’s just my personal taste. This clip is really special though. Created by Stephen Fitzgerald and Nathan De Ceasar and set to the music of Grant Harold, Christmas Card to Friends was inspired by the accomplished origami works of Robert Lang, Stephen Weiss, Yusuke Muroya, Petr Stuchly, and Beth Johnson. It’s fun to see all that paper goodness in motion, breaking the constraints of a tiny glass snow globe.

A trippy new video for the Macabees directed by UK-based animator David Wilson. The second clip is the making of, which is also worth a watch. (via vimeo)

Swarms

December 14, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Photographer Thomas Jackson (previously) has been working on a new series of images based on the idea of swarms, shooting large hovering masses of objects in locations around New York. He says the idea is still a work in progress and that some of these photos should just be considered “sketches,” but I think they’re really fantastic already. See them a bit larger on his site.
