Proteigon: A Geometric Stop Motion Short

December 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Animator Steven Briand made this wonderful stop motion animation over a period of two months while working as an intern at Partizan. I love the minimalist style that really focuses your attention on the smallest gestures and paper effects. Gorgeous work. (via vimeo)

This incredible water-powered jetpack lets you plow effortlessly through the water like a dolphin as Franky Zapata demonstrates. I only live a few blocks from Lake Michigan and would like to rent one of these by summer — somebody call somebody. (via kottke)

Miguel Endara Draws a Portrait of His Father Using 3.2 Million Dots

December 5, 2011

Wow. Starting with a goofy portrait of his father’s photocopied face artist Miquel Endara embarked on an ambitious stipple drawing, using 3.2 million dots from assorted Micron pens to recreate the image on paper. Watch the wonderfully shot video above condensing 210 hours of drawing to see how he did it and also check out his website where he has a zoomable high-res version of the image. I have a terrible feeling my dad is going to ask me for a portrait using 3.3 million dots. (via stellar)

Making the Invisible Visible

December 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

For a second year, street art collective Mentalgassi has partnered with Amnesty International and Wieden + Kennedy creative team Lisa Jelliffe and Kirsten Rutherford to help highlight some of the year’s most prominent human rights abuse cases playing out around the world. Via Unurth:

This year the German street art collective have created work that appears in 26 sites across Wales, Ireland, Germany and Denmark. The 6 individuals highlighted in this year’s work include Fatima Hussein Badi, who faces the death penalty in Yemen after an unfair trial, Jabbar Savalan, who is in prison in Azerbaijan for his peaceful anti-government activism (including comments he made on Facebook), and Natalia Estemirova, a Russian human rights activist whose murder has not been brought to justice.

Mentalgassi transformed large portaits of each individual into segmented strips that are applied to the slats of fences. At first the images aren’t readily visible and only come into focus suddenly from extreme angles, reinforcing the campaign’s theme, ‘making the invisible visible‘. (via unurth)

Just spotted this wonderfully crafty stop motion piece from director Kevin Parry that follows the history of the world from the big bang through, well, I don’t want to ruin it. Lovely work. (via the awesomer)

The Beauty of One Second

A wonderful collection of one second video clips from the first round of the Beauty of a Second short film competition run by Leo Burnett Milan to promote the Montblanc luxury chronograph. Every once in a while viral marketers get things right, and this is one of those times. (via vimeo)
