Animation on a Bike

November 25, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Here’s a wonderful zoetrope animation using paper discs mounted on bicycle wheels by Katy Beveridge as part of her 3rd year dissertation project at CSM in London. Beveridge mentions being partially influenced by the technique of Tim Wheatley who has also explored the ideas of bicycle-wheel animation. See many more zoetrope videos previously on Colossal.

Interview with Federico Uribe

November 15, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Here’s a great interview with one of my favorite artists, Federico Uribe (previously) who uses repurposed objects like athletic shoes and hardware to create sculptures of animal and plant life. The video captures numerous shots of his current exhibition, The World According to Federico Uribe at the Boca Raton Museum of Art that’s still up through December 4. One of my favorite quotes from the video: “In time I learned that celebrating life was better than complaining about it.” Words to live by. The interview was produced and directed by David Marin of Pelicruise Film Group. (thnx, david!)

Stunning New Time Lapse Video from the International Space Station

November 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A few weeks ago a beautiful time lapse video shot from the International Space Station made the rounds. When I saw this new video pop up on Vimeo I assumed it was the same thing, but immediately realized it was something wholly more incredible, not to mention five times longer. This new (or newly edited?) video was shot with a special low-light 4K-camera by the crew of expeditions 28 and 29 onboard the ISS from August to October, 2011 and captures numerous shots of the Aurora Borealis. I recommend clicking HD full-screen for this one.

Keep Drawing

November 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A new rotoscopic animation by Seoul-based Studio Shelter (previously) in which every single frame is a different character in a different style, frequently switching mediums between pencils, pens, markers, and even paint. What a perfect and wonderful way to capture the frustrations and rewards of drawing through the medium itself. I watched the whole clip twice and was amazed, but it wasn’t until the third time when I started hitting pause repeatedly that I realized how many hundreds of hidden treasures flash before your eyes. I definitely recommend spending some time with it. Directed by Ha Juan.
