“Onward” + Nike = Good stuff

Here’s a great animation done for Nike by James Jarvis. Simple, engaging and a great story-telling example.

Jonas & François

YouTube Preview Image
The previous post of Pas reminded me that Justice also released this really cool video with motion graphics on t-shirts for the song D.A.N.C.E.. This video made by the French duo Jonas & François has been nomitated for “Video of the Year” by MTV in 2007, so you probably have seen it before. They’ve done a similar video with LP covers which is the one above, which is a teaser for the ED Banger Vol. 2.

The duo has done many music videos like Madonna’s 4 Minutes, but it seems like the ones using animations are the best ones. The one above is the music video for Kavinsky‘s Testarossa Autodrive.

As with their other videos, here’s another one that’s recognizable for its animation, rotoscoping and typography: Flair’s Better than Prince. If anybody knows the official page for Jonas & François please post the link – it’s seems like my Googling skills are a bit off today.

Puppet & Handshake

YouTube Preview Image
For some reason it feels rare now to see animation that has a comic-like hand-drawn feel to it. Made by Patrick Smith of Blend Films.

YouTube Preview Image
Another one of his shorts with some surreal segments in it. The hands are a bit too large, but still nice nevertheless. I wonder if he had the music especially made for his animations or just ripped from somewhere.

Massive Swerve

YouTube Preview Image

Short-movie by Robert Valley (2003). Not sure about the music but it sounds like a Massive Attack song.

Robert Valley is an american artist who worked on Aeon FLux (direction), Dark Fury (story-boarding), but he’s the main animator on Gorillaz music videos.

A great artist.
