The Perfect Human #4

YouTube Preview Image
Directed by Jørgen Leth for the interesting documentary The Five Obstructions where Lars von Trier gives him five challenges for short movies. Apparently von Trier hates movies and that’s why he gave Leth a challenge to make a cartoon, which resulted in this really stylish short, rotoscoped animation. It is made with the help of rotoscoping expert Bob Sabiston, which you might also know from Linklater’s moves Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly.

The Happiest Monster

YouTube Preview Image
I really dig the hand-drawn style and how it actually looks so rough and unfinished (even if it might not be intentional). The story is pretty cool as well. It’s the first year project of Persona-Sama (check out his other video we posted as well).

Michaël Dudok De Wit

YouTube Preview Image
“Father and Daughter” has won the Academy Award for Animated Short Film in 2000. I saw this a few years ago and thought it was French because of the French feel to it, but weirdly enough it’s Dutch! Made by Michaël Dudok De Wit.

“The Aroma of Tea” (2006) is a more abstract piece which interest my not only of that, but also because of the fact that it has been drawn entirely with tea. For those who don’t understand the video, the YouTube user cosmolossus explains it as following:

it’s a video representing a molecule of the scent of tea leaving the tea, traveling into the air, passing noses, being inhaled and exhaled, passing by other smells (such as a cluster of molecules next to food, perhaps a loaf of bread) and finally reaching one last nose.

interesting and simplistic approach, and enjoyable music, but nothing i’d call a transcendent marvel…

And then the title suddenly makes sense!

And I might put the other 2 videos (which are more humorous) he also directed: “The monk and the fish” (1994).

And “Tom Sweep” from 1992, which only uses one camera angle.

Cracktros FTW!

YouTube Preview Image
Now we for something different: cracktros! These are intros made by release groups, dating back to C64 games (maybe earlier?). It’s mostly programmed (correct me if I’m wrong) graphics and these coupled with chip tune music or old school MOD-type music these bring back the good old times! They sure are charming! The video above is made by Dream Design/SAC, not really sure for what game though.

This is the Razor 1911 Cracktro #11 by Hetero/SAC made in 1997 for the “release” of Quake 2. Apparently Superior Art Creations (SAC) have their own site where you can check more of their cracktros ans Flickr pages where you can check their ASCII-art. Just check out their page for a full list – good stuff!

Angus & Julia Stone – Just a Boy

The official video for “Just a Boy” by Angus & Julia Stone, made by Playdough.

And that’s the “Making Of”, which is more of a “behind the scenes” video. This does shows that it’s pretty interesting how the animation can make the video more magical and alive.

自主制作アニメーション

YouTube Preview Image

What starts out as a seemingly straightforward video soon dissolves into organized chaos, a very beautifully thought out piece of animation, which just goes to show that with the right ideas anything can be captivating.
