The Happiest Monster

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

by Douggie

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.

ALARM

A short 3D animation done by the independent Korean animation studio MESAI. Lots of really cool shots, environmental detail and – besides the humor and the familiarity with the story – I like the smart usage of sounds in this short.

Cracktros FTW!

by Douggie

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!

SoKo – I´ll kill her

by admin


Not the best lyrics in this song, but this fan made video is making up for the lyrics! Made by Joerg Narton as a final project for his university. In case you don’t ever read the comments, here’s what he said about making the video:

“i used Cinema 4d for 3d modeling and 3d Animation, Xfrog (as Cinema 4d plugin) for modeling and animating the plants and ornamental shapes and After Effects for 2d Animation and compositing.”

I’m not really sure how this sort of ink/grow/organic style is called, so if you have the official term for it, enlighten me!

Langara College – Rethink scholarship

by Douggie

YouTube Preview Image
Very inspirational, even if it’s an ad for a college and not really a message video. I love this kind of stuff that makes you wanna do things! Done by the ad agency Rethink Communication.

Prefuse 73 – The End of Biters

by Douggie


Not really sure if this is the official video for Prefuse 73‘s “The End of Biters”, but it sure looks nice! The animation seems rotoscoped. The video is directed, animated and edited by Aleix Pitarch.

Google Japan Stop Motion Promos

by admin

YouTube Preview Image
A cute stop motion promo to show how Street View of Google is made and give people the impression that privacy is huge concern for them. Made by the Japanese stop-motion studio Pangra! (Pantograph). If anybody has more info about this studio, please tell so!

YouTube Preview Image
Titled “The Evolution of Simple”, this promo shows cleverly how Google Chromo goes minimalistic and thereby gets rid of all the (visual) clutter. As with the other promo, it’s made by Pangra! (Pantograph).

Another stop motion video, now for eBay. It’s cool how you can see that they used transparent sheets in order to make stuff work. Made by Max Keily.
