An amusing one-shot advertisement for Old Spice. Hilarity aside it does have some pretty smooth transitions between scenes.

Puppet & Handshake

by Douggie

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.

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.

A short teaser for Cartoon Saloon‘s upcoming feature, the same studio responsible for Oscar nominated Secret of Kells. Certainly something not to be missed for fans of animation.

What’s in the Box?

by admin

YouTube Preview Image
The guy who made this, Tim Smit, a Dutch physics student, released this short movie called “What’s in the Box?”, which is a POV, Cloverfield-inspired short. The motion tracking is really impressive and I and I like the HUD designs, but the story doesn’t really seem that impressive to me and the atmosphere of the effects and environment seem to clash (that’s what you get for shooting in your Dutch hometown). The amazing thing is this though:

It seems like some Hollywood studios called him up asking how he had done the video and were amazed at that. I’m not really sure if he got job offers. Even though this is not likely to happen to most of us, even if we made cool shit, it seems that it does and can happen if you’re able to generate some good hype around it.

Massive Swerve

by Snowcrash

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.
