“Noise” -> Kijek / Adamski

“Noise” from Kijek / Adamski on Vimeo.

Notes from Vimeo:

“Film inspired by the theoretic work of George Berkeley and basics of synesthetic perception. It’s a game of imagination provoked by sound. Individual sounds penetrating into the apartment of the main character relieved of their visual designates evoke images distant from its origins.”

Nearly Normal -> The Wolf I Used To Be...

The Wolf I Used To Be… from Nearly Normal on Vimeo.

This papercraft stop-motion film is both mesmerizing and and inspiring in so many ways. The story, lighting, the quality of the character rendering and the overall scenery is nothing short of pure genius. Can you tell I like it? Have a look for yourself.

Micaël Reynaud -> Microscoped King of Legoland

Micaël Reynaud is a designer, illustrator and photographer based in France. His stop motion animations are pretty mind blowing and strike true with me because of the nostalgia that comes with his use of Legos and Matchbox cars. Staple toys of my youth. If you dig what he’s doing, you can follow him on Google +, Vimeo […]

SNASK -> Papercraft Stop Motion

SNASK from Mike Crozier on Vimeo.

This is a promotional stop motion video created for Stockholm, Sweden based design group SNASK by designer Mike Crozier. It’s a fun watch as the animation literally unfolds, tears and transitions from sheets of paper to colorful boxes and then to a paper model of a pop style t.v. only to reduce back down […]

Miracle Man/Cocosuma -> Midweek Music Bump

Today’s 21st ‘Midweek Music Bump’ is a track by Miracle Man called ‘Cocosuma’. This highly detailed stop motion video was shot and directed by J-A-C-K. There are plenty of swirling skulls, burning candles and some odd highly accessorized vegetables to keep your attention. That’s why it’s this week’s ‘Midweek Music Bump’.

8-Bit Trip -> Lego Animation

From the description on the YouTube page this video animation took 1500 hours of moving/shooting legobricks to produce. The final product is an intense, colorful 8-bit Karate lesson of sorts. Pretty entertaining and worth the view.

Firekites -> Autumn Story

This animated music video directed by Lucinda Schreiber and Yanni Kronenberg has a certain level of simplicity and soul to it that I really enjoy. The natural process of erasing each frame of motion leaves behind a ghostly aura that follows each character as […]
