DP#039 – loopdeloop.org: a bi-monthly animation challenge

Leave a reply

What a funny idea: “LoopdeLoop is an animation challenge. Each month, animators from around the world create looping animations based on a given topic and upload them to www.loopdeloop.org. On the last Tuesday of the month all of the posted loops are compiled and screened to a live audience at Loop in Melbourne, Australia. During the screening a winner is declared, who enters the hall of fame and has their loop featured throughout the following month.”

The theme for April/May is ‘Rainbow‘, this is my fave submission so far:

Further loops can be found at http://www.loopdeloop.org/

DP#038 – Street illusionist Steve ‘OG MagicMan’ McGuinness

Leave a reply

I first saw this documentary about Steve McGuinness aka OG Magicman two years ago and it kinda stuck in my head. Last weekend we were at this opening of a new bikeshop where a magician pulled off some cool tricks–but with way too much fuzz about it. That reminded me about this guy from the UK, whose approach focusses on stunning illusions instead going bells and whistles about it. Way to go.

So, it’s magic Monday–25 minutes you won’t regret. Filmed by Jonathan Kerr-Smith.

DP#035 – The Artisan Press

“For me, the first sheet should be the same as the last. And the middle sheet should be same as those. When you can do that, you know you’re in tune with the machine.” Wayne Davis, The Artisan Press

Stefan Jose’s short about Wayne Davis and his 26 years relationship with that massive 1.5 tons, 110 years old printing press is one more ode of this strive for perfection and detail-loving art of handcrafting.
