Superb minimalist and music driven animation by kounterpart (yeah, i know the k should be reversed but it’s not a character in my webfont ffs) for the upcoming VA “Black Box One” on krux Records. Rendered in 3D, then filmed with a DSLR to add that certain look and feel to the rough Polygons. A glitchy execution of less is more with a lot of attention to detail.
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.”
Further loops can be found at http://www.loopdeloop.org/
Dysco is a pretty demo-ish 3D animation/video by motion and interaction designer Simon Russell. Besides the efforts that went into this well-synced, detailed, futuristic project he also documented a making of from sketches to the final version. Simon, did you hear about the demoscene yet? How about you make this thing in realtime? Just thinking. You can find further stills and also some 3D resources in his blog.
The Making of Dysco
This one isn’t new, it’s actually from 1996. It’s Don Hertzfeldt‘s first animated stick figure short, produced during his initial year at UC Santa Barbara. The thing is, I wanted to post his most known and award winning “Rejected“, from 2000. (Btw, I have to remind myself all the time, that 2000 is 14 years in the past already – strange). And if it wasn’t for doing a bit of research, I wouldn’t have stumbled over “Ah, L’Amour“.
Jesse Benjamin’s 90s fantasy game flavoured animation “Ballad of a WiFi Hero” based upon McSweeney’s Internet Tendency features the everyday-heroism of younger people fixing the elders internet problems. Co-starring the voice of H. Jon Benjamin and music by Paul Sprangers. Sounds like a familar story… Exclusively tailored for Vulture.com
