Friday Morning Movie: Monsterbox

This movie is adorable. The style is fantastic, and the storyline – although bizarre – somehow works. The interesting thing is that this seven-minute movie contains no dialogue. But you don’t really notice. Enjoy.

Friday Morning Movie: Les Coulisses de Rhapsodie

Today’s film is an animated short about a the dinner rituals of a French family. The animation is cute and sort of reminds me of The Triplets of Belleville. Maybe because it’s French. Who knows.

This is a graduation project by Charlotte Cambon, Soizic Mouton, Stéphanie Mercier and Marion Roussel.

Friday (Post) Morning Video

Puppets! The stars of today’s short film. No animation or stop motion here, folks. No. Just puppets. And good ones performing timeless slapstick.

May I present “The Grumpy King” directed by Johnny & Will for the Cartoon Network.

Friday Morning Movie: Sight

It’s the Friday before a long weekend, and that means we’re shutting down and heading for a sunny patio for a boozy lunch in less than an hour. Did I ever mention that I love my job?

While you’re cooped up indoors, why check out todays short film; Sight? It was made by two students – Eran May-raz and Daniel Lazo – as their graduation project from Bezaleal Academy of Arts.  The concept is clever, giving us an ominous peek into what the future might be like.

Happy Long Weekend Pride!!

Friday Morning Movie: Wild Life

Today I have selected a film that was nominated ‘Best Animated Short’ at the 2012 Academy Awards. Presented by the National Film Board of Canada, this film takes place in 1909 and tells the story of a very proper Englishman who travels to Alberta to become a ranchman. Unfortunately his affinity for badminton, bird-watching and booze gets in the way.

The thing that appealed most to me about this film was the animation style. It’s like a mix of Van Gogh and watercolour finger-painting.

Friday Morning Movie: Happy Food

This is a little short to be a movie, but whatever.

Created by Yum Yum, London, today’s “movie” is just over a minute long. Yum Yum is same bunch that did the Parallel Parking video that I posted a while back. Yum Yum is a team made up of Beth and Johnny. According to their website, they “make things for you. Animations to share with your friends and toys to brighten up your home or desk.” The toys are actually really fun. Go check out their website.

Everyone Looks Good in Prada

Back after a long-weekend, I stumble across this new short film for Prada. Directed by Roman Polanski, this extended commercial stars Helena Bonham Carter and Ben Kingsley. It premiered at Cannes, right before Polanski screened his film, “Tess”.

I love the set in this film, and the actors are divine. But neither are quite as fantastic as the purple fur coat. It’s true what they say, “Prada suits everyone”.

Friday Morning Movie: The Eagleman Stag

Watching this award-winning short film, I knew within the first few seconds that this was our post for the day. The stop-motion video is dark, sad, yet humourous. But the most amazing part is that it was created with all white scalpel-cut figures.

Directed by Michael Please, the short film tackles the subject of time, and how it speeds up as you age. This is eight minutes that you don’t want to miss. Hope your coffee is full.

Friday Morning Movie: Mr. Foley

Another Friday morning is upon us. And with that, I present another Friday Morning Movie for your viewing pleasure.

Today’s flick is dark and twisted, just how I like them. It’s won a fistful of awards and was directed by Mike Ahern and Enda Loughman (aka D.A.D.D.Y.) from Dublin. Enjoy!

Via.

Congratulations. You made it to Friday. Not that you really had a choice.

Here’s a short film about rage, by Guy Collins.
