This is a great animated short by Ben Barrett-Forrest explaining the history of typography. It uses 291 paper letters, 2,454 photographs and took 140 hours to make.
It is your duty to forward this video to anyone you know using Comic Sans.
Everybody wants to rule the world. At least according to Tears for Fears.
Today’s animated short introduces us to a little alien named Frankie. He’s on a mission to conquer the galaxy, one planet at a time. This 3D animation is pretty impressive. The story is funny, albeit a little crass in the end (no pun intended).
The film was written and directed by San Charoenchai and is already lining up the awards, including,
Enjoy – and have a great Canada Day long weekend!
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.
I chose today’s film (by Tobias Gundorff Boesen) because I liked the mix of stop motion with live action. It’s won a ton of awards and appeared at countless film festivals.
It was shot in the forests surrounding Viborg, Denmark. There’s no talking in the movie – in fact, it’s almost like a music video, set to the song “Slow Show” by The National. But it’s endearing. And dark. And kind of sad.
This might be one of the best Friday Morning Movies that we’ve ever had! And I have to admit, I was a little distraught that I had not seen it before yesterday, as it’s been out for almost a year.
The film, called FriendSheep, is made entirely by students of the Valencia-based school of animation, PrimerFrame. Released in March 2011, this animated short has won numerous awards. It’s visually stunning, the story line is fantastic and it’s funny as hell. I highly recommend you carve out seven minutes of your day to watch this.
It’s Friday, and that means time for the weekly animated short film. This one is very short, coming in at only two minutes and eleven seconds. But it’s really funny and a good way to kick off a snowy slash freezing rain Friday.
This animated short is the senior thesis of Justin Farris, created at Ringling College of Art & Design.
This week went by at the speed of a thousand gazelles. I still can’t believe it’s already Friday.
Thankfully I have a fantastic short movie pre-selected and ready for your viewing pleasure. Today’s animated short is called Stopover and was created by Neil Stubbings. Neil is one of two founds of LeMob, a multi award-winning motion design studio with offices in L.A. and Zürich. They even went so far as to create a micro-site (with micro-content) for the movie.
The movie is three minutes long and funny as hell. Top up your coffee and enjoy.
