“Starring Willem Dafoe”! This Willem guy is pretty good.
For whatever reason, the creators of this video have not enabled embedding. However, take a second to check it out. Film as a medium is as fascinating as the people and voices in this video.
Keep your eyes fixed on those eyes, it gets trippy. This video creates a new category for itself: animation improvisation.
What a brilliant way to show off your product!
The message is everything. (via Daring Fireball)
A tale told only with cinemagraphs. Lovely black & white cinematography.
At times, this short reaches incredible heights. I wish it had a little more story.
This superimposed layered video has been done before. What makes this brilliant are the choices that go with the style. What to highlight, what should be hidden and when do these happent. The dance is lovely. The “story” is simple but open to so many possibilities. Put it up in fullscreen and just sit back and enjoy.
The spoken word is brilliant. The animation is equally brilliant. It improvises, moves, thinks like it were alive. No specific style but a series of connections. This should be played in every classroom.
This short is wonderfully ambitious with its storytelling. The underlying intent: “The larger our past gets the smaller our present feels” is given a world to live in. The animation invites you in with layers of textures and ideas.
Here is the sad truth behind those crappy relationships.
Cute. I love the way kid explore stories, not just tell them. Similar to Kid History.
For those who love embroidery.
A new web series that follows a weed delivery man and various clients he caters to. Fantastic performances with writing that feels and sounds so real that I can’t imagine the dialogue to be anything but transcriptions from real conversations. Sample below.
