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.
A lovely short by Disney Animation. The style is a mix of modern and old. The story, especially the resolution, is classic Disney. That’s where it kinda disappoints. We like magic on screen, it works but the resolution I wished came from the non-magical. Still, I loved it.
A lovely textured stop motion that reaches incredible heights at certain moments. Even though I don’t speak Japanese, I felt like I understood the meaning and much of that is due to the visual language created in the video.
Interesting character with a unique perspective. I wish it was less stylized, it feels like there was an invisible wall between the subject and the viewer.
I love split screen and this absolutely nails that aesthetic. Lovely idea, executed beautifully.
Full of lovely little ideas.
