Anime & Comics – Spirited Away is hands down one of my favorite works by Miyazaki. It’s one of those that just takes me to a whole new dimension – more than usual. And while I don’t play Minecraft (I know, travesty!), I think that the creations of its players are worthy of praise. Take this rendition in Minecraft. […]
Anime & Comics – Having read a lot of anime reviews and general opinions on anime, I’ve come to notice that a lot of people tend to describe animation or production quality as “good” or “bad” without going into any specifics. In order to help make reviews and opinions on animation quality less confusing, here are just some examples […]
Features – Paperman is an astounding innovation in animation, melding the charms of hand-drawn animation with computer animation, creating the kind of mesmerizing love story Walt Disney would have loved.
Features – Are Doctor Who‘s TARDIS and Back to the Future‘s DeLorean the two most iconic time machines ever? This clever mashup — starring the Doctor and his friends as Marty McFly’s peeps — goes a long way toward cementing both.
Games – What would happen if you mashed up the original Deus Ex with high-quality Ghost In the Shell-style animation? This.
General – Coolness! Visual effects house Method Studios created the “main-on-end” title sequence that plays immediately after The Avengers ends (but right before the much-discussed prologue). And they’ve posted their work online, in its entirety, so you can truly appreciate their painstaking attention to detail. (Note: this post contains no spoilers.)
General – When it comes to keeping fans happy, LEGO is on a roll. It seems like every week, LEGO announces some new product or feature that pays service to its base of hardcore fans. Their latest goodie: a free iPhone app that makes it super simple to film your own stop-motion LEGO movies.
General – You may get a Terminator vibe from Ruin, a new short film from indie animation studio Oddball Animation. But don’t worry — this is anything but a rip-off. It’s one of the coolest animated films I’ve ever seen.
General – Through the power of computer generated imagery, one fan has created the ultimate smackdown between superhero titans: Superman and Hulk.
General – Step back, contenders. I think we have found the world’s biggest Arnold Schwarzenegger fans. This trilogy of short animated films, inspired by the Governator himself, were hand-drawn with highlighters used for color.
General – Remember those moving photographs that Darice wrote about sometime ago? They were awesome, especially since in some images, you don’t immediate see what the moving aspect is. I chanced upon some moving photographs today, but they are of a different kind. The kind that will want you to head on over to your favorite bar, […]
General – As the whole world knows, Pixar is the holy grail of animated film. They can do no wrong. Every film they’ve made has been a #1 hit, and an instant classic. But because they have such a reputation for excellence, we never hear about their failures. But as every genius will tell you, brilliance is […]
General – In 1926 Dr. Fritz Kahn created a poster of the human bodily functions, Man as Industrial Palace, based on mechanics. Dr. Kahn was famous for using mechanics metaphors to explain the workings of the human body. Dr. Fritz Kahn (1888-1968) was a gynecologist in Berlin and a world-famous popular science writer who illustrated the form […]
General – I have not been bugging you with any animation at all this week. No stop-motion, no visual arts. Only two Saul Bass style videos. Time to change that.
General – Probably when I told you yesterday that I’m a big fan of video art and Bill Viola, you lifted your shoulder and thought ‘So what’. But little did you know what was coming. I really hope you like awesome animation, especially stop-motion video as much as I do because I will post you every cool […]
General – For anyone that would love to have a real keyboard on their iPhone 3G S, take a look at this video which could offer a solution.
Games – Here’s a fantastic video with some cool editing going on: Street Fighter 2 meets table tennis / ping pong. It would be great if the video was longer, with some more fancy moves, but this will do for now.
Games – There’s no stopping some people. Once they’ve gotten hold of a Donkey Kong 2600 cartridge clock they’re onto creating animated Kong sequences in parking lots. The giant gorilla and other characters are made out of Post-It Notes (how long did that take to put together?)
General – Anyone with the patience to manipulate a whole box full of Rubik’s Cubes and generate stop-motion animation of this caliber simultaneously gets some serious respect from me. Space Invader from Rubikcubism has created this awesome animation. Mind-blowing is all I have left to say… TOP 10by extermitent (Via)
