Welcome to Kadvre Exquis‘s film noir stylized animated short. I really loved the lighting of the city scape and the varying points of view that really allow the viewer to get into the film. Kadvre Exquis has other videos similar to this one on Vimeo. Check it out!
This stop-motion animation of Tetris is just one part of French-Swiss artist Guillaume Reymond‘s project Game Over. Guillaume has also directed Space Invaders, and Pong! I haven’t heard anyone mention Pong in a long time.
Macabre artist Jonathan Monaghan creates digital sculptures, prints, and animations that definitely puts us in a sense of discomfort. His clean, almost sterile use of style in detail, color, and light is both beautiful and extremely uncomfortable.
If you attended one of the previous annual Animation Shows, you may have seen Run Wrake’s short animation “Rabbit” (and me!) From the show, Run Wrake’s film was one of my favorites. He used elements from the classic Dick and Jane books to weave an equally classic tale of greed and it’s horrible consequences. I love how, just like in the Dick and Jane books, everything in every scene is accurately labeled.
It is very bad that I am writing about PES today, going into his website, watching his very entertaining and creative videos.. while I am at work here at B/D. It is all very distracting. I love how he finds use for any random object into something recognizable – yet not immediately obvious. I would have never thought of clown cake decorations to stand in for explosions. I could watch these all day.
A short animation from the mind of David OReilly. We observe the destructive, hopeful, yet abusive marriage between a cat and a mouse. Incredibly witty, minimalistic, and very conceptual. This is a personal favorite of mine.
