Wyld File

islands01

Wyld File is a group of Flash animators creating work that’s pretty much in the same vein as Paper Rad‘s stuff. In fact they may very well be the same people, judging from the amount of times Paper Rad is referenced on Wyld File’s website. I think my favorite part of their gimmick is their parody (I think?) of Dogme 95, purporting that their brand of Flash animation is revolutionary and pushes Flash to its limits.

As Paper Rad puts it ,”A lot of cool shit was done in Flash, but there was never anything really that looked so funky that pushed Flash behond it limits, into an arena where the very tools of Flash have eaten themselves and caused a creative process to evolve against all the things Flash isn’t supposed to do.”

Paper Rap insists the loosely based value system “Dogman 99″ consisting of the rules “no Wacom tablet, no scanning, pure RGB colors only, only fake tweening, as many alpha tricks as possible”…

Jacob Ciocci of Paper Rad

I saw Jacob (one part of the trio? I think who makes up Paper Rad, and half of hip-hop-mashing/electro/idkwhat Extreme Animals) Tuesday night at Wildness and yesterday night at the Family bookstore, two stops on his “2 Blessed 2 B Stressed” tour.

I made a list of the things he “live blogged” about: how he was a fan of the Christian band Paramour’s positive messages, the Eddie Murphy and MJ duet “What’s Up With You“. I also grabbed one of the attitude bracelets that he’s so into right now. David of Extreme Animals also showed a synchronized guitar riff + head banging video piece during the Family show which was painful yet ecstatic everlasting repetition.

The video is amazing. It may seem like these guys don’t really care, but I think they really really do. Tricky.
