Cool Stuff: Muto

Blu is a street artist based in Bologna, Italy. There is very little information of the biographical sort available on this man, leading me to believe he is either a robot, a unicorn or a robot unicorn. Regardless, he is undeniably talented, as his 7-minute stop-motion graffiti short, Muto, will attest. The Tate Modern Museum […]

Wallace and Gromit: A Matter of Loaf and Death" Full-Frame vs. Widescreen Comparison

Do not buy the Wallace & Gromit: A Matter of Loaf and Death DVD or the new Wallace & Gromit Complete Collection DVD. Apparently, both DVDs present all the films in full-frame format, when both “A Close Shave” and “A Matter of Loaf and Death” were both animated and shot in widescreen. Even more puzzling, […]

Cool Stuff: Dead All Along

Dead All Along has compelling visuals to go along with some equally cool music. This music video follows a child named Yorick. He enters a magic kingdom after being enchanted by a pixie. Upon his return home, he finds time has ravaged all he had known. The video was animated by MFA student, Giles Timms […]

Cartoon Intro Cavalcade: "G.I. Joe (1985)"

I’ve mentioned my love of the G.I. Joe opening credits sequence before. The opening credits in the video clip embedded below are the ones that started off the full TV series, but the reasons why I like it are present in all the versions that have existed. I think these credits have a remarkable sense […]

DreamWorks' Plight

People were stunned earlier this year when DreamWorks’ “Kung Fu Panda” swept the Annie Awards while Pixar’s “Wall-E” didn’t win in a single category. While quality is subjective and people are entitled to believe that “Wall-E” was the superior film, I was somewhat disturbed by the number of people who refused to give DreamWorks’ any […]

Future Spotlight: Hero: 108

I have noticed over the years that a lot of people have grown fond of the animated programs that handle themselves more seriously than the average cartoon. Perhaps it’s because such is typically uncommon in western animation, but many people consider these animated programs to be the gold standard and wish that more cartoons made […]
