Cool Stuff: Le Phare

by Eileen Cruzon October 13, 2009
This is my favorite of the shorts I’ve watched in the last month or so. Le Phare (The Lighthouse Keeper) was created by Gobelins students, David Francois, Rony Hotin, Jérémie Moreau, Baptiste Rogron, Gaëlle Thierry, Maïlys Vallade. In this short a lighthouse keeper is roused from his slumber by a rather large insect. (via @guscall […]

Cool Stuff: Burning Safari

by Eileen Cruzon October 13, 2009
Burning Safari combines two of my favorite things: robots and monkeys. The short was created in 2006 as the final project by former Gobelins students, Florent de La Taille, Jeanne Irzenski, Vincent Aupetit, Claude-William Trébutien, Maxime Maleo and Aurélien Prédal. The short’s website has some nice background and character designs. It also has a number […]

Here’s a nifty little stop-motion animation created by Sjors Vervoort as his graduation project. I do so enjoy street art.  (via @hntrgthrr on twitter)

Cool Stuff: Tarboy

by Eileen Cruzon October 11, 2009
Not too sure about the name of the of the main character, but I’m definitely digging the animation. Tarboy was created by James Lee, with music by Hania Lee. Enjoy the pretty thing. (via @compoundj on twitter)

Cool Stuff: Yellow Cake

by Eileen Cruzon October 11, 2009
Yellow Cake is a great in that it disarms the viewer with a false sense of security and then viciously rips it away by effectively mixing some rather adorable creatures with horrific acts of war. The two extremes play very well together in this beautifully put together short. According to an interview on Slow Decade, the idea […]

Cool Stuff: Ryan

by Eileen Cruzon October 11, 2009
In 2004, Chris Landreth created an animated interpretation of an interview he had with Ryan Larkin (1943-2007). The short went on to win numerous awards, including the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 2005. Larkin, who had been a rising star three decades prior is shown here living out every artist’s worst nightmare, destitute […]

Cool Stuff: The Dog and the Butcher

by Eileen Cruzon October 8, 2009
The Dog and the Butcher was created by Jonathan Holt and done as his senior thesis for the Ringling College of Art and Design in Florida. You’ll find some extra art for this short on his portfolio blog. The plot of the short could have been less predictable. It desperately needs one good gag added […]

Cool Stuff: Sing Sang Sung

by Eileen Cruzon October 5, 2009
It turns out that Air’s music is not quite my thing, but the animation Mathematic did for the song, Sing, Sang, Sung is. This video follows a sometimes bouncing ball through a Yellow Submarine-esque world. AIR MUSIC VIDEO SING SANG SUNG from MATHEMATIC SAS on Vimeo. (via @antertainer on twitter)

On their journey the scientist on board discovers a cure for the mysterious affliction and Jasper finds himself faced with the terrible prospect of allowing his fellow crew members to become feed for the […]

Cool Stuff: Muto

by Eileen Cruzon September 29, 2009
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 […]
