Mengyu Chen, an illustrator/ art director based in the US has created this amazing suite of ‘pop-up animated gifs’ (click on each one if there dont animate automatically in your browser) to promote her satirical comic book project – The Encephalic Cinema.
Some of you may have seen this last year, some of you may not but as yesterday some of us were talking about this great ad by Dulcidio Caldeira and ParanoidBR for MTV Brazil’s 21st birthday, I thought I’d share it here…
Growing up as an avid player of the Dingbats board game, I think this animated sequence promoting Ji Lees (the newly appointed Creative Director ) new book Word as Image is genius!
Terry Gilliam, the legend behind the fantastic animation sequences from Monty Python, talks about how he creates his famous cut-out animations.
Another brilliant example stop motion video – This time by up and coming talent Chris Butcher (part of the BA (Hons) Animation 2009 alimni of the University of Bedfordshire).
For this brilliantly original animation Chris has just won an Ideas Tap & Barbican award. His prize here is that it will be one of six short films shown before all the feature films appearing at the Watch Me Move festival from 15 June 2011 – 11 September 2011 at The Barbican, some well deserved exposure for local talent.
I’m a sucker for a good infographic and this is just that. Beautiful animation by digital agency Dare for their graduate scheme – I’m sold!
