“When I was done dying” – beautiful, swooping animation to sound

dandeacon-donedying2

Saw this on the amazing BOOOOOOM, where founder Jeff Hamada writes:

“Animators Jake Fried, Chad Vangaalen, Dimitri Stankowicz, Colin White, Taras Hrabowsky, Anthony Schepperd, Masanobu Hiraoka, KOKOFreakbean and Caleb Woodwere recently tapped to create a special episode of Adult Swim’s Off The Air. The piece seamlessly weaves its way through different interpretations of the afterlife, set to the tune of Dan Deacon’s “When I Was Done Dying”.

The still (above) comes from Masanobu Hiraoka’s section of the film because he’s my favourite and his work is next level (proof).”

From the Vimeo page:

“Tapping nine unique and talented animators (whose work had all appeared previously on the show) to create a beautiful and seamless journey through the afterlife to the great song “When I Was Done Dying” by Dan Deacon.

“Short interviews with Dan and the animators can be found here: offtheairas.tumblr.com/DDWIWDD

Exploding actresses (and Disney princesses)

Saw this on Kottke, it’s really very good. Italian director Simone Rovellini has put a host of videos, gifs and more together for his Exploding Actresses tumblr.

Actresses:

HAHAHAHA!

And princesses:

Adventure Time – Her Parents

Thanks for the heads up, Jadell.

New York: Night and Day (at the same time!)

It’s not perfect, granted, but Night and Day is a wonderfully original idea with some great shots. It’s a project by Philip Stockton, who says: “New York: Night and Day is a combination of non-traditional video time-lapse and animation. I filmed day and night scenes from around New York City and combined them back into single sequences using rotoscoping techniques. The piece explores the relationships between night and day, by compositing together scenes shot in the same location over a time period ranging from 4 – 8 hours. I hope you enjoy it.”

Olympic Vermin

Olympic Vermin is such a great title for this video, featuring the scruffy creatures of London having their own mini-Olympic torch lighting. I have to say, I’d almost rather watch this then the real Olympics. Those rats are pretty cute (but you know, not in real life). Nice work from Amael Isnard and Leo Bridle.(via)
