“Seven Hours With a Backseat Driver” – Gotye

Gotye Seven Hours With a Backseat Driver animation
This is a beauty. Ivan Dixon and Greg Sharp (Rubber House) have created one of my favourite animations of the year here. Something about it reminds me of Kid Koala’s “Fender Bender” and also this. Watch below!

  • still waiting for Rubberhouse to put out the full “Old Feed” film: http://www.booooooom.com/2011/01/04/rubber-house/

  • I’d love to see this style of animations put into use more often. Something about using such nostalgic inducing animations with more adult undertones really just works.

  • Endless Space

    yes! was it a metaphor for..?

    • from the rubber house website: “Our third animated music video for Gotye is a coming of age about a sexually naive elephant and her co-dependant crow.” Hopefully this doesn’t stifle people’s reactions, but I think the description is short precisely to avoid that.

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
