Another flawless animation by London-based 2d and 3d animator Simon Landrein. This one for Silkie’s “Love Affair”. His style is so recognizable now, and he just knows how to pare down everything to just what’s necessary to tell a story. Fantastic work. Watch the animation below.
Watch the music video below, I quite like the portion of the video where the images glitch and break apart.
I’ve been waiting for this since the day my friends, Vancouver-based filmmakers, Salazar told me about their project. Wizard Mode, follows champion pinballer, Robert Gagno, as he battles the international competitive pinball world and the day-to-day challenges of living with autism. There is so much in this little portrait, I love it.
Keep in mind this is the short film version of what Salazar hopes will become a feature-length documentary (crowdfunding campaign to start in September). Watch “Wizard Mode” below!
Another great job by director/producer Bas Berkhout. The second instalment of the online documentary series, InFrame, features award-winning graphic artist, Pâté (a.k.a. Paul Pateman). Watch Pateman discuss what motivated him to quit his job as a creative director to pursue his passion as an independent illustrator, as well as his thoughts on his own work, and the allure of simplicity when surrounded by chaos. More images of Pateman’s work and full video below.
