Simple little animation by Montreal-based illustrator Martine Frossard. Watch “Thirty Masks” below.
An enjoyable little animation, directed by Titouan Bordeau, about a man and some ducks in outer space (of course). Bordeau made the film in his second year at l’école de la Poudrière. Watch “Planets after Planets” below!
Stop-Motion Animator Dillon Markey Transforms the Nintendo Power Glove into Something Actually Useful
Dillon Markey, an animator for Robot Chicken and PES (he co-animated that incredible short “Fresh Guacamole”), took an old Nintendo Power Glove and turned it into the ultimate tool for making stop-motion animations! I thought this was going to be a joke, but it is entirely real and practical (okay, minus the sound effect). How long until this ends up on Kickstarter?
Watch the video below.
Recently came across this insane video, from a couple years back, of Stanford student Ravi Fernando solving three Rubik’s cubes while juggling them. This is beyond comprehension.
Watch the video below, as well as another video I found of Ravi juggling and solving one Rubik’s cube, shot from the front, so you can get a better idea what’s going on.
When I interviewed director Hiro Murai back in November, he reminded me about director Daniel Wolfe’s videos for singer Plan B. There’s several of them, and they all seem to exist in the same universe. A similar thing is happening here with Hiro Murai and Childish Gambino, releasing this video for “Sober”, having already collaborated on “Telegraph Ave”, “Sweatpants”, and “3005”. I love seeing an artist and a director start to develop a language of their own.
Watch “Sober” below.
Legendary cinematographer Christopher Doyle, the one who contributed to every Wong Kar-wai film from Days of Being Wild all the way to 2046, is turning to Kickstarter for his latest film. The film is called Hong Kong Trilogy: Preschooled Preoccupied Preposterous, and tells a story of Hong Kong from the viewpoint of three different generations.
Children are interviewed in the already completed first segment of the film, “Preschooled”. They are asked about their daily lives, and their responses guide the film. Doyle is looking to get funding to complete the second and third segments of the film which will feature young people in the twenties and thirties, and the older generation (over 50 years old).

The Creator Class has just released the first video in their five-part documentary series, A New Breed. This first one features British Columbia-based surf filmmaker Ben Gulliver, and surf photographer Jeremy Koreski, and was directed, edited, and filmed by my friend Alex Craig. Watch “Get Miles Away” below.
