Enjoy 15 minutes of artist Mikhail Sadovnikov drawing patterns onto a spinning potter’s wheel. You’re gonna want to mute this video, the music is terrible. Watch the video below.
All you filmmakers out there this is how you put a Red Epic camera and Leica lenses to good use. In my opinion, the visuals in this video don’t go with the music at all, but the visuals are so spectacular it’s still worth watching.
I just wish videos like this didn’t always veer into the territory of “look what we can shoot in slow motion” instead of actually considering the song or story. The snow scenes don’t really seem to fit at all, and actually they kinda make this seem like a lookbook for whatever jacket the guy is wearing.
I think it’s a lot better if you mute the video and listen to something like this. Watch “Dreamin” below.
This short by Royal College of Art student, Sarina Nihei, is hand-drawn animation perfection. The Japanese-born animator has created a masterpiece, and from what I understand it’s her first-year film?! That’s enough to make me want to put everything I made in school in a pile, and set fire to it (I was maybe going to do that this weekend anyways).
The uneasy universe of the story is brilliantly brought to life by sound designer Pat Hime. This is one of those things you watch and as you are watching it you already know it is your favourite.

This is fantastic. Animator Caleb Wood (previously posted here) was invited to make an animation for Prøve Gallery in Duluth, Minnesota, but what he created had a pretty genius twist. Wood drew a stream of consciousness style animation directly onto the gallery walls, in his words it was “a continuous vertical freehand digression”. The video below is the result of moving a camera down each column.
