“Goodbye Rabbit, Hop Hop” by Caleb Wood


Love this surreal short animation by Caleb Wood. Some of the sound here oddly sorta reminds me of Yojimbo (one of my favourite film scores).  Watch below.

In 1983, writer John Hull began making audio recordings of his daily experiences after becoming completely blind.

The New York Times produced this gorgeous visual piece to accompany a selection of Hull’s thoughts from three years of audio cassette recordings.

“Eager” Animation by Allison Schulnik


This is cinematic perfection, it’s truly one of the finest pieces of animation I’ve seen. I’ve praised Allison Schulnik’s animations in the past (here and here) but I think this film is her strongest work to date. It is absolutely gorgeous, and also terrifying, and I guess that’s sort of how I feel about all of her work.

Watch the Allison Schulnik’s animation “Eager” below!

The Simpsons Pay Tribute to Legendary Japanese Animator Hayao Miyazaki

thesimpsons-miyazaki-01 thesimpsons-miyazaki-02 thesimpsons-miyazaki-03

I haven’t watched The Simpsons in years but I might have to this Sunday. The teaser for the next episode reveals it to be a tribute to Japanese director, animator, Hayao Miyazaki. It will be an entire episode brimming with references to Studio Ghibli films.

*Edit – it was not an entire episode, it was just this sequence unfortunately.

The teaser has glimpses of My Neighbor TotoroHowl’s Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Spirited Away, well, you get the idea.

I was thinking though, how cool would it have been to have Studio Ghibli actually produce the episode of The Simpsons? In their style! I guess, this is the next best thing.

Watch the video below!
