This is why the Internet exists. Recently a video surfaced of a Japanese politician crying hysterically which really wasn’t that funny on its own. However, this gentleman in the bow-tie took it upon himself to memorize the entire thing, and turn it into a guitar solo. This is next level comedy. Watch the video below!
According to his Vimeo bio, Australian artist Andy Thomas “specialises in particle simulation based motion graphics, inspired by nature and technology”. A simpler way of saying it might be that he makes shapes that react to sounds.
In the video below Thomas makes visuals for two bird sounds from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision’s archives. It kinda reminds me of that scene in Ratatouille where Remy imagines the colours of taste.
Watch “Nightingale and Canary” below!
Quincy Symonds aka “The Flying Squirrel” just turned six and she’s already captured the attention of the entire surfing world. Watch the video below.
Matthias Pfeiffer filmed most of this on a train ride between Valencia and Barcelona. Although I grabbed a frame from a portion of the video where he uses the mirror effect I actually prefer the parts where he employs other more subtle editing; specifically the part near the beginning where the flickering of the lights goes to the beat.
Watch the video for Unifono’s “Flight of Fancy” below.
My favourite animation studio, Australia’s Rubber House, is back with some new work. Greg and Ivan were recently presented with a dream opportunity from Adult Swim; carte blanche to write, design, and produce as many short animations as they could come up with.
There are eight shorts currently airing on Adult Swim and the duo are posting them, one by one, to their tumblr (here) every day this week. Watch two of my favourites so far, below.
