Lots of great stuff’s been added to Booooooom TV this past week! Absolutely have to recommend you check out Oddfellow’s spectacular opening titles for Blend, aka the best animation/motion festival in the world, put on by the folks behind Wine after Coffee. The coolest part was they included all the attendees names in the animation not just the speakers! Here’s a very diverse selection of videos to check out!
#1 Radiohead “I Promise” – unreleased track from OK Computer!
#2 “The Blend Is Near” – Love the characters – A+++
#3 “Däwit” by David Jansen – A poetic woodcut-style animation.
1 – Watch: “Coeur Croisé” – The art direction in this is A+.
2 – Watch: “Disillusionment of 10 Point Font” – One of our favs this year!
3 – Watch: “Orion” – not exactly sure how they created this effect.
4 – Watch: “Hills Beyond a River” – a mesmerizing journey through a city.
5 – Watch: “A Continuous Shape” – lovely portrait of a stone carver.
A series of tableaus playfully critiquing the imprecise administrative eye of law and regulation by Toronto-based artist Hudson Christie (previously featured here). In “Close Enough,” harmless objects are misidentified as unsafe due to their incidental resemblance to something else. See more images below.
