Video of the Day: “Speed Dating” by Meghann Artes


Quirky short by award-winning filmmaker/animator, Meghann Artes. Especially love her use of handmade elements and bright colours. Artes’ hybrid animation/live-action style (which involves frame by frame pixilation using Dragonframe software, 2 Macs, and multiple cameras) also gives it a really fun, cartoony-vibe. Watch “Speed Dating” below!
