Love this little animation by Amy Lockhart and Marc Bell. It’s several years old now so if Maisie over at It’s Nice That hadn’t dug it up I might have never seen it. Watch the animation below!

You can now watch animator Mikey Please’s stunning stop-motion film “Marilyn Myller” in its entirety! I’d been waiting what seemed like forever to see this. You might remember Mikey’s previous film “The Eagleman Stag” which was also made from thousands of handmade foam models. Watch the film below!

Best of Kickstarter: “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared”

donthugmeimscared

Becky & Joe are the creators of “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared”, a brilliant video series that mixes live action, stop motion, 2d animation, puppetry, learning, and a touch of pure evil. You can see the first two episodes here and here. They’ve just announced plans to make several more episodes and would love to do it independently so they can keep the creative spirit of the show alive.

Watch the video below!

“Move Mountain” animation by Kirsten Lepore

kirstenlepore-movemountain

One of the most talented artists I know, Kirsten Lepore, has finally released her CalArts graduate thesis film and it is incredible. “Move Mountain” is a masterpiece, a wonderful story about healing, expertly told and gorgeously animated. This is what it looks like when a filmmaker has complete control of her craft.

I interviewed Kirsten last year and we talked about her previous films, and briefly about how a song by The Knife kinda inspired “Move Mountain” (read the interview here). She remains one of only a few people to ever guest post on Booooooom, and her post of hand drawn animations is still one of my favourites in the history of this site (see it here).

Check out those links, turn up your speakers, turn down your lights, and enjoy her film below!

Watch the trailer and a time-laspe below! Excuse me while I watch them both again, too!
