The stop-motion landscape featured in this spot is really spectacular.
Cheras City, part of the Kuala Lumpur metropolis, is enjoying its Ikea store, and I can see why. The puppeteer’s energy level is infectious, as is the catchy ear candy.
Frame-perfect edit points perfectly hide the transition between “scenes” in this audacious little spot.
If you like to step away from your computer and get hands on with a project, then you should definitely check out this behind the scenes at Laika Studios. This video takes us on a tour through the studio’s rapid prototyping department, aka the 3D printing for major stop motion feature films! This particular segment focuses on “The Boxtrolls” and how the faces were digitally created, printed, and applied via the stop motion process.
Three roommates look to add a fourth while hoping to please the “house” itself along the way. A wacky concept to be sure, but the commitment to the concept and the execution in this stop motion film are impressive!
ODD NY continues the Ford F-150 advertising campaign in this new rugged ad. These can be challenging sometimes because the design is equally as important as the animation which takes a ton of coordination. This campaign seems to have been running forever, so much so that you most likely affiliate this style of animation with the Ford truck!
As a daily subway rider, this spoke to me on a content and a visual/process level. (Pole Faulters give me the heebie-jeebies.) The stop-motion wooden characters are imbued with rider-rage thanks to a wire-jointed neck and post expressions.
Another Jake Fried animation featuring his signature sequential ink/white-out drawings. What a process!
This piece, and the artist’s other work, almost gave me a brain lapse when I tried to wrap my head around it. Sequential drawings with ink and white-out dazzle and frazzle in equal measure.
Sarofsky shows off their design skills in the new main title sequence for OFFF Mexico. Each speaker’s title card cycles through numerous styles of design, all very different from one another. You would think this could be jarring, although since the placement of the name never changes it gives your eye more time to register everything.
