I love tactile animation & design. It’s my favourite kind of work to do. I love getting away from the computer screen and building something physical, I love the charm of real world imperfections. So this naturally brought a smile to my face:
We’ll start off with a music video that inspired me to do my own stop motion work. It’s the Bubblicious music video from Rex The Dog. I love the simple DIY look & feel and the way the ‘behind-the-scenes’ is worked into the narrative showing off the process and making it even more interesting. Really nice work.
Much Better Now
Next is another piece that brings along a smile from Salon Alpin, a Portuguese studio. This integrates a 3D character into a stop motion background. The result is seamless and looks like loads of painstaking effort. It pays off though…
This one’s a classic and remarkable since it’s a student project. From Bang-yao Liu.
Time to Go
One last one I came across recently: a beautiful piece from Melbourne-based studio Oh Yeah Wow for Wax Tailor: ‘Time To Go’. Strong concept, smoothly executed.
Hmmm, time to get out my Nikon and make some puppets…
