ATWAB 13

Music videos still haven’t gone out of fashion yet. The possibilities of combining of music and art are still endless. That said, here is Bryan Brinkman’s animated music video for Dot Dot Dot’s “Around The World (And Back).” The animation style of the video doesn’t have a label yet, although we’re sure Bryan might have one. The style involves turning our index fingers into characters, and placing them in various locations. The video follows a […]

Life In Transition by John R. Dilworth

LIT 5

Warning: or just a suggestion, we insist you watch the film before reading on. Really take in the effect of the film. Life In Transition is John R. Dilworth’s opus. Described as “…a visual and symbolic journey depicting the continual transformations of life from birth to death to re-birth”, Life is a personal film that draws heavily from Dilworth’s life, career and knowledge.

Accumulonimbus 4

If there is an animated short that should keep one’s eyes on it through every frame, Andy Kennedy’s Accumulonimbus is that film. An experimental stop-motion piece, every frame is part of some movement that should keep even the most casual stop-motion viewer mesmerized. Andy refers to the film as a meditation of motion and the life cycle of matter. It starts off with organic shapes (mostly spheres) changing in accordance with the rhythm of the […]
