But my favourite of all is the distinctly lo-fi recycling film for Disney (doesn’t look like there’s any deep linking on their site, look for it in the overview or idents section). It’s a mixture of puppeteered live action and stop motion, all kids stuff should be like this, just gives you that warm fuzzy feeling watching it.
Also the preview of the Lost & Found short film looks awesome too.
There’s nothing better than a free drink and on Saturday I had plenty :) Courtesy of my friends Ant & Hal, who are launching a new brand of Cachaça in the UK – Abelha. For those who don’t know, Cachaça is a sugar cane based spirit (a little bit like rum, but not rum) from Brasil. It’s the main ingredient of the world famous Caipirinha cocktail. I’m so jealous, wish I had my own brand of booze.
It was a fancy dress do and we took the Brazilian theme to it’s logical conclusion by going in pubeless naked suits… Check out the photos of the event here »
Rex has just put his winter 2008 reel on his blog, including some of his work onLittleBigPlanet, his new animation series for MTV – Grip Wrench and some stuff he did at Poke for Orange. Awe inspiring stuff, I’m massively jealous of his skills.
Totoro is one of my favourite animated films, and a lot of other peoples too by the hundreds to amazing art works produced for the Totoro Forest Project. All the work has now been auctioned off the raise money for the National Trust Totoro Forest Foundation, but you can see all the Totoro inspired work in the online gallery.
Huge cock shaped skyscraper development in Shoreditch! Dave spotted this piss take fly poster outside our office this morning. As Dave points out:
“Someone has gone to a lot of effort for a knob gag. Good on them!”
I quite agree :)
While I’m on the subject of knob gags, here’s a nice cock t-shirt that the Roope sent me.
Here’s the scene out of Superbad where Seth describes his childhood cock drawing problem. I got sent this a lot, since making Cock-a-doodle a few years back everyone thinks that I had a childhood cock drawing problem…
And finally a very enthusiastic fan of Superbad has made this series of animations based on Seth’s penis drawings. Good work and cheers Roelant for the link.
