A great little film by Yamamura Animation. Kind of twisted, but certainly really good.
How does one come up with this?
This is a motion graphics project that I made in one day, for the NOS. The NOS is the biggest government funded news station in the Netherlands.
On November 12, in the Netherlands the Noorderslag Festival was broadcasted live on National TV. I designed and animated the opening animation, bumpers and name titles. Be sure to click ‘FULL’ in the bottom right corner of the video, if your computer agrees with that
Please let me know what you think!
Check out this great little Kotex/Disney production from 1946, which explains the menstruation process, cleverly avoiding all hints to sexuality. Sounds like a possible cool new feature in Disneyland! Still relevant today, so if you’re a girl and +10 years, be sure to watch it
Free Range Studios is a creative agency with high integrity. They’ve created Story of Stuff, a short film about what’s wrong with the way the industry treats the world. Check it out and spread the word!
Let’s hope many more creative talents will give up their work for the commercial world, and use their very powerful art to the advantage of the world and all the creatures on it.
Hey there people,
I don’t like to advertise on my blog. That’s why this blog has no advertising on it whatsoever … ever. I’m proud of that. It means to you, the reader, that you know I write for my pleasure exclusively and have the intention to just share the joy, with no further strings attached. However, there are exceptions. Sometimes companies create products that are really cool. Super Mario Galaxy, by Nintendo, is one of these products. This game is extremely well made. I choose to voluntarily advertise it, because I think it will seriously improve the quality of your life
If you ‘liked’ any of the Super Mario titles of the past, you will definitely like Super Mario Galaxy very, very much. The game has all the charm and magic of the now retro Mario’s, and more! The playability, although constantly changing, is extremely smooth with the wiimote and nunchuck at all times, making 3D absolutely not a complicating factor – on the contrary. Once again, you’re the plumber, saving the princess. Just forget about the storyline, you already know it. Super Mario is all about the journey.
The environments are created with gorgeous simplicity and have, especially in cooperation with the music, a very warm and friendly feel to them, even the evil parts of the galaxy. Through what really are hundreds of puzzles, you make your way though Mario’s Galaxy, a large collections of small to tiny planets. Many strange things are done with gravity, as you sometimes walk upside down, or use magnetic objects to move through space. The game is so crammed with inovative ideas, that while you’re making your way through this adventure, you’ll be amazed at each new piece of joy that is released to you, step by step.
The game is sort of multi-player for 1.5 people, in a cooperative mode. One player can walk Mario around, while the other collects the so-called ‘star-bits’, shiny, colourfull pieces that are everywhere you go. Also, (and this is a little secret untill you find it out) the other player can hold certain items, like giant rolling balls on some planets. Even though the game isn’t really multi-player, this way you can give your kid something to do while you get to be Mario anyways
It is absolutely amazing how the makers of this game have once again succeeded in re-inventing themselves and gaming in general. I will stop evangelizing after the next sentence, because this is getting disgusting.
Quit your job, get a Wii, get Super Mario Galaxy.
Cool animated music videos of Los Campesinos!
It is absolutely amazing to see how close this animation comes to reality. As a Dutchman, I can tell you that this animation, made by Paul Terry, shows you exactly what Holland is like. Wonderfully supported by traditional Dutch folk music. Enjoy.
