Just found this great little animated music video by Wyld Stallyons, a UK direction/animation studio. This is seriously amazing – check out all different camera angles and focuses (foci?). And the vibratey effect. Warning though- your heart may break for the little blue guy. I definitely watched this a couple times over.

Music: The Blizzards – The Reason

Sorry, I can’t embed it but here’s a couple of screen caps. Click here to see it.

There’s some other really great stuff they’ve done on their site, as well. I also quite enjoyed the UK Jewish Cinema Film Festival Trailer. The best part was the frogs. I’m a sucker for animated animals.

I can’t believe I didn’t share the title sequence for Catch Me If You Can in my last post. This is one of my favourites.

Designed by Kuntzel & Deygas of Add a Dog? a design firm in France. Their website is definitely worth checking out, as well.

We all remember Marge’s class where she talked about title sequences. Something I’d really never put much thought in to before, I definitely now take the time to enjoy them. This site also appreciates a nice title sequence, fittingly called The Art of the Title Sequence. The nice part about this site is that it shows some of the stills as well as giving you the option to watch the sequence.

Which reminds me of this hilarious mash-up: if Star Wars met Saul Bass.

So I’m going to start featuring local talent on here because I think it’ll be cool, and the best part about blogging is that you guys are forced to read about what I think is cool regardless of whether or not you also think it’s cool. Our first artist is Whistler based, and all you Whistler folk out there are most likely familiar with him, as his paintings can be seen lots of places in town, especially Sushi Village. I love his use of colour and line and wish I was brilliant enough to paint like him.

Here’s a little teaser, check out more on his website.

Just found this portfolio on Behance and was delighted by some of the typography in it. Fun colours, fun shapes by Luis Vicente Hernandez. And its even cooler because it’s all in Spanish. Check it out: here’s his behance portfolio and here’s his site.

Just wanted to say happy holidays to you all from us 4th year GDMAers. We are happily snug at home right now with an extra 15 pounds of baking and home-cooked meals on us (if we’re lucky! which I definitely am). We hope that you are also enjoying yourselves and that your christmas or other holiday cheer is plentiful and that you are able to spend time with family.

This is sounding cheesy so I’m going to end it there. Get drunk on turkey tonight.


i want.

OH MY GOODNESS. I want this. Immediately. It would be so delightfully satisfying to pop once you completed a day, especially when if it was a particularly heinous day or one with a scary first date.

via roadside scholar, find it for $29.99 at perpetual kid.
