Logorama by H5 from Grafik Magazine on Vimeo.

Four years in the making, H5′s animation feature (as seen above) looks intriguing. The film originally debuted at the Cannes Film Festival, earning the Best Short Film honor in the Cannes Critics’ Week Competition.

Logorama is 17 minutes of Hollywood blockbuster action, rife with car chases, natural disasters, and hostage-taking, but created entirely out of real world logotypes and brand characters. In it, you’ll see the Michelin Man, the Haribo kid, Bob’s Big Boy, Mr. Pringle and Ronald McDonald, but in some very unfamiliar roles playing the classic movie archetypes of good guys, bad guys and foils.

Anyone know where it’s screening?

Stop Motion Paper Cutting

Dig this stop-motion film for the NZ Book Council. The short uses roughly 3,000 still images to animate a portion of Maurice Gee’s novel, Going West. The piece was produced by Colenso BBDO and animated by Andersen M Studio.

“The entire film is handmade, using only 10A scalpel blades and paper,” explains Martin Andersen. “It was photographed on two SLR cameras and lit using Dedo lights.”

To see more stop-motion fun in the paper making kind see below (more…)

Graphic Designer/Client Relationship

This hilarious scenerio between a graphic designer and his client is all too familiar. Ironically this video was made using xtranormal, a ‘text-to-movie’ service that turns users’ scripts into mini-films using its predesigned characters and backgrounds.

Dead­line is an ambitious senior project by Bang-​yao Liu, a stu­dent at Savan­nah Col­lege of Art and Design. Liu used over 6,000 Post-It notes to complete this life size pixel animation full of finely executed iconography.

Where my idea comes from is that every time when I am busy, I feel that I am not fighting with my works, I am fighting with those post-it notes and deadline. I manipulating the post-it notes to do pixel-like stop motion and there are some interactions between real actor and post-its.
