Recently we received a number of inspiring examples of motion picture work via our Contact form. The quality and breadth of the work is amazing and we just had to share a collection of our favourite videos. These artists have an ability to tell a story and create a mood using video and audio. Here are some examples of how real-world footage, animation or a combination of both can be used to great effect. We'll let the work speak for itself, and remember to support the artists by adding your comments below. Enjoy!
Kinetic typography (or motion typography) is described as the art of animated text. These kinetic typography videos are quickly becoming very popular for a reason - the outcomes are visually stunning. It is a great source for discovering inspiration in an unusual way that portrays the technique of combining typography with evoking a sense of motion. In this article, we showcase the top 15 kinetic typography videos today using various techniques. Enjoy!
Following on from last week's post, 20 Wonderfully Scary CGI Monsters, we now lighten things up and showcase some of the cutest CGI characters around. Big heads, big eyes and small bodies are common elements in cute character design. Soft and furry textures are also prevalant with widespread use of pastel colours. You'll be left wanting to take these cuddly creatures home!
If you've liked a bunch of the stop motion videos we have previously featured here on TIB, you will love this one. Produced by Carlos Lascano, this story follows a couple of pencil-outlined birds that escape from a little girls drawing, leading us through the life that she dreams of. Viewing the making of the video is highly recommended, and can be seen at Carlos' site. Here you can see the amount of love and work that went into this project, from the creation of the characters and buildings, to the hundreds of different photographs that were then pieced together to create this beautiful piece.
This short film, titled "Logorama" is produced by the French animation collective H5, François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy & Ludovic Houplain, with all music by Human. The movie features a short story produced using the worlds most famous brands, from McDonalds to Haribo, Audi to MSN. It really is quite bizarre but at the same time completely fantastic! We're not going to make a thing of short posts like this, but we felt this was well worth sharing. We would have collected a few more films, but as this one 15 minutes long alone, we decided to keep it (kind of) short and sweet. What do you think of the film? Let us know!
Stop motion animation is a technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence. This post showcases fifteen clever stop motion animation examples, featuring thousands of separate images when put together. Find the time to watch them all - they serve as incredible inspiration for all of you creative people! These really are just crazy!
