a little inspiration
I can't get enough stop motion animation or creative animation. Today I found out about cartoonbrew.com from Ward Jenkins (@wardomatic on twitter). They have a whole section on stop motion and I had to drag myself away from the computer to get some work done. My mind is swirling with ideas of animations I want to create! Now where can I learn how to make what is in my head a reality. hmmm.

here are a few of my favorites:



United Airlines commercial, beautiful and poetic. If more commercials were like this I wouldn't fast forward them!




Undone from Hayley Morris on Vimeo.

Haley Morris graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design. Undone, her senior film project, is a tribute to her grandfather who suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease. Very touching piece.


the Blank Page from George Metaxas on Vimeo.

This one was made only with cardboard materials.

FLUFFY MC CLOUD from conorfinnegan on Vimeo.

This is so cute. and the mix of live motion with animation is so creative.

Something Left, Something Taken from Tiny Inventions on Vimeo.

I really love the fabric look of the figures in this one!




The United Arab Emirates Ecological Footprint is an initiative aimed at inspiring people in UAE countries to reduce their individual footprint. This clever stop-motion promotional makes the point by using recycled paper figures and settings. LOVE the use of paper in this one!



Opening theme to United States of Tara - a series on Showtime. Love all the drawn elements, especially the retro gal in the kitchen.
