The Elwins – So Down Low / Alan Poon

July 27th, 2015

Post-its are a tool of choice for the pixelated minds of our ADD information age and here, elusive auteur, Alan Poon, uses them to pull off another fun yet deftly woven short in this music video for the Elwins. Poon has an innate sense of timing, framing and idiosyncratically spot-on progression. If you have never watched it, his strangely entrancing music video for the Bowerbirds in 2008,”In our Talons,” is a must see. Read on as the director shares with us how he and his animation team used some favorite Dragonframe tools to exercise hi-fi lo-fi prowess.

1/100 Shibuya Crossing / Terada Mokei

July 13th, 2015


Not a single matchbook cover in Japan survived their merciless patience. Head of the firm at Terada Mokei, Naoki Terada, a self proclaimed “architect, designer, modeler, and culinary specialist” might give J.R.R. Tolkien a run for his money in the universe-creation business. 1/100 is apparently the preferred scale for creating architectural models, but with models like these who would bother building buildings? Creator Naoki explains, “The ‘Architectural Model Accessories Sets’ which originally triggered the establishment of Terada Mokei were originally created to make life easier for myself at the office. In other words, it allowed me to be lazy…” Perhaps the one sense of scale of his that might need to be adjusted. Bravo!

A must see making-of video is below, and all, or at least a portion, of his bag of tricks is revealed in his creation of this collection of ‘Veggie Boogie’ spots for the Storybots.

Pinocchio / Thiago Calçado

June 24th, 2015


Brazilian based Thiago Calçado teams up with Vetor Zero to re-appropriate scenes from the classic tale of Pinocchio. The animations are part of a larger documentary called “A Vida Privada dos Hipopótamos”, exploring the experiences of foreign prisoners inside Brazilian jail. Sparing no attention to detail, the sets and figures are weathered and textured to imperfection, recalling the seminal period of “Once Upon a Time”.

Additional fabrication: Fabiana Fukui
Extra animation help by: Alexandre Elaiuy & D. Lee
