Breakin’ Brussels Sprouts / Max Winston

July 1st, 2015


Can’t be stop motion, right? But yes ’tis and we are indeed a little obsessed of late with the avant grade approach of Max Winston and how he’s been bringing his edge to the airwaves. 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. Spinning clay records so kids clean their plates!

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

Uncle Grandpa – Total Reality / Max Winston

June 16th, 2015

More high throttle hijinx from the warped wizardry of Max Winston. Amazing lighting as Uncle Grandpa goes to Wonderland and things get weird even for him. Winston’s sweetly sick puppets are almost more engaging than real people, making them all the more disturbing.

Watch here for the series animation test and also to catch an in-depth Dragonframe interview with Winston on his approach to puppet construction and story.

Coastal Cool / Buck

June 8th, 2015

Simplicity is never really simple…Buck Studios does a great job with this spare and clean presentation. “Coastal Cool” is a spot for Sherwin Williams/HGTV and seeks to inspire everyday people to become artists in their own homes. The sharp lighting brings a sunny day and the creamy negative space just takes all cares away…not to mention the smooth, aquatic yet subtly crab-like motion in the animation. Honestly, all that planning must have been a beach! Here also is a piece from Buck, from the yesteryear of 2010, that they did for the launch of Google eBooks. Read on to hear from HGTV about why they chose Buck. Read more »

Opiuo – Quack Fat / Dropbear

June 1st, 2015


Opiuo’s single “Quack Fat” off the album Meraki has exploded with the collaboration with Animator Dropbear (aka Jonathan Chong). The bold and vibrant imagery is a visual feast of colour and movement created with a retro Walkman, 40 paper pyramids, 40 micro cassettes, 240 audio cassettes, 5,600 feet of video tape, 108 floppy discs, 2,812 Photos, and hundreds of hours of stop-motion animation! The result is a funk infused display that brings Opiuo’s song to life.
