Beautiful dystopic things for your Friday.

According to the description: This film was made over the last two years in our evenings, weekends and days off. We had no budget but a lot of help from our very talented and generous friends.”

See? Make your own way! It’s the best way, if you can swing it.

(Also, the vertical format looked great on my iPhone, and I assume it would look good on tablets and other vertical things.)

They sure don’t make them like they used to, for better and for worse. The innovation and sheer people-power at the start of the industry is mind-melting, and along with Disney, Fleischer Studios was at the forefront. Who doesn’t love a good process video, and who doesn’t love a good Popeye cartoon?

I am mighty excited about the new Jim Guthrie album Takes Time.

Dan Berry created this music video for the song The Rest Is Yet To Come, and over at Dan’s site he has an informative process post detailing the various stages of its creation.

Tea Ballin! -  Scott MacDonald. A continuous loop created for loopdeloop.org. Each month, animators from around the world create looping animations based on a given topic. This month was Topic was Sports. On the last Tuesday of the month all of the posted loops are compiled and screened to a live audience at Loop in Melbourne, Australia.

Evoking memories of the Simpsons’ “Man hit in groin with football" this short by Scot MacDonald (of a man hit in the groin with a baseball) reminds us all how painfully funny life can be.

Lovely colors and great character design by Stevie Lewis, visual development artist at Dreamworks. Nice work for sale in her Etsy shop, too.

Chris Sanders (Co-Director of Lilo & Stitch, How To Train Your Dragon, The Croods) shares some unused storyboards from his latest film The Croods.

I think I’d rather just watch 90 mins of Sanders drawing storyboards than watch the finished movie; these are beautiful!

More storyboards here, too.

This looks so great! An animated-short anthology with films by Charles Huettner, Dave Prosser, Sean Buckelew, Louise Bagnall, Jake Armstrong & Erin Kilkenny, Eamonn O’Neil, Daniella Orsini & Joe Orton, Scott Benson, Alex Grigg, Conor Finnegan, Christen Bach, and more. These folks are doing it up right, too - when they get it all assembled this spring, you’ll be able to get a great-sounds pile of goodies along with the films, and you can follow the project on twitter and tumblr too.

NOTE: The trailer is ever-so-slightly NSFW, if your work gets upset about split-second flashes of animated non-aroused male nudity.

By the way, here’s some advice from anecdotal evidence and personal experience: make stuff you want to make - personal projects give you room to explore, and they lead to more interesting client work. Well done, Late Night Work Club animators!

Hey everyone, the trailer for our independent animation anthology ‘Late Night Work Club project #1’ just hit the internet!  Take a look and spread it around.  Check out the website for more info.

Scott Benson has done a great job organizing it all and I couldn’t be more pleased to be included with so many great animators.

I missed this when it was posted last summer, but I’m glad I found it now. Dave Cooper's drawings, Johnny Ryan's writing, and Nick Cross's animation? Slam dunk! Why aren't there more of these?
