There’s a serene, dreamy quality to animator and director, Eran Hilleli’s work. Even in the short snippets he creates, he is able to capture a lovely sense of wonder in the movement and the design of hisÂ characters.
London-based, Canadian animator and recent MA Animation graduate from Royal College of Art, Nicolas MÃ©nard just released his wonderful graduation animation online.
We take at look at it and another one of his films as he talks about his work and what influences him.
The year started off on a high for this young illustrator with the news that he’d been nominated for a BAFTA. Having only recently graduated from an MA course, it’s a great achievement for Eamonn O’Neill and a superb place to start on his career path.
Martin Allais is a strong all-rounder, doing as much art and design as he does direction. Here are some examples of videos he’s directed, which we really like for their originality and mixture of techniques.
Beijing-based animation student and illustrator Sean Soong has created this engaging and gruesome short animated film that comes with a message that many of us who use urban subway systems can relate to.
Jamie Caliri and team have created a fascinating gothic style stop-motion animated music video to accompany Portland-based band The Shins’ recent track: ‘The Rifle’s Spiral’. We really like the creative use of materials in the piece, that includes playing cards, rough paper, string, clay and playing cards. Enjoy!
Enjoying the beautiful clean animated short from Hannover-based Hardy Seiler. He created this as part of a degree project for a fictional educational television programme. Particularly striking is the inventiveness of each new segment of the film. We hope to see more of this guy in the future!
