Animation: RL Grime ft. Djemba Djemba “Valhalla”
Animation / May 31, 2015

Love David Rudnick’s graphic work and typography for RL Grime’s debut album, VOID. This is flawless work, and I love how it carries over into the animation for RL Grime’s single “Valhalla”. The video was directed by David Rudnick and Daniel Swan, and features animation by Bob Walmsley and Andrew Keyser. Watch it below.

Animation: “Trifling Habits” by Sarina Nihei
Animation / May 22, 2015

This short by Royal College of Art student, Sarina Nihei, is hand-drawn animation perfection. The Japanese-born animator has created a masterpiece, and from what I understand it’s her first-year film?! That’s enough to make me want to put everything I made in school in a pile, and set fire to it (I was maybe going to do that this weekend anyways). The uneasy universe of the story is brilliantly brought to life by sound designer Pat Hime. This is one of those things you watch and as you are watching it you already know it is your favourite. Watch “Trifling Habits” below.

“Eager” Animation by Allison Schulnik
Animation / May 21, 2015

This is cinematic perfection, it’s truly one of the finest pieces of animation I’ve seen. I’ve praised Allison Schulnik’s animations in the past ( and ) but I think this film is her strongest work to date. It is absolutely gorgeous, and also terrifying, and I guess that’s sort of how I feel about all of her work. Watch the Allison Schulnik’s animation “Eager” below! Turn up the volume, turn off the lights and make full screen (if your computer can handle it, it’s worth it).
