Promoting Good Animation!

I must admit, I'm not caught up on this year's hot tv series. While my husband and in-laws are watching the final episode of "24", I am catching up on the latest online coolness in animation. Here are some highlights from my evening of streaming:

The most interesting use of rotoscope technique I've seen in a while. A really beautiful and innovative piece with many layers (figuratively and literally).

Another unusual piece by Hettie Griffiths is Cardif Viral

SCINTILLATION from Xavier Chassaing. This one, I can't quite figure out: But it is pretty cool to watch!

"Nude" a music video by Dancing Diablo. Some unusual paint-on-glass techniques combined with stopmotion. Note how smooth and slow the magnifying glasses move. That's not easy to do!

Want to see even more? You can see my whole list of favorites from the evening on Twitter!

The rumors are true! On May 1, 2010 at 11:42am I officially became Mrs. Corrie Francis Parks! Thom and I have been yelping our honeymoon down the coast of California and we've found some great places (and a few stinkers). Check out our reviews and have yourself your own romantic getaway. See you when we get back!
