Friday again! I was so inspired by the watercoloured style of last week’s video that I found another for today. Brume, cailloux et métaphysique by Lisa Matuszak is such a visually wonderful piece. It doesn’t have a story, per se, but it does have narrative.
It’s a real aesthetic experience, so I won’t waste more time with words, just take a look:
Happy Friday everyone! To celebrate the (arguably) best day of the week, why don’t we watch another awesome student animation film? You guys know how much I love these. Are we enjoying this weekly feature?!
Today I want to share Kagemono: The Shadow Folk by Sabrina Cotugno with you all. First of all, how beautiful are the watercolour backgrounds?! I love it. But the story is charming and suspenseful and ultimately very satisfying. I promise.
It’s friday, and that means we’re going to take a few minutes out of our busy schedules to sit and enjoy a little student film! This week it’s WIND by Robert Loebel, a fantastic little film about adaptation and everyday life. Right until the end I thought it was purely a concept piece. Fun to realize there was a story all along.
It’s that time of the week again! Where I show you student films that I found and loved, even if they’re a couple of years old – like this one. My Big Brother was a part of Cartoon Brew’s 5th annual Student Animation Festival, and I am sure you’ll see why I like it.
Great textures, right? The digital stop animation effect is really cute. I could see this style (particularly with the child’s narration) easily being on a kid’s programming channel. There used to be lots of these types of short films on TV when I was really young. I wonder if they still show them.
Here’s another student film I’ve found and loved, hand selected for your viewing pleasure! I really found the concept behind Happy Unhappy to be compelling. It was a relatable idea within some cute animation.
I went to see Into the Woods yesterday and have been turning it over in my head ever since. I knew I wanted to write a review about it before I went to see it but I didn’t expect to have as much to say about it as I do.
I’ll preface by saying that I really do enjoy theatre, especially of the musical variety. I started university as a theatre major and the love of the craft has never left me. I tend to stay away from movies based on theatre plays because I find the transition from stage to screen a little awkward. And I have never seen Into the Woods on stage (though I do want to see it). That all being said, the film version of the play was uncomfortable. I’ve got both pros and cons about it.
