This branded content piece for Nissan presents beautifully animated metaphorical days in the life of beings who thrive (and fade) based on their level of energy. Interesting 3D combo of CG and stop-motion. Directed by Tsuneo Goda (creator of Domo-kun). Part of Nissan’s larger Planet Zero campaign.
Still one of my favorite stop-motion animations of all time. This piece by Mark Osborne creates an incredible dystopian future.
This short animation by Javan Ivey is a fascinating effect. It’s also (unintentionally) perhaps one of the best analog visualizations of how programmatic digital art is generated. (for example, many of the demos made with the Hype Framework).
The bar has been raised once again for brickmation. And who better to raise it than Patrick Boivin.
