“Money Bunny Blues” was created by Ellen Coons of Detroit’s College for Creative Studies. This stop motion short is both quirky and idiosyncratic. We love Ellen’s handmade universe replete with coins, fruit and household objects, like candy, playing cards, etc.
Ian Cheng’s creative use of motion capture is a lot of fun. Cheng says of his first commissioned piece:
“For Brats, I used a familiar animated narrative– hapless hunter vs. terroristic rabbit– as a format to grow a garden of signature motions. This collection of motions becomes material to recompose a new non-narrative choreography that animates the bodies of Liars. The Brats video documents this entropic haunting– from the ingredients of familiar meaning arises the terror of reckless non-meaning. A dog wanders indifferently through the animation, true to its nature.”
We’re seeing a lot of good animations coming out of Israel these days! Neta Cohen’s wild “Tap To Retry” is a wonderful mix of stop-motion paper and dazzling eye-candy. Cohen graduated from the department of visual communication at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem recently.

Oliver & Spike is a beautiful indie game still in development. This video gives you a quick look at how you’ll use dimension jumping as actual game-play on the first world. It’s very simple to start with, but the dimensions and their rules will get increasingly complex and involved.
Please keep in mind that all graphics, and specially the user-interface design, are mostly for development purposes in this early development stage. The quality of the graphics is in no way an indication for the final game.
