  • “Mooon” by James Kwan

  • “Money Bunny Blues” by Ellen Coons

    “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.

  • Brats by Ian Cheng

    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.”

  • Tap To Retry by Neta Cohen

    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.

  • God Is Kidding by Balachsan & Tretyakov

    Hot off the press from Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design in Israeli comes “God is Kidding”. This was created by students Boaz Balachsan and Dima Tretyakov, with the concept of children giving their opinions about God and faith. The idea recalls the Irish animated series “Give Up Yer Aul Sins”, which was based on 1960s recordings of children telling Bible stories, but Balachsan and Tretyakov add an idiosyncratic mixed media style and smart visual/audio transitions.

  • Skip by Sarah Jolley

    Sarah Jolley, from Vancouver Film School, has just released “Skip” — a fun, little animation with a dash of Buster Keaton.

  • The Playful Whale Trail Theme Song

    The playful Whale Trail sees Gruff declaring, “This is a motivational song, let’s all get along!” This has been inspired by the accompanying iPhone and iPad game of the same name designed and developed by usTwo.

    I’m on the whale trail,
    And I won’t fail whale
    Just set sail
    With heavy tail to the bottom of the clouds

    And when I set sail
    I won’t tell tales
    Without fail
    With abigail
    To the toppermost of the sky

    There ain’t no riots in the sky
    Just a riot of colour
    That will last forever.

  • Halfway by Rayons

    This is an enchanting animation created by Jason Malcolm Brown and Aya Yamasaki Brown (aka Overture) for a Japanese musician named Rayons.

  • Cup of Tea by Fernanda Ribeiro

    Fernanda Ribeiro graduated from the Vancouver Film School’s Classical Animation course. This is her Flash short, which is both cute and nicely executed.
