The Outsiders: Hunter S. Thompson, Lou Reed & Frank Zappa

„This trio of merry pranksters didn't give a shit what anybody thought. Or did they? Here's Lou Reed, Frank Zappa and Hunter S. Thompson from a collection of lost interviews that we uncovered in the archives. These recordings were made between 1967 and 1987 thanks to Joe Smith, Howard Smith, and Studs Terkel.“

Perpetual Path

Perpetual Path, Kurzfilm von Maxim Zhestkov über „the dialogue and tension between nature and technology, sound and silence, organic and artificial.“ Wie so oft finde ich das Making Of (auch visuell) eigentlich viel spannender:

3D-printed Character-Animation

Hübsche animierte 3D-gedruckte „Actionfiguren“ von Kouhei Nakama, dann anscheinend durch allerhand Post-Processing-FX gejagt zur Mucke von Broke For Free.

The Blend is near!

Großartige Title-Animation für die „Blend […], a conference-style party in Vancouver for our motion, design & animation family.“

Jonathan Haidt on Why We’re Convinced We’re Right (and everyone else is wrong!)

Jonathan Haidt on Why We’re Convinced We’re Right (and everyone else is wrong!): Are you trapped in an online echo chamber? Society is becoming ever more divided as we seek out information that reinforces our views – but how do we avoid ending up dogmatic and entrenched? Renowned social psychologist Jonathan Haidt shares a shocking…

Kids & Explosions - Swear Words

„Inspired by GIF, this video clip is about the clichés of american antagonisms: Christian thought, homeland love and excesses of the USA.“

Akira Animation-Cels

Der Macher des Tumblrs Subject 28 sammelt Akira-related Storyboard-Zeichnungen, Backgrounds und Animation-Cels, die er mit Detail-Shots abfotografiert (und dabei öfter mal kein diffuses Licht benutzt).

Neural Networks for Character Control

Daniel Holden, Taku Komura und Jun Saito haben ein Neural Network auf Character-Animationen trainiert, mit dem Figuren in Games und CGI einen sehr viel natürlicheren und variantenreicheren und damit auch natürlicheren Bewegungsablauf aufweisen: Phase-Functioned Neural Networks for Character Control. This paper uses a new kind of neural network called a "Phase-Functioned Neural Network" to create…

Tokyo GIFathon

James Curran: „I’m in Tokyo for all of April where I’ll be making a new animation every day for 30 days, inspired by things that I see during my stay.“

Extrapolate

Großartige Animation von Johan Rijpma, 'ne Kombination aus escherschen Drawing-Hand-Loops, anatomischen Zeichnungen und mathematischen Verzerrungen in Koordinatensystemen. In this hand drawn animation a line is being extrapolated through a grid. When the line surpasses the boundaries of the grid, the process spreads to and reflects on its surroundings. Beyond each boundary the extrapolation of movement…

Ash Thorps Design-Files for Ghost in the Shell

Jede Menge Animationen, Logos und 3D-Renderings aus Ghost in the Shell von Ash Thorp: „The sequences and images in the reel represent a compilation of work created for the Ghost in the Shell live action film, which includes everything from animation tests to final assets implemented in the film.“ Unbedingt auf die Website von Thorp…

Fluid-Dynamics from Movement Vectors

Tolle Experimente von Frau Lulu xXX (vorher auf NC: AI-Moebius dreaming of Jimi Hendrix, Neural Style Transfer-App Prisma has Video, still can't dance), die (sofern ich das richtig verstehe) Bewegungs-Vektoren aus Videoclips errechnet und in Fluid Dynamics umsetzt. (via Prosthetic Knowledge)

Generative Typography

John Oquist: „These are a series of generative typographic animations that were designed to be used as illustrations in the 35th Type Director's Club Annual. These were created by generating clouds of particles based on typographic forms, and subjecting them to varying turbulent forces. Others used scripts to create and deform wireframes.“

Voyage into RGB-Space

Lovely animation-short by Rocco Pezzella, great use of color: „An astronaut travels through a black hole reaches an unknown planet. He comes in contact with an entity that is going to change him forever. A parable of life where birth, discovery, experience, contact and awareness are the chapters of this film.“
