Don Hertzfeldt’s ‘It’s Such A Beautiful Day’

Here’s a really special treat for you animation fans! Don Hertzfeldt has released his feature ‘It’s Such A Beautiful Day’ on Vimeo’s On-Demand service – it’s just $2 to watch or $6 for digital download. I got the download and for $6 it will get more than it’s worth in re-plays. I cannot hype this film enough; it is my favourite animated feature since ‘Mary and Max’ and is instantly in my top 10. It is technically and creatively innovative, but more than that, it is surreally poignant, genuinely moving, and darkly comic. It’s a masterpiece. Basically just watch it. Now.

“Pin” Short Film

Quirky little piece, this one, made as a student exercise in giving personality to a simple object – and successfully done in my opinion!

“Notes on Biology” Short

This is a really cool hand-drawn flip-book-style animation by Ornana Films, centred around a bored students’ doodlings in his work book. Chaotic and funny, and well done – good combo.

Nokia “Dot” Commercial

Wonderful little animation here, made to promote the camera function for the Nokia N8, by Aardman Animations and Sumo Science. Completely shot with the phone (and an adapted lens) in miniature – 3D printing techniques used to make all of the ‘Dots’ because she was too small to be made as a conventional model! A good making-of film can be seen at www.vimeo.com/15056338. A sister animation was made at the other end of the scale called ‘Gulp’ which can be seen here: www.vimeo.com/26877221.

“Russell Howard’s Good News” Title Sequence

Blac Ionica made this title sequence to “Russell Howard’s Good News” TV show. Sadly the show is not nearly as awesome as its title sequence, but it really is an awesome title sequence! Innovatively made using cut-out photographs in stop-motion – love it.

“GRAVITY / UN RÊVE DE DEMAIN”

Bloody lovely little short here; I do enjoy seeing something really clever, and have always had a soft-spot for pixillation (animations of human puppets). Thank Filip Piskorzynski.
