Simonas Šileika, the creator of NODUS, wanted the animated film be a symbolic manifestation of the circle of life through reincarnation. Using artist Art G’s evocative track, Šileika has created a stunning visual piece which throbs and pulsates in time with the music’s beat.

How-to-lose-weight-in-60-seconds

Every year, hundreds of millions of suckers people desperately spend billions of dollars trying to lose weight. We put ourselves through 2 minute exercise routines, start crash-diets, and try some of the most inane ways to melt away the pounds we have piled upon. Animator Dave Carter’s short is an exaggerated, tongue-in-cheek look at the various ways people could possibly lose weight in under 60 seconds.

Dave says that this is his first clay animation, and adds that this will be (probably) the only time he will “use a hairdryer for 14 hours straight.” The short won the best minute film award at the 2010 Animation Block Party in NYC, and has also been screened at many film festivals.

Note: Be warned that the video is somewhat risqué due to some scenes with poop and drug references.

What-is-Dead-May-Never-Die

French animator Kadavre Exquis’ (previously) latest animation is a mind-melting exploration of various facets of retro technology, sounds and music. The film is spliced together with lo-fi animation taken from the ’80s, old thriller film titles, and experimental films.

If you liked the electro-pop soundtrack accompanying the short, you will be interested to know that the artist has released a small soundtrack of jingles, which he composed over the past few months.

“PCKTKNFE” is five and a half minutes of pure geeky entertainment. A great blend of animation and live action, the music video was created by artist James Dunhour and musician Robert Kinsella. The duo intended the video as a homage to video games, comic books (among many other nerdy things).

The stop-motion video was a six month labor of love for the twosome, with James bringing in his years of experience in building bead sprites, and Robert’s original chiptunes track providing the perfect foil for the animation.

Don’t stop watching the video when the credits roll, as there is a bonus clip at the end.

Childhood-of-a-circle

French animator Kadavre Exquis’ short film “Childhood of a Circle” is one of the most gorgeous pieces of animation I’ve watched this year. The short film tell the tale of Archibald, a lonely bear like creature whose life is suddenly changed by the arrival of a mysterious circle.

The animated film’s lush visuals, soothing background score and an evocative voiceover is a loving homage to classic European cartoons, that some of us were lucky enough to be exposed to in childhood. The OST of the film was composed by Kadavre Exquis himself, with John Kassab, the multi-award winning sound designer from Australia, taking care of sound design.

You can watch the film after the jump.

Gotye---Easy-Way-Out---official-video

I just loved this music video for Gotye’s “Easy Way Out.” The stop-motion animated video was created over a period of 9 months by Oh Yeah Wow, a production studio based in Melbourne, Australia. 

The film’s surreal, but evocative visuals were created to tie in effortlessly with the thematic premise of the song – the mind-numbing and depressive elements of doing the same things, day in and day out.

Hit the jump to watch the music video.
