I’m not sure if there will be much more posts till Friday, so I hope that I keep you busy with this collection of animations and videos. There are more on animation and video archives, but an advice: the archives pages are heavy. If you want to see them you have to be patient.
A quoi ça sert l’amour is a wonderful short animation by Louis Clichy. A quoi ça sert l’amour is also the name of the song theme, singed by Edith Piaf and Theo Sarapo. The film is production of the French company Cube Creative that produces TV advertisings, clips and animations. Suggestions to check out: Bip Bip, Antargaz, Click Clak and Mange!. (via Blogdecine)
Edition is everything and Robert Ryang knows this. This very talented guy graduated with a double major in film studies and psychology is now famous by his alternative trailer version of The Shining. His trailer version, called Shinning, transformed the Stanley Kubrick’s horror thriller in a romantic comedy. The New York Times article tells the story about the trailer and Ryang. More
of his trailer versions made by his colleagues of PS 260: West Side Story horror flick by Tom Colella and Titanic scary movie by Dustin Stephens. (via Cynical-C, The Tattered Coat and Waxy)
Virgil Widrich: one of my old posts with links for two fantastic short-films directed and edited by Widrich – (you won’t find this post on my videos archive since I can’t updated it).
MuffinFilms 12 funny-silly-non-sense flash animations about muffins. The “Beware” episode is my favourite.
The Periwig-Maker: A story of a man who sealed himself off in medieval plague-infested London to escape danger of infection. When an ill little girl seeks his help his life is turned upside down. (via Suzanne G.)
Update: Robert Ryang said on my comments that he didn’t do the other trailers. He said
I didn’t create the other trailers. west side story was done by tom colella, and titanic by dustin stephens. we all work together as assistant editors at PS 260, an edit house in NY. Just want to give credit to the talent responsible.
Ok, changes did it. And please send my congratulations to them Robert. You all made a fantastic work.
