Have fun: videos and animations

A quoi ça sert l'amour

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)

Day Off the Dead: Watch as a dead guy and dead gal fall in love through a series of short, sweet sentimental segments. (via Suzanne G.)

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.

One more alternative trailer version: Psycho, yes, the Hitchcock film, as a romantic comedy by Peter Debruge. The explanation of how he did it is here. (via The Tattered Coat)

The Angry Alien Bunnies have two new animations: The War of the Worlds and Highlander in 30 seconds with bunnies.

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.

Update 2: ok, last update. Away is a nice animation by Monkmus with a Eric Satie composition as soundtrack. Take a look on his other animations too. (via the nonist)

    That should keep us busy, yes 🙂 Thanks for the links; no matter how ‘painful’ the first movie is, it is also a great piece of animation.

    here’s a translation made by Google of the Edith Piaf’s song “à quoi ça sert l’amour”.
    With what that is used, love?
    One always tells
    Foolish stories
    With what that is used to like?
    The love is not explained!
    It is a thing like that!
    Who comes one does not know from where
    And takes to you suddenly.
    Me, I intended to say
    That the love makes suffer,
    That the love makes cry,
    With what that is used to like?
    Is the love, that used for what?
    With us to give of the joy
    With tears with the eyes…
    They is sad and marvellous!
    However one often says
    That the love is disappointing
    That there is one on two
    Who is never happy…
    Even when it was lost
    The love which one knew
    You a taste of honey leaves –
    The love it is eternal!
    All that it is very pretty,
    But when all is finished
    There remain to you nothing
    That an immense sorrow…
    All that now
    Te seems tearing
    Tomorrow, will be for you
    A memory of joy!
    All things considered, if I included/understood,
    Without love in the life,
    Without its joys, its sorrows,
    One lived for nothing?
    Yes! Look at me!
    With each time I believe in it!
    And I would always believe in it…
    That is used for that the love!
    But you, you are the last!
    But toi’ you are the first!
    Before you nothing had there
    With you I am well!
    It is you whom I wanted!
    It is you whom I needed!
    You that I would always like…
    That is used for that the love!
