  1. Moving Images: Tissue Animals

    November 29, 2013 by Erin Fletcher

    Enjoy this sweet video of animated origami animals constructed from tissue paper. The creators behind this ad campaign for the Japanese paper manufacturer Nepia were able to seamlessly transform from one creature to the next. 

  2. Moving Images: Telstra // It’s How We Connect

    A quick stop-motion animation from Lucinda Schreiber using nothing but paper and a bit of creativity.

  3. Moving Images: Motorville by Patrick Jean

    April 5, 2013 by Erin Fletcher

    I’m not a fan of political work, but Motorville is a cleverly executed animated short from Patrick Jean. The short follows a being made from an American city on a quest to feed its body, which is made from streets, highways and freeways. The animation is so unlike anything I’ve seen. 

  4. Moving Images: Jazz That Nobody Asked For

    March 22, 2013 by Erin Fletcher

    Earworms, we’ve all had them and we’ve all been very frustrated by them. This great animation from Benny Box perfectly projects the extreme anger one may get from an earworm.  

  5. Moving Images: Childhood of a Circle

    March 8, 2013 by Erin Fletcher

    Childhood of a Circle is a heartwarming tale of a lonely creature rewarded by his curiosity from French animator Kadavre Exquis. I love he narration, it’s reminiscent of an outdated educational video from my childhood. 

  6. Moving Images: Revolution (Life Cycle of a Drop of Water)

    February 22, 2013 by Erin Fletcher

    I love this piece because it creatively incorporates movement through a book by combining complex pop-ups and clever animations. After a year in the making, the talents of paper engineer Helen Friel, photographer Chris Turner and animator Jess Deacon came together in this delightful tale following the life cycle of a single drop of water.

  8. Moving Images: Shift

    I imagine that this is what robots dream of. Perhaps an eletric sheep is hidden somewhere…

  9. Artist: Jenni Rope

    August 17, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Jenni Rope works in various mediums taking color and shapes inspired by man-built structures and nature to create abstract landscapes. And if you squint your eyes, your mind begins to develop the scene. Throughout her work the same shapes begin to appear as if characters themselves, escaping the canvas and showing up in her drawings, sculptures and animations. The hand of the artist is apparent throughout her work creating movement and texture.

    See what happens when Jenni’s shapes come to life in this great little animation title Kiipeilypuu/The Climbing Tree.

  10. Moving Images: Pilot Evolution

    August 5, 2012 by Jason Fletcher

    I love animations that directly involve the animators hand. And its not only used as an effect but a concise visual metaphor.
