laptop wars

I don't get the title. Claymation or Halogram? It seems pretty clear this is an ad either way and done well. Also, I can't wait for the new macbook pro's to come out. My brother has been eyeing the 13" entry level one for a while.

Who doesn't love the beatles? This is a great animation, I hope the game is as fun though. Found it on Gizmodo.

make a choice to tune in

here's a very cool 2009 PSA for United Way Romania entitled "Choices" combining both cut-out and digital animation to a very pleasing aesthetic. the collaborative ":weareom:" including director Anton Groves and art directors Damian Groves and Richard Hardy with illustration by Sinboy created this one.

::weareom:: also created this wonderful Lego spot for Alpha Bank not too long ago.

also, this past week was the end of the year animation screening for UCLA MFA Students (as well as a few undergraduates of varied disciplines). this one by Aglaia Mortcheva was definitely one of my favorites. its style is very similar to Amy Winfrey's, so its no surprise to see her name on the special thanks at the end of the credits (Aglaia is also the voice of Vendetta on Winfrey's upcoming "Making Fiends" show at Nickelodeon).
