Is there a better way of showing a text message in a film? How about the internet? Even though we’re well into the digital age, film is still ineffective at depicting the world we live in. Maybe the solution lies not in content, but in form.

Here are three short films that take place on your desktop

NEAT NEAT NEAT NEAT!! Watch this. I wrote my thesis on the relationship between the internet and physical space and my views on it have evolved dramatically since then, but investigating how it is portrayed in film is such a cool way of analyzing it. Still much work to be done…I can’t wait to watch the first movie that takes place entirely on the internet.

animation designs from back in the calarts’dayz
Anonymous said: Hello! I'm sorry if this seems like an odd question, but how is that you animate so quickly? I suppose I'm referring more so to your little gifs as opposed to a film project -- I mean, despite them being little gifs, the animation in them is always pretty fleshed out, and colored, even! Ahh! Is there more to it than loosening up your drawings and practice?
Hmm… I just kinda draw fast, really. And definitely I’ve gotten waaaaaay faster as I learn and improve at animation and posing/timing choices become more second nature to me.
Although I will say that even my most simple gifs (like the tails one or star fox one) still take me at least 2 hours for a hundred or so frame colored animation on 2s. With my really quick animations I usually don’t even thumbnail anything and just keep everything pretty rough, but usually my process for lineless animation is:
Inbetweens (and color- this is two steps)
and then my lines, backgrounds, shading, clean-up, and compositing
For animation WITH lineart I usually line all my thumbnails and in-between from there, then color. But especially with faster animation my lines are pretty rough!
Hope that helps?
