Opposites Attract

A Paula Abdul music video? Damn straight, because it's from the 80's and the 80's were awesome. Why? Because they had music videos like this. Some really nice choreographed animated dancing.

Animated by members of the Disney Animation team, led under the direction of Chris Bailey (who animated on The Lion King, Hercules, The Little Mermaid)

The Saga of Biorn

Great short film from The Animation Workshop entitled "The Saga of Biorn". Great style and anything that has vikings in it is cool in my books.

Gobelins 2011 - Jazzin'

The insane amount of talent that comes out of the french animation school "Gobelins, l'école de l'image" every year is amazing to watch. This years selection of shorts for the Annecy Animation Festival, once again showcases why Gobelins is one of the best animation schools in the world. If I had to pick my favourite of the shorts, it would be "Jazzin".  

Hope you enjoy!

Sometimes the Stars

Music video time! "Sometimes the Stars" by Adelaide band "The Audreys" and directed by Ari Gibson and Jason Pamment. I really enjoy the visual style of this music video, fits perfectly with the style and mood of the music. It's being shown at the Annecy Animation festival in France!
