Animated clip by Andy Rementer, made for the 2010 Virgin London Marathon. I always enjoy this guy. Especially love the broccoli pits. And speaking of Mr. Rementer, if you haven’t gotten into Techno Tuesday, you totally should. Some of the most on point (and, er, slightly depressing) commentary on digital living I’ve seen, regardless of medium, period. (via Creative Review)

I’m not sure if I’m a fan of AOL’s new “Aol.” rebrand (the period is offputting) but these new “reveal films” by Universal Everything are truly stunning. The animation is by Field.io, who are also responsible for these amazing clips which I linked to a while ago. The sound design is by Simon Pyke, who it turns out I already know as Freeform. I think I
like love the music in these clips better than anything I’ve heard from him as Freeform — where can I get an album of this stuff?

Animation by Steve Finkin, as shown on Sesame Street
…and I love this.
“The Yo-Yo Master & Lost Kid” by Imagination Inc., as shown on Sesame Street
Oh man, that image of the guy sucking himself into his yoyo was definitely lodged somewhere deep in my brain. Many more fantastic examples of Sesame Street’s brilliance at the link below.
First airing in 1969, Sesame Street was an innovation in educational television. In addition to producing its own live action sequences, the show reached into the worlds of film and animation and commissioned work from studios such as Jeff Hale’s Imagination, Inc., John and Faith Hubley’s Storyboard Films, and Jim Simon’s Wantu Enterprises. The program also pioneered the use of early computer graphics from the Scanimate analog computer courtesy of Dolphin Productions in New York City. All of these elements combined to create some of the most adventurous and artistic children’s programming ever shown on television.

Here’s the trailer for Wes Anderson’s The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Not sure what to think on this one. Could be good, could be not. I do like me some stop-motion, so it has that going for it. Oh, and George Clooney playing a fantastic fox, which may just be the role he was born to play. That guy is a force. (via Elastic Hrtr)

Bang-yao Liu, Deadline
Now that is some very clever post-it usage. Also reminds me how much I enjoy this song (by Röyksopp).
