Student project by Maximov. Pretty frickin’ nice.
From the film PressPausePlay, “A film about hope, fear and digital culture”, and showing the bit where Seth Godin talks about how to spread an idea.

Nice. So much work going on out there that I’ll never see. Showreels make for a nice nibble.
Explanation from Adam Voorhes
For this project I collaborated with illustrator Will Bryant to create a stop motion animation for Bluetooth’s publication ‘Signature.’ We incorporated the cover copy and the logo into the illustration and filled the cover with Will’s signature style. I love seeing a cover done organically, let alone being able to display it as an animation!
Presidents. They’re just like you and me. Well, like you maybe. I can’t say as I’ve ever used the word ‘bunghole’.
In 1964, Lyndon Johnson needed pants, so he called the Haggar clothing company and asked for some. The call was recorded (like all White House calls at the time), and has since become the stuff of legend. Johnson’s anatomically specific directions to Mr. Haggar are some of the most intimate words we’ve ever heard from the mouth of a President.
We at Put This On took the historic original audio and gave it to animator Tawd Dorenfeld, who created this majestic fantasia of bungholiana.
Enjoy this special treat from Put This On: LBJ Orders Pants. Then share it with a friend who loves pants.
Lovely. The end. (That’s the kind of quality commentary I bring to blogging.)
Jonathan Coulton is responsible for a key element of one of my favorite games – the song “Still Alive” at the end of Portal. He is the nerd song king. This song is “a triumph, huge success” also!
Really awesome typography animation brings this song to a whole new level of awesomeness. (The maps sequence is super clutch) Kudos to Jarrett on what he says (in the YT comments) is his first animation project!

Sean Christensen brings a simple memory to life. Makes me think of all the dumb, violent stuff I’ve done with my brother on the farm and what nice little films they’d make. I’m surprised we’re both still alive.

Nice work. And good writing always sounds better when read aloud.
Ah, Cyriak. I doth love thee. My favorite part is where they grow out of the ground. Oh yes, it is totally some “surreal bovine choreography”.
