Guilherme Marcondes: Tyger

Inspired by William Blake’s “The Tyger,” Guilherme Marcondes’ new short film, “Tyger,” is a truly wild trip (yes, that pun was intended). A pastiche of puppetry and various animation styles, “Tyger” moves lockstep with its thunderous, tribal soundtrack and weaves a strange, dreamlike narrative that feels a little omninous, a little foreboding.

By the way, Guilherme has updated his site with some new work. (Well, the work isn’t that new, but the fact that he posted them on his site is.)

    I was just about to submit this link.
    A very impressive accomplishment. Varied as the elements are, it really comes together as a whole.

  • For some reason, this post disappeared for a while. I had to bring it back from the dead. Very disconcerting.

    People are having fun ripping off this black costume puppeteer that we saw originally in this japanese ping-pong show. Since then this idea has been in several spots (one more popular, shynola’s beck video). What’s the point?
    I don’t think this clip is that good. and it lacks in animation too. But i’ve seen worse.

    Hey Mark, Can i please see your invention for a new animation style. Are you using keyframes (other people have done that). Are you using stop-motion? (hack, been done before). How about puppets? (idiot -so 1600’s). The story is great, the look is great, the animation is great….you….are a dushbag!

    This is one of the greatest things I’ve seen in a long time. I am truly pumped.

    While not the most tactful comment, your point is solid.

    The black puppeteers were left in the japanese ping pong for logistical reasons. Here I think the intent is different, probably something to do with man’s interdependency with animal or something cerebral that the director intended; just as shinola probably had their own reasons. But congrats on connecting the dots and getting the comments started.
