Daniel Savage & Wondersauce: Yule Log 2.0

Yule Log 2.0 re-imagines the traditional Yule Log through a collection of 53 short films by illustrators, animators, directors, and creative coders. First televised in 1966 by WPIX-TV as a gift to viewers, the Log has since burned itself into our hearts.

Late Night Work Club

Here comes Late Night Work Club! LNWC is a collective of indie animators. That is, animators who do independent, non-commercial work. Or, in some cases, animators who do commercial work, but are also up to the wee hours of the night making non-commercial rock your socks off work. Scott Benson has more info and images on his blog. Stellar lineup below.

Late Night Work Club is Scott Benson, Charles Huettner, Eimhin McNamara, Eammon O’neill, Caleb Wood, Sean Buckelew, Dave Prosser, Jake Armstrong, Erin Kilkenny, Alexx Grigg, Daniella Orsini, Christen Bach, Conor Finnegan, Louise Bagnall, Ciaran Duffy, and Andy Rohrmann (aka Scientific American).

James Curran: The Adventures of Tintin, Unofficial Title Sequence

We’re huge fans of self-initiated personal projects, and were delighted by James Curran’s fantastic unofficial title sequence for The Adventures of Tintin. Spielberg take note!

James was kind enough to take some time out of his schedule for an interview. Learn more about the piece here.

Impactist: Plants and Animals EP Promos

Promo for “East (Original Sketch)”

We love seeing self-initiated personal projects, so it’s a thrill to see another round of short, sweet, imaginative promos from Portland duo Impactist. Each of the shorts for their Plants and Animals EP plays with a different visual style.

You can’t help but imagine that they had a lot of fun making these. Watch all four after the jump!

Andrew S. Allen: The Thomas Beale Cipher

There’s a lot of striking moments in Andrew S. Allen‘s “The Thomas Beale Cipher“. I love the re-purposed textures (herringbone fabric and washed-out wood), the grainy whisps of wrapping light, and the clever mix of rotoscoped footage with abstract design.

For more of his work, check out the 2010 Anchorage International Film Festival Opener. No collage here, but the high contrast, punchy colors and moody compositions will be familiar.

Found at the excellent Short of the Week as part of their new “Short of the Week Presents‚ÄĚ program, which plans to feature short films that have never been online before and help to coordinate their digital launch. Bravo!
