Built around the holes in the iPhone 5c cases, these fun animations are as much about great sound design as they are about clever design and animation.

Amazing student work continues to pour out of French animation schools – this time from EMCA.
(Above) Juliette Oberndorfer creates an entrancing, enigmatic story in her grad film, LUX¬†(check out her blog and portfolio for more imagery) – but this otherwordly, cyclical transit is really heightened by the clever sound design of N’gouda¬†Prince¬†Ba, who previously composed the ethereal setting for¬†OBEN¬†earlier this year (below).
Aside from the fact that these stand alone as impressive visual and conceptual works, my real interest here was the emotional gravity created in both by this sole sound designer. ¬† N’gouda¬†Prince was kind enough to elaborate on his contributions to these works, his background, and expanding portfolio:
No doubt it will be a success! ¬†We look forward to future work from N’Gouda Prince Ba and the students/grads of EMCA.
Melbourne-based audio designer & deep sea diver John Kassab has been making a subtle but sound statement through a handful of featured Motionographer articles, notably: Callum Cooper’s Full Circle, Shaun Tan’s The Lost Thing (exerpt + interview), and of course, Kadavre Exquis’ recently released piece above (among others).
As the sculptors of all things aurally beautiful, sound designers are not often given their proper due, so be sure to lend an ear to John & all the other artists here who routinely tickle our cochlea.
Additionally, Exquis’ fine work showcased above definitely deserves a hand – specifically, the backgrounds are just killer.¬† View landscape set 1 / set 2 + check out more behind-the-scenes work in his Secret Files. Kadavre is also a musician, and you can pick up the retro-inspired Childhood of a Circle original soundtrack here.
UPDATE: John Kassab provided us a discussion in which he extends some great insight into his processes, perceptions of the field, finishing work in the digital age, and the beauty of the imperfect.¬† Read more after the jump.
