I got a copy of this month’s STASH DVD, and wanted to pass along some of the notable work that was on it. Bran Dougherty-Johnson’s ‘pssst… pass it on’ was featured, but that was posted already. If you haven’t seen it, check it out.
First off, Hornet’s Peter Sluszka brings us these promos for the g4 channel for a show they have called ‘Midnight Spank’. Pretty funny stuff, and of course wonderfully animated. Drugs and toilets and alligators and sex and speedos, and… monkeys!
Pucca, an asian TV series that spawned from animated e-cards, star in these broadcast ID’s produced by studio b productions. They’s just cool, go watchem.
A company by the name of Le Pivot in Paris busts out this fine piece of animation for Honda. Quirky story, and of course, being that it is french, really awesome 3d and animation. What is it with those guys? I guess it’s advertising some new moped of some sort? I don’t really care, I just like watching the commercial.
And then there’s this little music video from the band Bell x1 for the song ‘Rocky took a lover’. A great mix of almost every technique there is. Illustration, 3d, stop motion, live action, puppetry. The company that did it is SSSR, a set of directors for passion pictures out of london, and apparently is ‘two norwegians and a japanese guy’. I particularly enjoyed the compositing. Felt unique.
