A visual feast from French animation studio Chez Eddy. Really great animation with so many beautifully rendered scenes. This tribute film tells the story of an Art thief who get his kicks from absorbing the masters he pilfers ending in a surreal twist of sorts.
Really great short stop-motion animation directed by Irish film-maker Johnny Kelly and produced by Nexus Productions. The film was commissioned by Chipotle Mexican Grill and depicts the life of a farmer as he slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the errors of his ways and opting for a more sustainable future.
“The pace and timeline of the film is captured beautifully in camera using traditional stop frame model animation techniques to track the life of a farmer. Filmed in one sweeping take the film was painstakingly animated over 4-weeks on one large all-encompassing model background.”
Watch the animation and the behind the scenes video below to see the whole process over the 4 weeks of making. You can find more films by Johnny Kelly here. The song is ‘The Scientist’ by Coldplay performed by Willie Nelson and is available here on iTunes.
