Created by the talented peeps at Monkey Tennis Animation Studio, these two unlikely colleagues, a cat and fish, are sitting in the office frustrated by software that keeps crashing. Only a strong cup of coffee can possibly help now…

Tilt Brush is an exciting new application by Google that uses virtual reality to paint in 3D. This combination of art and technology allows you to create paintings in a three dimensional environment, through brushes of course, using unlikely materials such as fire, stars, or snowflakes – below is a great demo vid featuring street artists Faith47 and Tristan Eaton trying it out. The new Tilt Brush app is currently available for the HTC Vive headset. This is so very awesome!! 🙂
Brooklyn NY filmmaker, animator, and musician, Andy Kennedy imagines what your nights look like while you’re dreaming (or having nightmares) with his surreal and mesmerising animated short film ‘Slow Wave’. Awesome stuff! 🙂
The Wizard of Oz and Age of Ultron Mashup: We LOVE this short video by Australian visual effects artist Darren Wallace, who has put together this awesome The Wizard of Oz and Age of Ultron Mashup. It’s a must-watch – so clever!
Vivid Sydney 2015: We love the Sydney Opera House‘s contribution to VIVID Sydney 2015 which is a global animation project by Universal Everything, collaborating with over 20 different animation studios worldwide to create a living mural on one of the world’s most iconic buildings. Embracing emerging technologies, Universal Everything’s process always starts from drawings, with techniques seen in this film akin to the early pioneers of animation including Len Lye, Norman McLaren and Walt Disney. Using these timeless techniques mean this film could have existed in 1920, albeit with a 21st century twist – bringing influences of global pop culture, modernist graphics and physics simulations into a playful exploration of this Sydney icon. Awesome work! 🙂
Guillaume Kurkdjian: We love this awesome selection of retro animated GIFs by French animator and illustrator Guillaume Kurkdjian, who via his ‘Electronic Items’ series, pays tribute to iconic electronic devices from the 90s including the dot matrix printer, remote control car and handycam through to the fax machine and portable CD player. For more of Guillaume Kurkdjian’s work, pay a visit to his website. Fantastic stuff!
Bubbles Erotica: Very cool human figures, rendered as polygonal 3D graphics, morph and fly through a surreal futuristic world in this tripped out original music video for ‘Super Unnatural’ by Bubbles Erotica. This amazing video was created by very talented artist and animator Ali Manesh from 3E Visuals who specialise in animation and projection mapping creating the concept, design, animation, compositing, and smoke simulation that you will see. Hailing from Chicago, USA, Bubbles Erotica are a driven, passionate and charismatic 4-piece hard rock band who have set out to develop an eclectic blend of rock and roll, unleashing a few weapons within their arsenal: fuzz distortion, war-beat drum patterns, granitic riffs and powerful vocals. Bubbles Erotica strikes with a sonic assault that offers a great compromise between energy and melody with band members made up of Brad Springer (drums), Michael Hasso (guitar), Colin Stone (bass), Philip Edward (vocals). They note their influences include Queens Of The Stone Age, Muse, Queen, Rush, Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Misfits, Tool, Johnny Cash, and System of a Down and ‘Super Unnatural’ is off their debut EP ‘Elephants Never Forget’ which was released in June 2014. Check it out – this video is a must-watch visual feast!
