The music video is still thriving in the Internet age, despite the fact that MTV and VH1 have long given up their role as purveyors of the medium. For proof, check out the new video for local favorites The Sea and Cake's latest single "On and On", off their most recent Thrill Jockey release, Runner.


The band enlisted Japanese artist Naomi Nagata to create a stop-motion animation using lines and patterns made with sand on a Japanese paper scroll, resulting in a visual experience not unlike watching the waveform generator in your iTunes library.

Ottawa International Animation Festival: Pixar's tiny, perfect films - Ottawa Citizen

Ottawa International Animation Festival: Pixar's tiny, perfect films - Ottawa Citizen | Animation news | Scoop.it

Pixar has become synonymous with success in animated film. From Toy Story 1, 2 and 3, to The Incredibles to Up, and many films in between, the studio has captured audiences and awards galore.


But there is a tiny perfect aspect of Pixar’s success that may be ignored in the rush to see the big films, if the viewer isn’t careful enough.


These are the animated shorts that often accompany a Pixar release.


The first, and still memorable, featured a small lamp with endless curiosity. It was the brainchild of John Lasseter, the man behind Pixar, and the simplicity, the humanity of that little light remains palpable.


The creator of the latest short will be at the Ottawa International Animation Festival Sunday, Sept. 25. First-time director and creator Mark Walsh, a self-described 37-year-old nerd, will be on hand to talk about animation and Pixar and the process of building a successful film.

365 Day Stop Motion with Whiteboard

365 Day Stop Motion with Whiteboard | Animation news | Scoop.it
This creative stop-motion video was created over the course of one year by a boy named Kristen (unbeatableme on YouTube). He took at least one photograph every day for 365 days showing himself standing in front of a whiteboard. By changing elements inside the shot (e.g. his clothing, the art on the whiteboard, his hair), Kristen made one of the most “time-consuming” animation projects we’ve seen.
