Speaking of art…

October 16, 2007

I’m a huge fan of CGI type cartoons if they’re well made. My current fave which I found on Youtube is called “Minuscule.” It’s one of the cuter and better put together CGI cartoons I’ve seen combining real film with computer created creatures.

All the creatures in the short films are insects. The stories take a photograph out of an insect’s day and show what it might be like to be a spider, centipede or other creepy crawlie. The stories are told w/o much more than mood music, background sounds and some minor enhanced “sounds” from the critters themselves. Most of the instances tend to be rather ironic or a kind of “ah ha!” sort of moment when you get to the end.

One of my current faves for this series can be found here.

I also have a playlist of these as I find them on Youtube bookmarked under my userprofile there. I have a great many playlists of all sorts. Check out the playlists marked “Robot Carnival” and “Minna no Uta” if you like Anime. I especially like “starlight angel” from Robot Carnival and “Uchuhikoushino Uta (the astronaut’s song)” from Minna no Uta.

I guess that’s all for now. Check out my links for more stuff as I find it.
