Went to a screening of Akira tonight at the LA Animation Festival. I’ve seen it a few times since I first watched it with my brother when I was 11, but have never gotten to see it on a big screen. Appreciation on an entirely new level. Fucking astounding. The effects animation alone will blow your mind.
Crazy to think this came out the year before the Little Mermaid. Imagining the tedium of working on an animated film in a pre-digital age makes me want to kill myself.
This Chipotle commercial is one of the most impressive and effective ads I’ve seen in a long time. A story about a farmer who grows his farm to irresponsible proportions. Directed by Johnny Kelly. Made by Clapham Studios.
Single shot. 50 foot set. All practical stop motion(!!!)
The cult animation showcase aired for three seasons on MTV during the early 90s. Following the end of its run in 1994, the show spawned several well-known spin-offs, including Beavis and Butt-head and Æon Flux.
