Not only is China conquering Olympic gold, but apparently animation school over there is taking huge leaps compared to what actually was/is — Legend of a Rabbit, I’m looking at you [1].

Until I ran into this link to YinYueTai on Weibo.

Here comes Zhang Zhe (张喆) — I can tell these Mandarin classes are paying off — whose animation, titled Paper War (纸片战记), is of the mixed media kind and took 9-freaking-months to make at The Animation and Digital Arts School of the Communication University of China (中国传媒大学).

You can check some posts on Peruvian animation~

I found this… seems to be pretty old considering this YouTube upload, but the animation style is still nifty. The Vimeo version doesn’t have a logo and is much MUCH crisper. I don’t know who did the animation though.

I don’t think I’ve been this excited about an animated short for a while~~~ it’s got great style, flow, pizzazz — great for those who love animation, those who love Star Wars… and it’s also very relatable for those people who are familiar with riding on a subway (or any public transportation!).

This short animation, besides being super entertaining with its stylish violence, it’s also part PSA~ teaching you to always give your seat to the elderly!

I’m trying out a new type of posting.

I found this commercial for Rede Telecine [1], a 2min. short done by Rio de Janeiro-based animation studio BEELD.motion for the campaign Vá ao Cinema (Go to the Cinema).

Titled O Homem que Nunca Tinha Ido ao Cinema (The Man Who Had Never Been to the Cinema), the short tells the story of a bitter man who dreads movie theaters because he doesn’t understand them… until he does.

Who remembers those days when you were in class not paying attention, doodling on your notebook?
