Wow, amazing AMAZING stuff by Michel Gagné (some animation in Ratatouille and ALl Dogs Go to Heaven) in Sensology – shortlisted in the list of 10 animated shorts for the Oscar. It needs to be between the nominees.

And if it wins? Woah, does that mean the gap between animation and motion graphics will be even more blurred? Up until now, I haven’t seen any “motion graphic” piece win. They nominated I Met the Walrus, but it lost. I think that’s the closest nominee I’ve seen that looks more like a motion graphic piece, than an animated short.

Always amazing animation stuff coming from Canada, and no – I’m not being biased ;P

Wow, pretty good, and a much better balance between music video/music than M.I.A’s Born Free.

You know? I prefer Arcade Fire music with music videos. I’ve never been able to just listen to an Arcade Fire album, I always have to be doing something else. Their music videos make me appreciate their music much more.

This video for The Suburbs is directed by Spike Jonze, and there will be a short film release… apparently. But we’re going to have to wait for December 20th for that one. Looks pretty promising. Beautiful sad.

G asked me about Ga-In — sorry, only in Spanish — and wondered if she was my favorite Brown Eyed Girl member. And yes, yes she is indeed. Though I didn’t love or adored her EP debut, it was very interesting to me in terms of style. It sounded very Argentina. To sum it all up, the music video is also very passionate Tango.

First of all, Ga-In seems to be enjoying all the body groping. I suspect it started with Abracadabra. LOL Plus she goes all “Music-Vid Turned Short Film” on us with a running time of over 10min. that includes tragic love, tears, face-scratching, dramatic walking away while the girl gropes your leg (very Latin passion, btw), suicide attempts, and some pop version of Tango dancing (Tanging?) in the desert.

I’m gonna actually show the video to my mom and dad — who also enjoy Kpop, btw. My mom likes to point out that Korean girl groups have better legs than Japanese girl groups. LOL She’s picky with the Asian chicken legs xD or how my friend calls them – the drumsticks. LOL

Anyway, I’d like to know what they think about this parrilla argentina.

In case you missed it, you can still vote for APRICOT at the Vimeo Festival for Best Narrative. It goes against Nuit Blanche, as well as The Raven by Peruvian director Ricardo de Montreuil (Mujer de mi Hermano, Mancora).

old school video game graphics go against 3d!

oh, those graphics bring back so many memories xD
