Roger Ebert recently tweeted a link to this Japanese anime video with the comment, “I don’t know WTF it all means, but thumbs up to this brilliant short anime”. I also have no idea what’s happening in this video, but it’s definitely kinda cool:
Meet Dot, probably the tiniest heroine you’ve ever seen. This stop-motion video was shot using Cellscope, a high-quality microscope that attaches to a cellphone camera. The amount of patience and meticulousness that was needed to create this is truly mindblowing.
And just to drive home how impressive this is, here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the production:
French music producer Breakbot’s latest single “Baby I’m Yours” has a stunning video directed by Irina Dakeva. It’s made up of over 2000 dreamy watercolor paintings…and the song is pretty good too. Enjoy:
Artist Michel Gagne took the live improvised performance of two avant-guarde jazz musicians and visualized it into an abstract animation. The hand-drawn film, “Sensology”, took over 4 years to create, and is creating buzz in the animation world after premiering a few weeks ago. Enjoy:

If the phrase “Finish Him” means anything to you, you’ll love this paper stop-motion video of ‘Mortal Kombat’ brutal fatality moves. I almost forgot what a tease Sonya was…she blows you a sweet looking kiss which ends up setting you on fire and burning you to a deadly crisp. As if my fellow geeky gamers didn’t have a tough enough time with the ladies.
We’ve seen Blu’s work here before…he’s known for impressive large-scale animations that often take weeks to complete. His incredible new video is called “Big Bang Big Boom”, which he describes as “an unscientific point of view on the beginning and evolution of life…and how it could probably end.”
