Watch More Cute Monster Animation Drawings Get Inserted Into Daily Life

I just love the fake cartoon reality that augmented reality artist Marty Cooper creates within our world because his character drawings pack so much personality that I just want them to be real. Here he is with part three in his Aug(de)mented Reality series, which splices crazy cute monster drawings into normal situations of real life.


Awesome Short Film Shows Star Wars from The Empire's Perspective

Watch this. Now. TIE Fighter is a short animation by Paul Johnson that shows a bit of Star Wars from the perspective of the Empire. It’s done in the style of anime from the ’80s and shows an aerial fight scene between TIE fighters and X-wings. It’s so awesome that Disney should make this an entire movie.


Up reimagined As A Horror Movie Works Surprisingly Well

The story of Up works well because it’s heartwarming to see an odd couple go on an adventure together in a flying house and run into squirrel-addicted dogs. This alternate horror story version of Up also works because it’s easy to imagine Carl Fredericksen as an evil monster who takes Russell as his prisoner.


Map Shows The Location Of Popular Animated Movies Across The World

Though most of the real world lives in China and India and other parts of Asia, the fake animated world is almost exclusively set in the USA and Europe. Obviously, that’s because many popular animation movies are made by Western shops for Western audiences, but, hey, can the rest of the world get some animated love?


Hell Is This Explosion Of Endless Emoji

If you have a love/hate relationship with emoji (or just hate), this 3D animation test by digital artist Alberto Moss might make you feel… happy? anxious? I don’t know, but there’s probably an emoji to describe it.


Scientifically Accurate Pinky & The Brain reveals The Cruel Hidden Truth

Video: In following Pinky and the Brain’s hilariously cursed cartoon quest to take over the world, we kids get to see a story about the classic odd couple and the funny hijinks they run into. What we don’t see is the truth that adults wilfully ignore: that lab rats live a miserable life and would totally want to rule the world to punish us.


These Kinetic Sculptures Are Like Beautiful Nightmares

These mesmerising gifs are, quite literally, the stuff of nightmares. Strange, lovely nightmares.


The Posable Figures On This Spinning Zoetrope Make Anyone An Animator

It takes a tremendous amount of patience to create an entire film using stop-motion animation techniques, but this simple spinning zoetrope toy makes the process a whole lot easier. You’ll only end up with about a second of animation after posing all ten of the bendable figures, but the results are still really satisfying given how much work is still needed to create every individual pose.


Animation Recreated Frame By Frame In Real Life With 3D Printing 

This clever art installation shows a CGI animation that’s been converted into a real life frame-by-frame depiction of the animation with 3D printing. As in, the artists took the digital animation they had in a video and showed what every frame would look like (all at once) with actual figures. It gets pretty trippy.


Game Of Thrones Animated In Crude And Foul Animations Is So Much Fun

Game of Thrones is a beautiful show to watch, because the world is so interesting, the characters are so twisted, the story is so screwed up, the sets are so picturesque and the special effects are so well done. But strip all of that away and use crude animations to replace all that and somehow, it’s still a fun show to watch.
