Video: Forget the uncanny valley and not-quite-perfect CG humans freaking you out, this title sequence for London's recent OFFF digital arts festival will make you so uncomfortable you'll want to burn your laptop. But at the same time the animation is so beautiful you might find yourself watching it two or three times instead.
If you're reading this, you've probably seen Don Hertzfeldt's World of Tomorrow and simply want to know if the sequel is good. Yes, it is. It's very, very good. And I highly recommend to go into it totally blank other than the knowledge of the first film.
Winston is named for the narrator of Aram Sarkisian's short, a desperate man dashing off a fevered letter that reads like a crazed diary entry. "I'm not losing my grasp again," he insists, as he weaves an increasingly paranoid tale about his neighbour -- a man he loathes and is obsessed with in equal measures.
Flashpoint is one of the most important stories in DC Comics' recent history. But bizarrely, it's also become one most popular Flash stories to crop up in other media. There's an animated film, it's been part of the CW TV show, and now, it's being set up as the story of the Flash movie. Here's what you need to know.
Video: SpongeBob SquarePants's original theme song and opening sequence are a big part of the show's long-lasting success. They're catchy, fun, and explain the basic premise of the show every episode while somehow managing not to become too annoying. The only thing that could make them better? An anime makeover.
Video: Most people think of rainy days as grey, but in Nicolás P. Villarreal's animated short Nieta, a little girl has exactly the opposite reaction. For her, gloomy weather brings delightful colour -- in splashes, sparkles and fanciful shapes. Watch until the end of this brief, simple but elegantly-made short to see why.
Video: In Julius Horsthuis' short film Recurrence, he takes the audience on a slow descent into a sprawling metropolis he's created. But as you get closer and closer to the city, and try to make out details such as houses and skyscrapers, you start to realise that those tiny details only reveal more of the same, and that your descent is never going to end.
Imagine if Marvel's Thanos and DC's Darkseid had a baby, and then that baby hooked up with another giant, evil space demon thing and had another baby. That baby, according to Rick and Morty director Bryan Newton, would be the show's newest big bad, Worldender, who went toe to toe with the Vindicators last night.
Video: High school is that boring stepping stone in life between primary school (when you have recess twice a day) and university (where you can skip class without getting in trouble). But wouldn't getting your RoSA be far more enjoyable if the minimalist covers on your textbooks were turned into trippy animations you could stare at through every class?
Video: In Ashley Anderson and Jacob Mann's animated short, Extinguished, love is represented literally -- as a flame right where a person's heart beats in his or her chest. A dejected young man's fire goes out, until a pretty new neighbour moves in. Can he play it cool or will his, ah, burning attraction get the better of him?
