THINK THUNK | Drawing + Music Animation

The drawing program that I use automatically records my strokes and spits out a time-lapse video at the end. My composer friend asked me to do a drawing set to one of his songs. So I came up with different line styles and onomatopoeic words to represent the different movements in the song, and roughly timed out my blocks of drawing activity so that we'd be able to (somewhat) sync up the resulting video with the music. More of my drawings here. More of my friend's music here.

Find out what's #TRENTing from a brash cartoon character

Short comedy video series: Trent is a sort of Max Headroom for the social media era — but only sort of. He lives inside the matrix, telling you what's #TRENTing, in a brash style — mixing a Scandinavian accent with a Brooklyn attitude. In this episode, Trent weighs in on the Ghost in the Shell controversy, the Vice President's rule about dining alone with women, and your search history being up for sale. WARNING: "Mature" language.

Nebula One, a cartoon set in space

I've created a fun and hopefully good-looking new animated series set in space. There are three short episodes, and they're all in one video. Later episodes — assuming I'll have the time and inclination to keep going — will reveal that the mission for these astronauts is establishing a sports franchise in space, for television. But for now, dodging space rocks and worrying about avatars takes up most of their time. Enjoy! [more inside]

Is the Future Already Set?

We think the past is immutable and the future is yet to be written. But is that an illusion? Einstein's special relativity suggests that it is, as I explain in this short animated video produced in collaboration with BBC Earth.
Also featuring: space invaders! 🚀🚀🚀
First in a new series. [more inside]

Trailer for Ginevra

I have finished my first project using the multi-plane animation stand I built this Fall. The trailer for the short film Ginevra is now online. Based on Percy Shelley's poem "The Dirge", Ginevra depicts the aftermath of the murder of a young woman. As her distraught mother looks on, she learns that life after death involves a transition she never could have imagined. [more inside]

Girl With Pearl Earring

I worked on a video for Ted Ed, the educational branch of TED Talks. It’s about the Dutch Renaissance painter Jan Vermeer, and specifically, his painting The Girl with a Pearl Earring. It was created with frame by frame animation under the camera, some paint on glass animation, some Photoshop animation, and a lot of After Effects compositing. This blog post has a link to the video, stills, and behind the scenes shots.

I built a multi-plane animation stand

I’m really happy to finally finish a new multi-plane animation stand set up after two weeks of building, visiting hard ware stores, hunting for fabric and transporting heavy glass in a suitcase by bus. Link includes a time lapse video showing the building process, followed by detail shots with more information and a test shot inspired by Blade Runner.

Oh My

I am very happy to announce that the music video I was slaving away over in February and March has just come out! Made for The Animators, out of Melbourne, it features a chase through the snow, some magical realism, a very cute animal, and a whole lot of painted plastic cut-outs. I have some stills and 'making of' pictures on my blog.

Loop GIF inspired by The Shining

This animated GIF was created for the Loopdeloop competition, based in Australia. Each month there is a different theme, and this month’s was….sisters. I immediately thought of two sisters and two hotels: the twins from The Shining, perhaps the most sinister sisters of all, who live in the movie’s Overlook Hotel, but also the Hotel Budapest, shaped like a cylinder and with more than a little Overlook-creepiness to it.

Brown's Review of Star Wars and Stuff

Brown's Review began as a way to avoid posting excessively long comments in Fanfare, but very quickly became a site where I reviewed episodes of shows (Avatar and Star Wars). It then expanded to include short essays and thoughts on Star Wars, as well as book and comic book reviews, too. [more inside]

animation marathon segment

A few months ago I took part in an animation marathon as part of the Fete de L’Anim in Lille and Tourcoing. Myself and two classmates from St Joost created 10 seconds of animation in two days. It was super fun and you can watch our segment here, and the whole compilation here. Our little clip and its companions are playing at this year’s Annecy Off, an alternative festival in Annecy dedicated to young filmmakers.

Sixty Seconds of Salary

An animated data visualization I designed in association with CNNMoney went live this morning. It shows and compares salaries for different people (Kobe Bryant, ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, a minimum wage worker, a physician, etc), accumulating in real-time for 1 minute. Watch the disparity grow second by second!

Trolley Problem

A runaway trolley will run over five people. You have a chance to stop the trolley by shoving a fat man in its path. If your first question is not, "is it morally right to do so?" but "how fat does a man need to be to stop a trolley?" this short animation will examine these concerns. [more inside]

BUNK - a rock video for Nardwuar + the Evaporators

BUNK is a rock-video I recently directed, produced and helped animate for a fellow known as Nardwuar The Human Serviette (who the world really should have heard of by now). His band is called the Evaporators and their sound is best thought of as Ramones-ish old-school punk by way of Saturday morning cartoons ... hence the old-school cut + paste non-digital (for the most part) animation.

Animated Jimfs

Over the summer I picked up a 35mm camera that takes four images in sequence on a single frame. Naturally, the next step was turning the best (or at least the most interesting) of those images into very brief, rather rough, animated gifs. I publish these gifs on my blog, Animated Jimfs.

94 Elements - Our lives through the lens of the elements

94 Elements is a global filmmaking project based around the 94 naturally occurring elements, from Hydrogen to Plutonium. Award-winning and upcoming filmmakers each take one element as the basis for a human story around how it's used - watch the 2 minute trailer here and you can see the first film now on the project website. There are opportunities for upcoming filmmakers to win commissions to make new films for the project, such as this pitch at the Sheffield DocFest in June, and we've got great plans for some really interesting data-vis work around how we use our resources.

Whale Story

A fisherman experiences a moment of connection with a female humpback whale in the waters off of San Francisco. Is this an example of inter-species communication or a mysterious fluke? This true story, originally reported by RadioLab is retold in paint on a 16 foot high wall with the help of the passing public in Seattle's Cal Anderson Park.
