1. Major Animation Exhibit ‘Watch Me Move’ Headed to Nashville

Any exhibition that “…aims to demonstrate the centrality of animation to contemporary global culture…” is worth our attention, and the UK's Barbican Centre-produced “Watch Me Move: The Animation Show” has been doing that at museum venues since 2011. This June, it comes to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville.

2. India’s First 3D Motion-Capture Film Looks Like An Epic Trainwreck

India's first 3-D mo-cap CGI feature, "Kochadaiiyaan," will open on May 9th. By Western feature animation quality standards, it looks unwatchable, but perhaps it's considered acceptable in India.

4. A Filmmaker Tests Out The NFB’s $1 Animation App, StopMo Studio

The NFB StopMo Studio app for the iPad provides essentially everything you need to jump into creating an animated film. You won't have any issues getting comfortable with the user interface if you've worked with animation programs before, and it seems more than approachable for newcomers young and old. Once you open up the program, you're welcomed with a short and succinct tutorial that covers the basic tools, and then opens up to allow you to explore the rest of the options available.

5. ‘Sumo’ by Laurene Braibant

Two bodies, giants almost naked, advance slowly to a circle of clay. This graphic experience features the expressiveness of their bodies which are to repeat a sumo ritual. The two wrestlers are fighting in a lightning way through each of their deeds, which are the direct expression of their most exposed being.

7. Book Review: ‘Stray Dog of Anime: The Films of Mamoru Oshii’

I can remember looking at anime titles in British video catalogues back in the nineties; as the pastoral fantasies of Hayao Miyazaki would not reach prominence in this country until the new millennium, UK distributors placed a strong emphasis on futuristic thrillers. The films of Mamoru Oshii certainly fit that bill.

11. A Major Stop Motion Exhibit in Barcelona Explores Starewitch, Švankmajer and Brothers Quay

“Animated cinema is the demiurgic art par excellence: matter comes to life and is transformed in the hands and imaginations of the creators. They, more than anybody, know about the secret life of objects.” This description, comes from the exhibition “Metamorphosis: Fantasy Visions in Starewitch, Švankmajer and the Quay Brothers,” now playing at the Centre de Cultura Contemporanea (CCCB) in Barcelona, Spain, and it's a good summary of the work of these four visionary animators.

12. Can You Identify These Legendary Animators?

Tonight, just for fun, I posted a series of photos of legendary animators from the Golden Age of theatrical animation. We owe them a great deal. Without the pioneering efforts of these artists (and hundreds of others like them), animation would not be nearly so advanced as it is today. How many of these animators can you identify? You can click through to Instagram for the identifications.

13. Artist of the Day: Joan Casaramona

Barcelona, Spain-based Joan Casaramona draws and sketches with pencil, applies digital techniques to animated stamped images, designs graphics, and generally produces all kinds of visual work. Casaramona shares his sketches and free form sketchbook pages. Below is one of Casaramona’s animated experiments, and after that is two sketchbook pages that were multiplied together in different colors to create a chaotic effect. Some of the themes of Casaramona’s illustration projects include Picasso and Napoleon. See more work from Joan Casaramona on his blog, Flickr, and Tumblr, which has a lot of work categorized for browsing by type.
