Three Little Pigs – Green Jelly

I’m an old-school metal-head and grew up on Sabbath, Zepp, Rush, and the like, and this tune is right there. That it is an adult satire of a children’s tale by a band that can laugh at itself turns it up to 11.

Rocketh on, verily.


Free To Roam – Giangrande

Animation General

A blend of different animation styles, quick patter, and a broken 4th wall make this short great – unless you’re a 3D animation student.

In a hospital for animated characters, a classic 2d doctor and a clay animation nurse must operate on a broken 3d model.

Animated by Sawyer Geffert at Ringling College.

Once Upon a Blue Moon – Steve Boot

There is something kind of safe and loveable about claymation. When you think about it, even the most grotesque clay monsters can be remolded into Gumby (or Pokey) so what’s to worry about? It also helps that much of the claymation I come across starts out as cute anyway. Like this one by Steve Boot.

A lonely blue alien thinks he has found a new friend to play with when a strange new explorer robot lands on his planet.

Winner of the best independent film at the 2015 “Festival Stop Motion Montreal.”
