Pause 2016 Motion Response – A Brief History of Time by CraveFX, by Pause Fest

By | Inspiration | No Comments

In this conceptual animated short, we aim to create a comedic performance where the past, present and future realities overlap and interact in an environment where time has no start or end.

A modern take on Zbigniew Rybczyński’s Tango, every actor that participates in this space is trapped in an infinite loop where their actions simultaneously bare and yet bare no consequence to another. Starting with a single actor that performs the same series of mundane actions, followed by another and yet another, we start to discover the motivation of these characters and their performance do not simply coexist but are correlated in a complex chain of events. Hilarity ensues as every absurd action cumulates in an amalgamation of intricately choreographed antics.

In partnership with The Foundry.
For the Pause 2016.

In November I spent a month in New York City where I animated a new GIF every day for 30 days inspired by something that happened during my stay.

See all the looping GIFs on Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram with #NYCGifathon or follow me to keep up with the next Gifathon, coming soon…

Pause 2016 Motion Response – Tiny man by Dirty Puppet, by Pause Fest

By | Inspiration | No Comments

After eating a tasty hotdog, triangle man discovers a tiny version of himself lodged in his teeth. They immediately form a loving bond as tiny man leads them on a playful adventure of discovery.

Thanks to the amazingly talented (and patient) friends who helped out on this project and put up with my constant indecision and yammering about a triangle man eating a hotdog – Cam.
