Bill Porter’s short illustrated animation, On Time Off, will either inspire you to head to the beach or make you want to stay as far the hell away as possible. His melancholic and satirical take on beach life stems from his own experiences working in an ice cream shop in Cornwall. Say goodbye to summer, and see you in Mexico.

This animation by Drew Christie has some things that remind us of William Kentridge's work. Kentridge's work is some of our favorite, and Drew Christie makes a pretty interesting animation here as well. The shaky style and constant movement has a similar feel.

We can all agree that Jurassic Park is one of the great blockbuster/fantasy movies of our time, introducing the world to one of the great predators of all time, the raptor. ThisIsColossal found this great video that Tal Moskovich created as an infographic animation of Dr Alan Grant explaining the danger of the raptor.

We know this is about a year old, but we really enjoy the work of director Jamie Caliri, and Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay is a fantastic book. So Caliri doing an exploration of animation concepts for the upcoming, yet-to-be scheduled film seems appropriate to share.

That is a mouthful. This project, MÖBIUS, by Melbourne, Australia-based design and public art installation firm ENESS, seems simple enough: a lot of effects done on a computer to make the effect of objects moving in and around a city center. But this is one painstaking, deliberate, detailed piece of stop motion, public art.
