Antonio Vicentini, who has a homepage of Boobiesareawesome.tv, just posted this fun video of the history of cameras as rendered in 16-bit, pixelated form. The best part is trying to figure out what the cameras are, and how iconic certain models have become of the years.

Directed by Slovenian animator and director Rok Predin, "Inside" is a mesmerizing little video that was created through Trunk Animation studio using Cinema 4D and composited using After Effects. The animation's deceptively simple concept, peeling away the layers of objects to reveal a hidden and unexpected core, slowly builds a strange philosophical depth as its objects and revelations become more abstract and surreal.

There is an obvious antsy, excitable amount of energy and roughness in this short, graphic, slightly insane animation put together with drawings Tim O’Hern made while stuck in a hospital bed. Sometimes being at the mercy of your health isn't necessarily a bad thing, though from the looks of it things can get kind of maddening. Get well soon!

Adorably witty little animation from António Silva who won 1st place in Greyscale Gorilla's 5 Second Project contest under the Monster Bash theme for the piece. 'My animation is a 5 second story about a little vampire that comes to life in paper and gets bashed with a poetic wooden stake - a pencil.' Awwww...

We just saw this video, Sleeping Betty, by Claude Cloutier, posted by the National Film Board of Canada. Drawn in India ink, this animation video sets the "Perrault classic in Claude Cloutier’s disjointed, anachronistic and playful universe."
