An amazing video I had to share: Hayao Miyazaki makes ramen at Studio Ghibli! Sadly, nobody in Japan seems to pay their animators a living wage, so this kind of communal cooking is one of the ways they survive. Including, apparently, the big man himself.
This short animation, Le Gouffre, was created by just 3 animators who took two years bringing it to life. It has won a number of awards including Best Animated Short at three film festivals and Official Selection at about 35 more. The quality of the finished work is amazing, from the oil painting textures to the story itself, all told without words.
This award winning short animation was put together by four very talented animators at Supinfocom Arles School of Digital Filmmaking over the course of their final year. It pulled in a ton of awards, and probably earned them job offers as well. It is another gem I found over at the CGI Bros. Channel.
This tasty little animation, Reaping For Dummies was a graduation project made by five students from the 3D design and animation course at Idèfagskolen in Tønsberg Norway in 2013. It is just one of a huge collection of great animations you can watch over at the CGI Bros. Channel.
Ghost In The Shell is always at the forefront of Cyberpunk, and the latest Anime incarnation is no slacker. For those needing more GITS before the live action film comes out, the teaser trailer from the animated feature film GITS 2015! Thanks to Otaku USA for the heads up on this one.
Sometimes words are not required, as this animation from House Special proves; enjoy.
