« BIG BANG BIG BOOM:
An unscientific point of view on the beginning and evolution of life … and how it could probably end.

Quand Blu fait une nouvelle animation, c’est toujours un événement. cette fois-ci, il s’attaque à la création et à l’évolution de la vie. Rien de moins. Heureusement, comme il le précise dans sa description il s’agit d’un point de vue non-scientifique. Et c’est rassurant.

Blu revient avec une animation toujours aussi hallucinante. Cette fois il s’attaque à l’évolution de la vie… jusqu’à sa fin. Tout un programme.

Student Graduation Animation by Sjors Vervoort.

Vidéo de fin d’année de Sjors Vervoort, un étudiant néerlandais en animation.  La bande-son est de Steven Aerts. Des bestioles dessinées sur du carton se baladent dans les rues d’une ville. On pourrait rapprocher son travail de celui de Blu et lui reprocher. Mais franchement, c’est le genre de vidéo qui cartonne, non ?

MUTO is a short film by Blu. It is an animation in stop-motion painted on public walls. The movie was made in Buenos Aires and in Baden. Here the paintings are alive and invade the city. Blu’s characters are half human, half machine, half beast, and human elements such as limbs (tooth, hands etc.)  can live freely their autonomous life, a bit like insects. I’m just hypnotised by that kind of animation. And I also like to watch the marks of white paint left behind the characters.

The music is by Andrea Martignoni – Produced by Mercurio Film – assistant: Sibe


This  second video is entitled Walking


And this last animation is called Letter A
