spotted: captivating animations

May 18, 2013

What is the link between The emperor’s new clothes and language science? Find out in a wonderful RSA animation on pragmatics titled: Language as a window into human nature (by Steven Pinker). If you like animations, but you’re more into economics or history, then it might be a good idea to google some other RSA animations.

Spotted – for all the fathers and daughters…

November 10, 2010

“Father And Daughter” by Michael Dudok de Wit – 2000
73rd Academy Awards Winner for Best Animated Short Film & 54th BAFTA Winner for Best Short Animation.

“A father says goodbye to his young daughter and leaves. As the wide Dutch landscapes live through their seasons so the girl lives through hers. She becomes a young woman, has a family and in time she becomes old, yet within her there is always a deep longing for her father.”
A heartbreaking masterpiece, told in simple lines, colours and shades.

Grickle says he has a tough time letting Halloween go by without making a new animated short to celebrate it.
I’m not too keen on Halloween, but I love nice animations and Performance is very remarkable and funny. Enjoy!
