I’m loving the kawaii animations created by Japanese studio Pantograph. Here’s a little stop-motion number they produced for Google, to explain how Streetview works. Nice.

I’m going to see Casiotone for the Painfully Alone play at Sneaky Pete’s next week so I thought I’d post this charming video for White Corolla, created by Julia Pott and Robin Bushell.

Glasgow based illustrator, Joseph Mann created this impressive stop-motion music video for local band Findo Gask, using a turning model made from cardboard. Check out his website to see his equally brilliant films ‘Taller than Trees‘ and ‘I made you a balloon‘. Great soundtracks too.

Zoe (à la Conversation Pieces), sent me this short stop-motion film by animator and illustrator Kirsten Lepore. It’s about the adventures of a cupcake who gets stranded on a vegetable island. Ahh to live in a kingdom made of sugar…

Making Fiends is a wickedly funny cartoon by Amy Winfrey about a menacing tyrant, called Vendetta, who creates monstrous creatures in an attempt to destroy her nemesis, the perpetually cheerful Charlotte. Take yourself to the town of Clamburg and see the fiends for yourself.
