Moose Knuckle 3

Introducing Cartoon Food TV’s weird weekends. Every weekend we’ll post some of the strangest animations we’ve found, so if you’re into stuff that doesn’t fit neatly into the usual categories and is just, well, weird you know where to find us.

First up is this wonderfully odd animation by Chris Harding about ‘A moose-pilot’s anxiety dream unfolds into an 8-bit long legged rave up in the sky.’ Yes, we think this qualifies…

Friday’s are all about the funny. Each week we’ll be selecting animations that have made us chuckle.

First up is this short from Birdbox Studio. They’ve appeared on this blog quite a few times and they’ve created so many gems that we imagine they’ll be returning visitors for some time to come. In this spot a shopping trip goes very awry.

Song Of Oden

We’re throwing the spotlight on some exciting Japanese and Chinese animation today. First up is this delicious first person animated short by Takuya Hosogane. The timing, colours music and intricacy of the animation is stunning. You can almost taste the food!

Making Of Chipotle’s “Back To The Start”

The original Chipotle commercial pioneered the trend for brands to use groundbreaking animation that we see continuing with the much hyped John Lewis christmas spot. It’s use of stop motion gave it a completely unique tone and look. Watch this fascinating behind the scenes video, as it takes us through the variety of techniques from 3D pre-viz to stop motion via 3D printing, to see meticulous process involved in bringing this beautifully crafted animation to the screen.
