Feeling Nuts

This advert is the nuts. It puts its balls on the line and tells it like it is. At Cartoon Food we think it’s the dogs proverbials…[ok, enough. Ed]

In this spot, Studio AKA use the power of humour to send an important message: young men need to regularly check their testicles, balls, gonads [stop sniggering in the back] to beat testicular cancer.

Satoshi Kon – Every Frame A Painting

A bit of an animation/editing masterclass for you! Every Frame A Painting is a brilliant series of video essays by the editor Tony Zhou. They are all worth checking out, but as we have a declared animation perspective – we wanted to show his illuminating film on the late animator and film maker Satoshi Kon.

Moosebox & Monster Pack.

In September, Nickelodeon announced the 8 finalists of their Global animated shorts program. Two episodes that really stood out for me where Moosebox and Monster Pack.

Moosebox is 2 minutes of 8-bit animated insanity. This is animation that is proud to be different. It doesn’t look like any other animation being developed or created by a mainstream broadcaster – so plaudits to Nickelodeon all round.

The producers of Monster Pack have an equal measure of creative cajones. Monster Pack unleashes a box of cartoon crazy. I loved it. Fans of Cartoon Food will recognise Pedro from some of our previous posts.
