The Walk

Stop what you are doing, sit back and breath in this lovely slice of animation. Inspired by walks through the lake district, it is full of air, light and peace. The Walk, by Art & Graft

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.

Brain Lapse

This is a hand-drawn, extraordinarily detailed, masterpiece by Jake Fried. Jack started as a painter, but his work has shifted into the temporal dimension; these pictures move, and then some. It’s an animated kaleidoscope. Give your eyes a work out and watch this!

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.

Lucien, Superstar

Lucien may be a super star, but we think Samantha Leriche-Gionet qualifies too for producing this super sweet student film.
