Coco de Elevador by Paulo Passaro


Here’s a treat for you all! Brazilian animator Paulo Passaro got in touch in the comments thread on this blog. He was cool and generous enough to share an animated music video he’d been working on. As soon as we saw it we loved the collision of different animation techniques and the bitter-sweet story. If you have any animation you’d like to share with us to show on this blog just get in touch!

And to stoke those creative ember, we’ve delved into the archives to bring you this animation from Christmas past. The level of detail is fantastic. Joseph Peller hand-painted all of the figures and props in this stunning slice of stop-motion.
