Embroidered Zoetrope

This project by Elliot Schultz encourages viewers to watch and engage with animation physically.

Discs were created with animated sequences embroidered onto their surface. They have been designed to be played on standard turntables and their shape and size is inherited from 10″ vinyl records. The animation is activated when a strobe light illuminates the discs in sync with the embroidered frames of animation.

The Last Bus

The Last Bus is a short film about people who are hunted.

Since 2011, it’s been showed on more than one hundred international film events. Film attracted attention, it provoked by its ambiguous cross-animation-fiction nature, and by its content. It was awarded by dozens of awards including the top prizes of the short film festivals in Tampere, St. Petersburg, Kiev and animated film festivals in Stuttgart, Dresden, Ljubljana and others.

Its real importance comes in 2015 when Europe faces a huge humanitarian disaster and Europeans must look straight into the eyes of refugees.

Tony Iommi Reveals Heavy Metal’s Bloody Origins

Did you know that if it weren’t for a tragic industrial accident which chopped off the tops of two of the fingers on Tony Iommi`s fretting hand, he might not ever have created the heavy metal guitar sound that has reverberated through the ages? The new VH1.com animated short “The Complete History of Heavy Metal: Fingers Bloody Fingers” explores how the guitarist made “a good thing off a bad thing.”

The Power of Empathy

The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts public events programme has launched RSA Shorts. This new series provides a snapshot of a big idea, blending voices from the RSA public events programme and the creative talents of illustrators and animators from around the world. It responds to the ever-increasing need for new ideas and inspiration in our busy lives and acts as a shot of ‘mental espresso’ to awaken the curiosity in all of us.

The audio of this RSA short is of Dr Brené Brown who spoke at the RSA on The Power of Vulnerability. She talks about the difference between sympathy and empathy and argues that to be truly empathetic you have to be vulnerable by connecting with someone’s pain in yourself.

Animated & directed by Katy Davis.
