Such a simple idea yet so effective. This has really inspired me for my animation. I would like to try something similar to this only with using stop motion stills.

Towers of word babble!

October 20, 2010

 

I had previously thought about ‘writing’ my animation so to speak. Using kinetic typography to tell the story visually, I still think it would be interesting to incorporate this into my animation. I found these images when searching the web for animations and although its not exactly what I had in mind its definatly a source of inspiration for me at this time. A tower of written word, Alot of the story of ‘The Tower of Babel’ is about communication and language, therefore using todays written language could be quite ironic.

Below are some images of other ‘Typographical towers’ that I found while researching.

Meo egg packaging is designed for children to encourage them to eat more eggs. I really like the simple illustrations used for each. Definatly a winner for kids. This packaging line has 6 different sauces, and each sauce has unique name such as hungry BBQ, crying chili, Wild Ranch, Sexy honey, Meo egg packaging is designed for children to encourage them to eat more eggs.

Emergency!

October 20, 2010

This poster/set of illustrations is much more simplified but at the same time being much more effective than the previous ones I have given as examples. These simple line drawings are much easier to understand and in a real life emergency may save someones life much quicker than complicated drawings with mounds of text.

Calls upon calls come into emergency services every minute so I would imagine that it would be quite difficult to determine the level of urgency for each. Therefore a simple leg break or something maybe not so serious could be holding up the line for something serious like a major car collision. This poster shows the public the difference between the numbers and gives a second option rather than just the more well-known 999. This in turn could really quicken up a response to a real emergency.

Burlesque

October 18, 2010

Burlesque, the art of seduction. Burlesque is gaining popularity not only because it’s fun but because the fashions of the burlesque era are back in favour.

Burlesque does not equal stripping – a very good burlesque dancer may remove no more than a glove or a stocking. I want to show this in my video but while only using an egg, some feather boas, lacy pieces, corsets and some heels thrown in!

All this along with some sexy music should set the atmosphere for the ‘Egg client’

Stresscase

I really like the simple ‘sketchy’ style of this animation. I think it would be an interesting style to try and recreate my ‘Tower of Babel’ story with. Its something I would like to experiment with in the near future.

Babel explained

October 13, 2010

The tale of the Tower of Babel, from Genesis 11: 1-9, is an “explanation” of why there are so many different languages. You can find the story in some of those languages by following the links below. Having a single text in a variety of languages is a good way to see similarities and differences between those languages.

The Tower of Babel did in fact exist: it was a seven-stage ziggurat (stepped pyramid) with a temple to the god Marduk at the top. It was called Etemenanki, or ‘the temple of the platform between heaven and earth’, and was built in the city of Babylon sometime during the 6th or 7th century BC.
