Animations on a Friday…

Here’s a rather nice homage to early American propaganda animations, with a modern political setting.

Originally a “Best Animation” finalist in MoveOn.org’s “Bush in 30 Seconds” contest, the commercial spot has been expanded to a seven minute short cartoon that tells the rest of the story of Melvin McBean and his family’s struggle to make ends meet in Bush’s economy.

Very nicely done.

Also, have a look at Patrick Blower’s latest Livedraw for the online Telegraph.
It’s a beautifully done piece starting with the tree planting ceremony at the G8 summit in Japan.
Again I can’t seem to find it on the front page, so I’m linking to Blower’s own Livedraw page. Click on archives, and it’s top of the list.

UPDATE:
Matt ‘Hack’ Buck’s Friday animation for Channel 4 News online has just gone live, so make sure you catch that one too!

    Yes. Lovely. If a bit slow.
    And Patrick’s good too. If a bit apocalyptic!
