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