katachi and a gum boy
My super short animated film fest! v.2 may now be over, but that doesn't mean that the fantastic animations don't keep on coming! First up, Katachi, the latest stop-motion music video for the Japanese singer/songwriter Shugo Tokumaru (whose new album, In Focus? I totally want to purchase), by the animation duo Katarzyna Kijek and Przemysław Adamski. It's pretty much guaranteed to make you want to dance.
And then there's the hand-drawn animation Kuchao/A GUM BOY, by Japanese animator and illustrator Masaki Okuda. With great visuals, fun music and wonderfully different animation styles, I think that that these two little films make for the perfect way to start the week. Enjoy!
