Lately I have been admiring the cel style. I've been seeing a lot more of those pop up in my feed. As soon as I wrap up a couple of projects I'm going to start dabbling with frame by frame. I've only attempted it once. It's so time consuming but it can be a lot of fun.
The World of 2030: Episode I - The Rise of The Ageless Workforce from James Curran on Vimeo.
This is a fun piece with a nice retro feel. There's so much going on in the establishing scenes. It's kind of like 'Where's Waldo?', every time I watch it I find something new. The characters are great and really expressive.
CGCS - Council of the Great City Schools from Not To Scale on Vimeo.
I love the style of this piece. The stop motion feel mixed with the images and illustrations is reminiscent of a high school class project. I like the back and forth between the student and adult. Three minutes is a long time but this held my attention.
Erupt - Pause Fest 2015 from Jumbla on Vimeo.
This is a great mix of techniques: Cel, 2D, & 3D. What a wild ride! I never get tired of watching well executed cel style morphs.
Skyrim from Carl Johan Hasselrot on Vimeo.
This is a really slick piece. The colors and the style fit together nicely. The pacing is great and the motions are so fluid.
Get Jobber! from Thinkmojo, Inc. on Vimeo.
This piece feels really fluid also. Everything is so smooth. A lot of subtle touches on the motion that really give this piece a polish. The map starting to fold is a neat trick.
