Check out some great animated pieces I found online this morning.
This is a music video from an Israeli singer named Oren Lavie, with some lovely uplifting stop-motion. Utterly charming…
There’s a page all about how the video was made: here. It notes:
* Some of the bed sheets used in the video were taken from Oren’s own bedroom and are now considered collectors items, worth at the moment not very much and therefore used as bed sheets.
Here’s a trailer for a film called “Sita Sings the Blues,” that was animated by a woman named Nina Paley.
Here’s the description:
“Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and husband Rama. Nina is an animator whose husband moves to India, then dumps her by email. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Indian epicRamayana. Set to the 1920′s jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw, Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as “The Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told.”
Very excited to see this movie. It plays on WNET PBS in NYC on March 7, then at the New York International Children’s Film Festival (NY), on March 14.
