I was totally consumed by Schwarzenegger as a child. I even competed in bodybuilding as a teen I wanted so much to be like him. So I was pretty jazzed by this animation piece paying homage to the now dethroned king of manliness by Brainbow.

We recently came across the work of Japanese cell animator Mirai Mizue and have been pretty blown away by her body of work. Reminds us a lot of the psychedelic work of filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki.

Word on the street is that Director Guy Verge Wallace is a very young man and the other word on the street after the direction and production of this amazing video for Papa Vs Pretty will be that he is shit-hot talented. This looks like it was so much work and the end result is fantastic.

Matt & Julie aren’t just creative partners, they are also husband and wife and they run a creative studio called Tiger In A Jar. They recently completed a stop-motion animation music video set to Sufjan Steven’s song “All For Myself”. It’s a fun little romp about a dinosaur set to an excellent track. Time to pick up the new Sufjan album.
