I absolutely loved loved loved this little animated piece. The poetry, the reading and the frenzied kinetic animation style are all right on tone. It’s fantastic in every way possible and genuinely inspiring if you are involved in animation.

I loved this little animation. It’s fun, well styled, well storied, simple but engrossing. Excellent work.

Lots of people involved on this one and they are all here in all CAPS.

A short film about dreaming dreams.

Our studio wants a project like this.

“Beakus director Mr Binns created this beautiful and stylish promo for the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
We were asked to convey a complex idea – how business and consumers should change their habits to an ecology in which we re-generate all the materials we use – in a bright, fun, and engaging way. Mr Binns designed a pared back but cleverly though out world of technology and work in which to tell the story of rotund worker bees living in a new, fresh, Circular Economy.
Go learn more about the idea, and why it’s making headway in business and politics here: ellenmacarthurfoundation.org

Wow this was a lot of work. Simple animation style but a lot of work.

This work is an alphabetical list of the most important architects with their best known building.
A lot of them have been left out with grief because we only need one for each letter and we done an effort to have differents nationalities. If you love architecture, for more stuff you can follow us in ombuarchitecture.tumblr.com

Well if you can recall Buck’s contribution to the Good Books campaign earlier this year then you also still probably remember having at least part of your face melted. If you can believe it Good Books has done it again this time by combining the talents of Mcbess and Simon from The Mill in London to produce this equally amazing piece of animation and copywriting. (Mcbess also works for The Mill). I was very impressed by the writing in both of these spots but the animation does steal the show.

“He’s small and easy-going – light-hearted but very social. He’s good on the phone and is a massive music fan. He’s a romantic. While he tends to be a little loud, he likes nothing more than to just blend into the background and help set the scene. He looks great in black and he’s not attached… to anything.”

One of my friend’s tweeted this (I’ll never get used to saying ‘tweeted’) and I kept it top of mind for a while. Silky Smooth animation through and through.
