The throwback Hanna-Barbera thing happening in these PSAs for Mtv is fantastic. It’s the perfect marriage of style and content compliments of Parasol Island for Grey. These are apparently 8 months old but this is the first I’ve seen of them.

The guys in the studio turned me onto the motion work of the German studio Polynoid today. The work is slick, psychedelic and totally awesome (case in point the work for Mtv above). You can visit their website and portfolio here.
Whoah, here is some crazy weird but also totally awesome 3D mograph action by studio Sehsucht™ for an Mtv ident. There was a huge list of folks involved in this little bit of video and you can see who they all are by clicking here.
As a new parent, all kinds of thing affect me emotionally in ways they didn’t before the birth of my son. This T.V. spot for Mtv resonated with the protective parent in me that is always trying to keep my little boy out of harms way.

I Love Dust created this psychedelic freakout for MTV’s World Design Studio as a part of their first creative collaboration with 55DSL. I have no idea how you get something like this past the client but sign us up. I am a big huge slobbery fan of I Love Dust and it’s exciting to see where they have gone lately with animation and motion.
There were two short bumpers recently created by Umeric for Mtv and the one above is ‘Spot A’ You can watch ‘Spot B’ here. There has been talk about extending these into something a little more fully fleshed out which would surely be interesting to see.

Fatal Farm was asked to create some shorts for the Mtv Movie Awards but several of them were rejected. They decided to air the results on YouTube anyway much to everyone’s chagrin. Personally, I think they are weird, original and hilarious.
Mtv Networks International tasked a talented group of animators and motionographers (Tronic, Universal Everything, Zeiguised and Zhestkov) to create a series of bumpers. The results are pretty stunning and a hell of a lot of fun to watch.
You can watch the videos above and read a little more about the project here.
Remember all of those music videos from your youth that you absolutely loved. Better yet, remember when Mtv actually played music videos? Well, they have put their full archive online and it is a treasure trove of good times and a pleasant stroll down memory lane.
You can watch all your favorites now at Mtv Music.

04/12 ZIMMERMAN FACES MURDER In a case we’ve been following closely there is finally what we think is some good news to report.

12/16 HITCHENS DIES Outspoken author and pundit Christopher Hitchens passed away yesterday at the age of 62 after succombing to a long battle with cancer. His honest and bravado opinion that rarely favored one side versus the other but was instead often a cry for ‘reason’ will be missed.
