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.

There must be no rules at MTV when it comes to these promos and I think that is brilliant. Hence the sheer madness that is this spot from PepperMelon.

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.

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.
