Fuck Death

Fuck Death is the latest from director Graydon Sheppard. He tells me that he had less than a week to come up with the concept, write the spot, draw, animate and edit it. Created for the Fuck Death Foundation, it was screened recently at Camera Bar, Toronto before a showing of Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal. Full credits here.

Short of the Week

I just found this site last week and I wish I had stumbled across it sooner. It features great short films and interesting Q&As with directors. Check out their Best of 2007 and their feature on Trevor Cawood’s Terminus.

Sneezing Bus Stop

Here’s another great campaign from Rethink Vancouver for Science World. This time it’s in the form of a bus shelter that sneezes on people as they wait for their bus. View a past TV spot (equally as educational and gross) for Science World here. Scooped from AdRants via Fresh Creation.

Nice Legs

Legs is the latest spot for Monster and is directed by MJZ’s Rupert Sanders with visual effects by MassMarket. To create the legs MassMarket’s Cedric (VFX Supervisor and Lead Flame artist) tested a few approaches and came up with a technique to use stilts and prosthetics for some scenes as well a little Flame ingenuity and magic to create the overall look. Agency is BBDO New York. Full credits are posted here. Warning: the large video file takes a few moments to load.
