“The animation work was made in Adobe After Effects. Each frame was then printed and the print was subsequently scanned back into the computer. The scanned frames were then assembled back into the original animation, now with a new rugged look, created by the visit in the physical analogue world. No effects added after scanning.”
I’ve always been rather partial to the craggy, mechanical warmth of halftone patterns and this minimal-and-mysterious music video by Steffen Bygebjerg for Troels Abrahamsen puts them center stage. ENJOY!
IMPACTIST (a.k.a. Kelly Meador & Daniel Elwing) are, “a directing duo with a diverse background in film production, design, animation, music, and the fine arts.” Their music reminds me a lot of Tycho and Ulrich Schnauss but is wholly unique in it’s whimsy, playfulness and minimalism. It’s very very nice, really. The little promotional videos they create to highlight what they are up to are a treat as well; I especially love how they combine ‘crunchy’ mediums like Super 8 with exacting colorful and modern geometric animations.
