Sheridan College student Aminder Dhaliwal created this sweet graduation film to complete her studies last year. She’s currently working as a Storyboard Revisionist at Nickelodeon Animation Studios. Her blog is worth a look too…

Have You Seen My Sister Evelyn?

Partizan director Mr. Hoku lead the charge on this new music video for the duo known as Evelyn Evelyn. The clever concept, of foggy window animation, was brought to life by lead animator Adam Bolt, who also handled character design.

The Unrepentant

The Unrepentant from Luis Gadea on Vimeo.

The Unrepentant is Luis Gadea’s classically-animated graduation film from Vancouver Film School. It’s quite short, but full of lavish designs and fluid, stylish animation. Dude can draw – and there’s proof over on his blog

No Robots!

I think I like everything about this little student film directed by Kimberly Knoll and Yunghan Chang, from San Jose State University. The storytelling, the subdued color palette, even the music and sound FX (by Gray Grove). Nice job all around…

Black Sunrise

Two Against One!

It’s a virtual guarantee that every time Philly-based Anthony Francisco Schepperd creates a piece of animation, it’s going to be more incredible than the time before. I don’t know how he keeps topping himself, but the guy is a one-man animation monster. He delivers again with stunning drawn animation on “Two Against One,” a music video he co-directed with Chris Milk for Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi. He animated the entire thing in TVPaint with some After Effects thrown in…
