This is a new feature we’re adding to the blog. And we’re starting it up with a doozy.
12 Minutes of Brain-melting Goodness
I had never seen this commercial (if you can call it that) for a Volvo before. Made in 2004, this short film features Robert Downey Jr. and is the kind of Moebius Strip narrative that just makes me feel alive.
If you watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1) over the weekend you were probably curious about the stunning animation sequence that is the hands-down highlight of the film. It was directed by one Ben Hibon, who also made this little beauty four years ago.
Animation of this quality just makes me want to curl up in a ball and mewl like a day-old kitten.
