Animated Fragments

Animated Fragments #21

There is a mind-boggling breadth of expression and experimentation across the contemporary global animation scene. The short animation clips and exercises that I offer in Animated Fragments represent just a glimpse of the fresh ideas being explored by today’s animators:

“QQQ” Trailer by YungSung Song (South Korea/Japan)

“Feuerwerk” by Joshua Catalano (France)

“More Than A Feeling” by Matt Reynolds (US)

“CVTV” by Saigo No Shudan (Japan)

“Feminine Flow” by Rickard Bengtsson (Sweden): “This animation, except the subtle background texture, is created 100% in After Effects. All of the animation is created and keyframed by hand using lots of masks and layers.”

  • “Feuerwerk”. Yowsah! That’s the stuff.


    “Feminine Flow”. Those wonderful graphics should be put to use in a commercial for some product or other.
