“Lion in a Coma” by Ori Toor

Israeli animation student Ori Toor made this unofficial music video for Animal Collective’s “Lion in a Coma” at the Shenkar School of Engineering and Design. He animated it straight-ahead in Flash in a stream-of-conscious fashion with no pre-planning. The piece is fluid and appealing with good ideas and good energy throughout.

    That’s wonderful!
    Hard to believe it wasn’t plotted out. It works with the music better than most animated videos —mostly on the strength of matching the same bouncy upbeat vibe.

    Awesome animation!! I love when the abstract forms solidify and become morphing volumetric shapes with purpose, then back to abstractions. Very inspiring and well done!

    Wow.. amazing! Congrats Ori!

    I can’t even BEGIN to think how that was made. Timing-out abstract animations to music? That’s too much for my little head to comprehend.

    Great track from Animal Collective also. I want to hear more from them.
