“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.

    Really cool!

  • Ruth

    looks amazing!!!!

  • 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.

    This is such a creative use of Flash! Can’t say I’ve ever seen it look like this.

    I actually like this! a lot of consciousness films usual turn out to be crap, but this really stands out for me!

    Totally awesome!

    This totaly made my week. Wonderfully creative! Pure fun! I was trying not to blink for fear of missing something. :)

  • 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.

  • really beautiful timing and colors.

    mind: blown. keep up the excellent work ori!
