I’m Impressed

One of my favorite groups is They Might Be Giants and all their work is worth celebrating. But this cute/subversive new animated video by Rob Shaw of Bent Image Lab is a real treat. All I can say is, I’m Impressed.

    Check out Rob Shaw’s ‘Moodbot’ for Zune. Another killer robot but ‘Moodbot’ is more upbeat.

    One of my favorite groups too! I heard they are working on the musical score for Henry Selick’s Coraline.

    TMBG are doing so much more for the independant animators. They’re like the new NFB.

    Cool stuff, but why not illustrate the actual lyrics in the song? Don’t get me wrong, I think the animation is great and beautifully done, but it seems completely incongruous with what’s being sung, and therefore a distraction.

    Cool. Really like the design.

    I think the video illustrates the song perfectly. On the surface it’s bright, but underneath it’s quite dark and subversive.
