“Wail to God” Video by Anthony Schepperd

Don’t miss Anthony F. Schepperd’s video for Ape School‘s “Wail to God.” The immediacy and intensity of his drawn animation is a real pleasure to watch. His stretchy character transformations and surrealist touches like the NSFW tit-trees give off a vibe of somebody who’s having fun with the possibilities of animation.

    I love it when an animator really pushes animation to, well, be animated! Awesome job. :)

    Makes you wish Pink Floyd would get back together and make another rock opera/movie, this guy would fit hand-in-glove with the ideas Mssrs. Waters and Gilmour could create.

    Wild stuff. I agree, there should be more stuff like this. I love seeing rough looking animation.

    Those tit-trees are NSFW? Where’re you working these days, Amid? The Anti Innocuous Abstraction League?

    Anyone know what software he used to make this? I love the sketchiness of it, maybe tv paint or flipbook?

    Frame by frame in flash, I do believe. Great to see people digging this. We’re very proud of it!

  • Tiwa

    Started out pretty good and then crash-bang-WHAM’ed into something flat out amazing! Reminds me a little of Patrick Smith, only five times as wild!
