Maybe by Sam Chou

Maybe is a sweet little, 2-minute, “Eco-piece” by Sam Chou of Toronto’s Style5 animation boutique. Chou says the work was inspired by a frustrating conversation he’d had with a friend. The film asks fundamental questions about human nature and our relationship to the environment, and uses a combination of techniques: from the traditional, hand-drawn animation, rotoscoping, to full on digital painting and compositing.

    Technically very nice.

    It’s yet another reminder of how YouTube MURDERS 24fps files. Also 25fps PAL files. It doubles certain frames. Very annoying. YouTube should have a 24/25/30 fps switch.

  • Beautiful! I’m a fan of Raymond Xu’s design work.

  • The other, few videos they have on their Youtube channel are certainly worth checking out, too.
