SkateboardAnimation by Tilles Singer

Photographs of skateboarders cut out and re-arranged in new environments. Tilles Singer’s short owes a debt to Virgil Widrich’s Fast Film, which remains the gold standard of this technique, but SkateboardAnimation has enough creative touches to stand on its own.

    I loved this!! I love animation that isn’t “traditional” as you might say. That’s sort of what I try for in my own work, but I’ve never thought of anything like this! I’ll have to check out this blog more often now that I know the great stuff you put on here!

    I really like this! Something that really stood out to me was the sound. The sound people did a good job matching the sound effects to the feel of the animation which made this all the more enjoyable.

    Hey Jack, there’s nothing wrong with liking or not “traditional” animation. It’s the animation medium as a whole that’s intriguing to you, right? Best of luck with all your non-traditional stuff.

    The old Bogart movie animation in the link was really entertaining. Nice combination of stop motion/paper cut out with video editing. Alot of fun to watch.

    As an animator AND a skateboarder I have to say this is just awesome!

    that was great… but did it end on “skateboard shreds”? is that the title? unfortunate.

    That was really great! I wish the camera was on a tripod though — it’s a little jittery.
