“Nameless World” by Arthur de Pins

As I watched “Nameless World,” the new music video directed by French artist Arthur de Pins, all I could think was, Why can’t more commercially produced animation look this fun and appealing? Seriously, is it that hard to use Flash and Illustrator to create a smooth digital animation style that takes advantage of those particular programs’ strengths?

De Pins created the video for the French band Skip the Use, but the characters in the video are from his comic series Zombillenium, which readers will be delighted to learn is the first de Pins comic translated into English.

I’ve been a fan of de Pins for a long time and though it’s animation’s loss that he sticks mostly to comics nowadays, his animated projects still impress.
