    Yesterday was the 76th birthday of legendary Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki, and to celebrate Alexandre Gasulla has released a compilation featuring some of the highlights of his body of work.

    ‘Magic Clay': Claymation Short From Guldies (Video)

    As forms of animation go, they don’t get much more fun to watch than claymation. The animator known as Guldies is one of the new masters of the form, and his latest work entitled Magic Clay is a good, quick demonstration of why exactly that is.

    Back in the 1950s and 60s, Jack Webb used to sum up what life was like in Los Angeles with his signature “this is the City” monologues on Dragnet. But times have changed, and now the City of Angels is being summed up not in words, but animated GIFs. Animator James Curran spent 30 days in […]
