  • Dynamic sound effects and soft voice over (English subtitled) that creates a kind of hypnotic combo of sea waves and voice

  • I have previously seen and written about this film from ‘This Is Not A Cartoon: Programme 2
  • Great use of Plasticine for puppets and more solid materials for set and prop parts
  • Having this character making these obvious films with a few funny hints to real life melt down moments as he goes extreme in his directing role
Loco Dice: Sending This One Out by Rick Thiele & Mario Ucci
  • CG work has great environment details and lighting with the character kept smooth and without details on purpose for the storyline
  • This makes the 2D element stand out much more which strengthens the story more too.
  • People turning into building blocks to build with rather than being people but one person can change this just as originality and uniqueness can change society. Overall works really well with the music being this rhythmic repetition

  • Beautifully Animating the old woman’s story
  • Objects in the house used to tell it all

  • Lovely detailed digital drawn style of animation, well animated to the tune of music. About the lonely online social media lifestyle and how these online profiles are destroying our real lives
  • Shows how the next generation is still getting this online profile world on their shoulders as it were through this tiny ‘tweet’ bird flying to another child window to tweet
  • Great use of the music beat in the bird animation making even more of a link with the music
