Let it Burn

Our friends Mr Shiraz have dropped a new video from their upcoming new album. No stranger to inventive and mental videos (See here), this one is no exception, a decidedly lo-fi animation that features a giant monster and lazer beams shot from the bands instruments and crotches – what’s not to like?!

Directed by Paul Royston
Animation by John Feather

More Shiraz goodness here.


Lovely little animation here…

Final year short animation done at Stockport College.
The idea for the short came about from reading stories told by the Native Americans about death and the afterlife.

By Tom Mathieson, more work here.

fourScreen – James Lashmar

Throughout my time at University, I have continued to learn motion, animation and 3D design amongst other things. I also have a very keen interest in music and I love exploring the link between sound and visuals. When writing my dissertation, I explored the history of music video and discussed the idea of it becoming a ‘hot media’. I also explored the idea of holism within music. Holism is the theory that a whole, is greater than the sum of all its parts. My reading of Deleuze emphasises contingent holism and suggests that Deleuzian multiplicity should be seen micro-holisticaly. That is to say, music contains multiple instances of holism in the form of genres, with each genre having different conditions around its own emergence and also possible sub genres. FourScreen is my final project – an installation exploring holism with music providing a visual interactive experience.code
