Saturday Morning Animation – Death Cab For Cutie – Grapevine Fires

14 Mar 2009, 11:54am

Sorry this is late but here is your Saturday Morning Afternoon Animation. It is the new video for Death Cab for Cuties song Grapevine Fires directed by Walter Robot Studio.

ATTENTION: WFMU is in desperate need of your help. It is a one-of-a-kind radio station out of New Jersey that you can listen to on-line. Let me tell you people, if you can’t find a show on this station that you don’t like – nay – become addicted to, then I DO NOT KNOW YOU! And they need our help. If they do not reach their goal this year they could lose their construction permit for a new transmitter. If that happens, I WILL HUNT DOWN EVERYONE WHO READS THIS BUT DOES NOT PLEDGE!! Even $15 will help. Please go here and pledge what you can today. I mean, C’mon…$15 is not even a weeks worth of coffee when these folks are bringing it EVERY DAY!

Get on it. Please.

Saturday Morning Animation – Big Buck Bunny

Big Buck Bunny is a great little animation made with Blender, an open source (read: free) software that anyone can download and use to create their own animations. I highly recommend watching this in HD here.

Oooooh! This looks quite good. Quite the flashy website, too, that has a bunch of hidden stuff worth rooting around for. If you got some time, go poke around.

It is directed by  Neil Gaiman who also directed The Nightmare Before Christmas. I will be seeing this in the theater fo’ sho’.

The creators also are behind a pretty bitchin’ viral marketing campaign. They made and sent out fifty individual customized boxes filled with things from the movie and sent them to various blogs. Here are some links to a some of the lucky  bloggers and their respective posts about receiving their treasure:

emmyymme, tomopop, Darkmatters, Toycutter, Kissthelibrarian, fashion-pirahna, stainlesssteeldroppings

Pretty cool viral marketing if you ask me.
