Nicolas Ménard may only be in his second year of the Royal College of Art in London, but his short, Somewhere, leaves most university shorts in the dust. It’s a heartbreaking tale of loneliness, love and loss and has deservedly been made a staff pick on Vimeo.
Any avid iPhone fan will no doubt find this spot to be on the side of condescending, but ignoring that it’s a pretty great spot with some great VFX work from Barcelona based Big Lazy Robot (the guys behind Keloid).
Giant Ant only released their Autumn reel yesterday, since then it has spread like wildfire across the animation interwebs. This is not without just cause, the high standard of motion flows throughout.

We don’t feature Psyop often here on LoveYouGood. It’s probably because we already expect everyone to check their site regularly. Over the years they’ve established themselves as the leading powerhouse in character led animation and there seems to be no slowing them down.

Last night saw the launch of London’s Hero, Cut & Paste’s latest collaborative project where each team was given a 5 hour live session to create their animated segment. The film was premiered at a packed HP HPZ space in Soho and featured work from some of London’s (and Paris’) top animation studios, Animade, Blackmeal, Fred & Eric, Golden Wolf, Mummu and Territory.
We have it on good authority that Cut & Paste are planning to do more events like it in the future, so keep your eyes peeled on their site for news.

Chipotle won us all over with their film last year (directed by Johnny Kelly at Nexus) about a farmer who grew a conscience and went back to organic. This time around they’ve pulled out all the stops and produced an incredibly impressive, epic animation featuring a scarecrow, lost in a world of mass production and animal cruelty, as part of their promotional drive for their new app based game.
We don’t know who did it, but if you do, let us know.
