FMA Animated Vimeo Highlights

Artists posting their music on the Free Music Archive often permit it to be used by filmmakers for their projects (there’s an entire Music for Video portal on the site), but that doesn’t mean they know where their songs might end up. Videos on Vimeo soundtracked by FMA music include a gazpacho making tutorial, several biking videos, and a nun discussing the synthesis of religious life and politics. As...unique as all of those projects are, many of the most creative videos on Vimeo that feature FMA artists also happen to be animated. Below are links to several animated clips.

 

“Until Next Summer”

"until next summer" process from asafhanuka on Vimeo.

 A surprisingly melancholy video showing the creation process behind an animation cell.

 

Bad Apples"

Bad Apples from Gary Bird on Vimeo.

 Apples falling onto a wet surface. There’s literally nothing else that can be said about this one.

 

TWIST

TWIST from MiRon on Vimeo.

A colorful phantasmagoria skillfully set to Flying Lotus’s “Into Infinity ‘ear’ Loop”

 

"Pet Plant”

Pet Plant from Stormy Pyeatte on Vimeo.

 The tragic story of a monster and his plant. Everything you love and care for will one day eat you alive.
