Chris Butcher works stop-motion magic with toy soldiers and flower buds. "Plot-oon"
also: it’s doing it again. vimeo no likey embeds on boingboing. mac OSx/firefox latest
Works fine in Win7/FF
Vimeo embeds aren’t clever enough to serve up an HTML5 version unless you’re on a mobile device, install flash, or use Chrome
yeah…. I’ve got flash. I was under the impression that was required to run vimeo and youtube videos at all, nevermind embeds. well, whatever. that ain’t it. i suppose next you’ll say that i need the latest version but this is the last one supported by my OS, so forget it.
Next I’ll say don’t be an arse, I was trying to help you out
Jolly good show!
But shouldn’t we acknowledge the influence of Pes…?
We are huge fans of Pes and have posted those animations many times.
Sorry David, when I said ‘we’ I really meant Chris Butcher.
(That is not to detract from his fine animation though!)
He may have been influenced by Pes, but I don’t think he has to mention him in the titles if that’s what you mean.
i completely agree…
“Charlie don’t surf.”
No hamburger money.
That was the best thing I have seen all year. Thanks for sharing, David.
Its not Pes or Chris Butcher but the belgiums Vincent Patar and Stéphane Aubier who’s done the incredible series about Cowboy, Indian and Horse he’s been “influenced” by.
Theres even a full flim http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9l-Cp5EAg1E by the belgian greats….
I hadn’t seen these but they’re really cool :) My influence for any animation i’ve made would be Jan Svankmajer. Chris
Oh and thank you for the share too David :) Chris
Love the flower explosions!
