Pretty hand-painted animation by artist Carine Khalife

Northern Bells "Animal Kingdom"

watch
Director Eric Power returns with another superb paper animation

It's been a while since we checked in with Eric Power, one of our favorite animators whose work we've featured multiple times here on SHFT. What better way to mark his return than with another truly awesome animation, this time for the Northern Bells track, "Animal Kingdom." Eric applies his signature paper animation style to the video, telling the tale of three strange creatures caught headed......read more

Paper City

watch
This subtly amazing animation follows the rise and fall of an origami city

London animator Maciek Janicki deftly renders an urban center paved with paper in Paper City, a short film he created in Cinema 4D. From the perspective of an unseen helicopter, we see a van travel through the paper streets, as buildings, trees, and infrastructure rise and collapse around it. The city "grows in one fluid take, with skyscrapers rising from the page – only to crumble,......read more

The Acorn "Restoration"

watch
Simple, no-budget beauty.

From directing duo Exploding Motor Car (Winston Hacking and Brett Long) comes this video for "Restoration," the second single off The Acorn's album No Ghost. Nothing too groundbreaking going on, just some time-lapse footage of a BBQ feast on location at a farm in Ontario. Standard scene for a folky tune. But the when the sun goes down, there's some beautiful, lo-fi lighting......read more

Young Galaxy "Fever"

watch
Montreal band unveils the seventh and final video from 'Ultramarine'

Hot on the heels of their video release for "Hard To Tell," Montreal-via-Vancouver band Young Galaxy has shared a new animated clip for "Fever"--the seventh and final video from 2013's excellent Ultramarine LP. It's a mercurial track, and Toronto filmmakers Christopher Mills and Gaëlle Legrand of Number Four Films match the audio moodiness with some glum, psychedelic imagery. The animation,......read more

I am a Forest

watch
Cardboard cuteness from Alex Schulz.

Alex Schulz's adorable animated short "I am a Forest" tells the story of two forest critters whose world gets turned upside-down. Created entirely from paper, the set and characters show off Shulz's impressive scissoring skills. But what's maybe even more amazing is the story itself, which wraps in under a minute. At the end, we're left with a burning question: If a......read more

Toh Kay, "I've Set Sail"

watch
Rime of the paper mariner.

Another day, another sweet Eric Power animation. This time we have the official video for Toh Kay's interpretation of the Dan Potthast song, "I've Set Sail." The tune comes from their split album, You By Me: Volume 1, featuring the two singer/songwriters covering five of each other's songs. The album is the first in a series that allows for two artists to reinterpret each others......read more

Blitzen Trapper, "Furr"

watch
Sepia-toned flip book animation by Jade Harris.

This video is over two years old, but we can justify posting it now because SHFT didn't exist then and because it's crazy good. It's the video for the earthy title track off the Blitzen Trapper's 2008 album, Furr. Director and fellow Portlander Jade Harris does the song proud with this analog stop motion animation. “The video consists of a little over 3000 photos and took about two months......read more

Cloud Cult, "Running With the Wolves"

watch
Another animation win from Eric Power

Cloud Cult is as much a music project as an experiment in green living. From his organic farm in Minnesota, Cloud Cult frontman Craig Minowa heads up Earthology Records, a DIY music company through which all of the band's activities take place. That includes CD replication (Earthology developed the first 100% postconsumer recycled CD packaging in the U.S.), t-shirt printing......read more

Norman Palm, "WDYD"

watch
Ameoba-like paper animation by Mareike Graf

Rough day? Warm the darkened corners of your heart with this colored paper love dance, set to the devastatingly pleasant sounds of Norman Palm. "WDYD," off Palm's latest album Shore to Shore, gets the paper animation treatment courtesy of Marieke Graf, who pulled it off in one take using "three layers with paper, foil and things you find on the kitchen floor." Impressive!...read more
