Who would have even thought back in the day that the height of artistry in the medium of animated gif would come in the Twenty-Teens?

I just happen to be listening to Death Grips so this is perfect.

This is awesome but it losses some points for making me acutely aware of why, at the amusement park, I group with the coaster people and not the spinny ride people.

I feel like I just stepped off a giant rubber band.

These were created for a music video project featuring Kalle Matson.

I was all set to complain about another insufferable SF dou -- hey, these are really cool!

I was just there, and now I wish I was back.

Yeah... the music video was the first thing I've seen in a long time that just makes me go "now how in the hell did they do that..."

These are absolutely wonderful. It's very rare, but occasionally contemplating the technicalities of how something was made will give me an actual sense of wonder. These are gorgeous, besides.

This thread would have at least twice as many comments if you hadn't mentioned the dreaded "R-word" in the OP.

Here's some other cool thing by the same bananimator. It's stop motion, in a very different style.

And again (a short film done in college, not a music video).

They set it to music.
