Nexus Productions showcases the animation work of various designers and directors. Even if you haven't seen the movie, be sure to check out the opening intro and credits to Catch Me If You Can by Kuntzel & Deygas. (Flash 6)

Am I just getting old or is it incredibly irritating to have to chase a scrolling series of images with your mouse in order to get them to freeze? I gave up on the site after almost having a photic seizure.

terrible UI there, terrible.

Catch Me credits were nice, though. I've always been partial to Saul Bass' work (North by Northwest, etc.) myself.

And just for style, the Bond titles can be very impressive. My favorite? Daniel Kleinman's for Goldeneye.

Pain in the butt UI, but I'll give you a hint for that type of UI: You don't really chase the image/link. Instead, (in this case), if you position your mouse in the middle of the list, they stop. Move your mouse up a bit and it slowly scrolls up. Move it further up and it scrolls faster.

So don't think about chasing the image, so much as using the mouse position as a fast forward / rewind button, with the middle as "Stop".

But the sooner they get rid of that type of UI, the better.

I've been drooling over those Franz Ferdinand bauhaus/dada/constructivist videos for a while now.
