"This is not a time to lie" by Ray Lei

26-year-old Chinese artist Ray Lei has published a very beautiful piece of hand drawn animation:

This is not a time to lie from RAY

I especially like the use of texture and the minimalistic visual narrative.

Ray Lei has also given a nice TED lecture in Shanghai where he talks about his process and life as an animator in China:

Shit Showreels say by Peter Quinn

Vancouver based Peter Quinn has made a wonderful ‘Anti-Showreel’, how he puts it, showing off some of the “en vogue” Motion Design techniques of present days. It has made me smile a lot!

On his website you can even find the project files, thank you Peter!

Quote: Jarmusch on Authenticity

“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is nonexistent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery—celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: ‘It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to.’”

Jim Jarmusch
