Moving Graffiti

This is probably one of the coolest things I have seen in a while.

It's a short film called MUTO by Blu. Every frame of the animation is painted onto a public wall to create moving graffiti. The camera is a little to jerky for my tastes, but you can't beat the concept.

Enjoy it.

Hey there, Chris here, just wanted to tell you about the sweet new site It hosted a plethora of user-created flash components, actionscript code, effects, and plug-ins. And they're cheap! Some files are as low as a dollar, and considering the time saved, FlashDen can really help on projects.
The MP3 player on came from a coder on FlashDen, I'm really loving it. All files come with full source code to modify. Maybe I'm just a nerd, but I think it's so cool.

The Story of Khale 2

Kevin Okulolo, a 19 year old animator out of UC Davis has released the second episode of The Story of Khale. The first one was the closest thing I've seen to the work of Adam Phillips, the guy who is probably the best Flash animator out there. So check it out. Kevin has a bright future in animation ahead of him.

Practicing The Elevator Pitch

Tim Ferriss, author of the bestselling book, The 4-Hour Workweek, has just posted this on his blog. Its three tips on how to give a good elevator pitch. Being able to pitch a TV show in under a minute is a useful skill in the entertainment industry (or any industry for that matter) and should be practiced. There isn't much instruction on the blog, but his tips are a really good starting point.

The first video is Mr. Ferriss giving his elevator pitch. The second is only useful if you speak German.

Venture Bros. Season 3 Trailer

We here at Moving Box love Adult Swim and The Venture Bros. is probably our favorite show on it, so when we saw a link to a new trailer for season 3 on we almost soiled ourselves.

There are a few, let's say, weird moments, but we're pretty excited.

Watch it here.

Magazines & Cruel Jokes

The May issue of Video Maker Magazine, where our cartoon, Bacon Samurai, won animation of the year has hit news stands everywhere. Wright's name was left out as the creator by mistake, so we'll give him a shout out here while we wait for the correction in an upcoming issue.

We also found this a little while ago. Its called Spider by Blue-Tongue Films, a small group of film-makers based in Australia. Enjoy it, as well as all their other work.
