I've seen a lot of amazing animation over the past few days which I thought I'd share.
This is a sand animation by Caroline Leaf which is featured in the Watch me Move exhibition at the Barbican gallery. It's astonishing to think that this was entirely created by drawing with sand on a lightbox. The exhibition is beautifully designed and well worth a visit.
There is a lot of interesting things happening at the folly for a flyover in Hackney Wick over the summer. This weird and wonderful animation The Centaurs' (1921) by Winsor McCay was shown alongside a selection of other early animations.
And finally I watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 1 recently and was really impressed by the beautiful animation sequence of the The Tale of the Three Brothers. The animation was directed by Ben Hibon who produced it in association with framestore. Check it out for yourself here
