There she is!

Via Acksiom, I heard about this very amusing little movie.

There she is!
There she is!

And there is also a sequel:

There she is! - Step 2
There she is! Step 2

The second one Reminds me a great deal of old Bugs Bunny cartoons. Visually it’s very different, but it’s funny, frantic, and wordless. It’s a story told with motion and music, much like many of the classic Loony Toons.

Both animations are clever and charming, and both are pretty generously animated. For example, there is a shot where the camera orbits the two characters for dramatic effect. This is a pretty labor-intensive thing to do, when the animator could have just as easily cut back and forth between two static images of the characters striking different dramatic poses. But the orbit move was a lot more interesting, so the animator went the extra mile. The extra effort shows.

    I hadn’t heard about the sequel – thanks for the heads up.

    The first one is nice, but the sequel is wonderful.

    If you got to http://www.sambakza.net/ and poke around a bit, you can download the swf files.

    And there’s a third episode due out in August. Coolness.

    Screengrabs = perfect, Shamus = teh win.

    Also, for the .swfs, and just about everything else video online these days as well, some folks might find it easier to use KeepVid: http://keepvid.com/ . I did.

    Of course, if Pixy Misa’d done that, I still wouldn’t know about the upcoming Step 3 in August. Simpler is not always better, if you have the time to explore. So, kudos therefore to Pixy Misa; thank you very much!

    And a third and fourth have since come out. But man, the story got intense. It’s become a major commentary on racism and it’s pretty crazy.

    Oh my god, I loved these! All of them! Well okay, #4 got a little dark, but it all turned out okay.

    These little shorts were some of the sweetest things I’ve seen in… I don’t know how long. :) And the music, even if I couldn’t understand a word of it, felt like it fit perfectly.

    This seriously made my week. Maybe my month. Maybe even my whole year. Well, okay a lot can happen in a year. But for now, I’m happy. ^_^
