Here’s an elegant variation on some spatial ideas that’ll be familiar to regular readers (at least the theory nerds among you).
I liked it a lot. You might too.
Thanks to Rachelle for the pointer.
Fantastic work. The grammarian in me would like to see a bit more space between “every” and “day.” The comics lover in me was wholly satisfied.
The 3-d recalls the spatial layout of a manga you pointed us to a few months back, Shintaro Kago’s Abstraction, right?
Yeah, the 3-D turns are a bit Kagoesque.
A wonderful video!.. It is kind of neat to see your book in action, so to speak!.. Jacques did a elegant job with this!.. =)
very cool. speaking of theory. is there a podcast i can listen to that’s mostly about comics theory and comics industry issues?
I listen to Panelborders. It’s a UK comics radio show. Not loads of theory discussion; mostly interviews with up and coming cartoonists about their work
Oh lord…I have to do it…
“Is it comics???!!!”
I say yes. It’s animation heavy for sure, but there is a strong presence of closure between distinct forms. And even though the animation controls a lot of the pacing, many compositions were static enough that I was able to “read” the panels at my own leisure, sometimes to look at what came before and sometimes to sneak a peak at what was coming next.
I refrained from asking, but It was hard!
It’s McLuhan. Thanks Scott. It’s McLuhan.
hey thanks guys for the comments and thank you m McCloud for posting it. My inspiration were for sure M Ware and also M Tom Gauld.
It was a project i did within the context of the sequential classes i was taking. I tried to merge animation (my profession) with principles of comics (panels, pacing, text vs images, etc).
again thank you and hope you guys enjoyed it
It’s great work, Jacques. Thanks for checking in!
Have you seen the Ira Glass/Chis Ware “Lost Buildings” DVD? I think you might enjoy it.
Fascinating. The pacing was perfect and complemented the subject matter to a tee.
