Firekites - Autumn Story

This is a really pretty animation for a very pretty song.
Animated in chalk across a series of blackboards.
Lovely stuff.
Co-directed by Yanni Kronenberg and Lucinda Schreiber

Mary and Max


I finally got around to watching Adam Elliot's new feature film Mary & Max last week, and I have to say I loved it. It is a really gorgeous film. To start with, it's visually stunning. The animation is exquisite, and the photography is simply beautiful. Wonderful colours and fantastic art direction. Overall, it's very easy on the eyes. The film also has a wonderful (and disturbing) sense of humour.

I can't recommend it enough. Go out and watch it! I'll be going down and watching it again hopefully this week. It's not every day that a truly stunning Australian film is released (let alone an animated one), so we better enjoy it while we've got it!

Here's the trailer:

Psuche Album Launch


Last night I checked out the Psuche (pronounced "sue-key") album launch at the Northcote Social Club. I stumbled across Psuche's music a little while ago and have been loving it ever since. They put on a great show and the album is a really stunning piece of work. I highly recommend you get yourself a copy. You can order it from their label's website.

I also caught The Harpoons, who stepped in as emergency support act when Qua was sick. These guys are awesome. They were a real pleasure to experience live, so much energy, and to put it simply just a whole lot of fun. You can check out their music here.
