'Skindeep' by YUCA, Edi, and YOUTH

“SKINDEEP” is an emotive animated short film, directed by YUCA, Edi, and YOUTH, that brings race-based trauma to the surface. It was co-written with Dr. Robert Carter Ph.D. Psychologist and Professor of Psychology and Education at Columbia University and in partnership with EMPOWHER NY and Ingrid Silva.

All characters were created and developed by black female illustrators, who shared their experiences and talent to bring the characters to life. Then each frame was made in watercolor, resulting in more than 1600 manual paintings. Thousands of newspaper articles about racial discrimination, from the 1920s to today, were the canvases for this animation. To further reinforce the “watery atmosphere” of the film, inspired by the tears of victims of race-based trauma, the filmmakers developed a new technique by capturing the reflection of each frame through the movement of the water in a small aquarium.

Even 100 years of news stories barely began to uncover the devastating consequences of racial hostility. This film was inspired by real events. Race-based traumatic stress is real. The injury is real.

"Maman Pleut Des Cordes" (Mum is pouring rain) animated TV special by Hugo de Faucompret (Laïdak Films)

15th Anniversary

Well, here it is - 15 years since I started the Flooby Nooby blog.

At first it was meant to be a daily "sketch blog", but that didn't last very long. Then it turned into a "here's some funny stuff I found on the internet" blog. But then it gradually evolved into this - a showcase of animated shorts; films, music videos, intros, demos, spots, commercials, and interstitials of all kinds.

As time went on, it came to a point where I didn't need to search for new animated content to display. For years now,  I've been inundated with dozens of shorts every month, generously sent to me by all of you - through email, skype, text message, facebook and twitter, and linkedin. I have all of you to thank for the endless amount of links to amazing content.

I've been touched by the hundreds of emails I've gotten over the years as well. My breakdown of The Cinematography of The Incredibles has surpassed 500,000 views, and I'm glad at how it seems to have helped educate many animation students and professional story artists.

Thank you all for the kind words and support.

Here's to another 15 years.

'New Year' by Diana Gradinaru & Rory WT

“Ravaged by millennia of climate breakdown, Britain is underwater. But Simon’s ramblings and football stickers inspire a faith where the heat of the earth is respected and 90s Man United midfielder Nicky Butt is worshiped as a God. The Year 2000 was simultaneously the beginning of the future, and the end of world.”
