Monday motion goodness: Waves in HD, bearded hippies, and more

  • Lucinda Schreiber and Yanni Kronenberg used chalkboard drawings to produce the Autumn Story music video for Firekites. [Via]
  • Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational early-70’s Scanimate demo. Some part of me kind of wishes that Adobe tools involved more retro levers, switches, cable splicing, etc.–and of course that their use was accompanied by funky 70’s horn sections.
  • Infographics:
    • Melih Bilgil’s The History of the Internet tells, well, you know, using minimal lines but loads of attention to detail. (The fly-over of Cuba is terrific.) Adobe designer Ethan Eismann writes, “My new personal mission in life is to bring this level or higher of engaging instruction to an Adobe welcome screen near you.”
    • Slagsmålsklubben would be cool just for its name.

    LOL! It seems your fetish for letters with hats is still raging, John! “Slagsmålsklubben” is Scandinavian for “fight club.”
    [Ah, but how do I know you’re not pulling my leg (as my German grandfather did, making up bizarre words during my childhood)? Wikipedia backs up your story, but perhaps you’ve been in there, editing the pages. ;-) –J.]

    At SIGGRAPH several years ago they hauled a surviving Scanimate system to the show floor for everybody to marvel at. The exhibitor said the huge number of patch wires, levers, knobs and switches was the system’s eventual downfall. It was almost impossible to reset everything to produce the same effect more than once.
