Follow us on a psychedelic journey through the character populated worlds of over 50 forward-looking, stylistically outstanding studios, animators and designers… The successful series is back, exploring freshly hatched characters that live in our brave new mixed-up post digital world. Instead of focusing on narrative and technique, the character is what is studied and showcased. “Characters in Motion – Volume 3” is jam-packed with over 3 hours of character-centric animations, music visuals, motion graphics and experimental short films.
“Candy! Pure candy! What could be more joyful? In piece after piece you don’t know whether to drool over the design or the technique or both. Just magical little wonderful short piece after short piece, a treat!”
Animation World Network
“Characters in Motion shows clearly: dramatic performances are not restricted to living humans. At two o’clock in the morning, nothing is more bewildering and mysterious – we’ve tried it out. And we’re thankful.”
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
“A trip to another world: this DVD with book leads us through computer generated universes, populated by inhabitants both cute and cruel. Small animations without need for an elongated narration, but overwhelming with their wild and exuberant visual fantasy.”
