G’day folks, today’s letter is brought to you by the letters “THIS IS IT”; I mean word, werd.
THIS IS IT, is collective which is based in London, comprising of illustrators, animators, artists and designers. These radical chaps and gals created a very humorous video sing-a-long … well not really a sing-a-long but its very catchy, and its pretty much about a notepad that comes to life and tells these three characters how to think creatively; by song; which is the best kind of way; as long as it’s not in a school.
It’s all made out of puppetry and a dash of CGI/ motion graphics; so the aesthetic is very alluring to the inner child; pretty much how Sesame street does it, but awesome funny; Sesame street was never funny… and Kermit the frog was a total sell-out; (Muppet fan as a kid).
For the folks that haven’t seen this, please sit tight and watch it all; it gets pretty funny, well it did for me anyway, after the 1 minute mark, since the notepad doesn’t seem to like the guy with the blue hair very much… and also it has a rad twist, leading up towards the end.
Anyway, you know the drill; here’s some screenshots, links at the bottom for the source and the video. POW!, HAHA.
