The Art of Animation and Some Ghosties

I think my focus for this blog post will be animation. Animated shorts, animated videos, animated films, just… that’s just a topic I’m really passionate about. It’s just something I enjoy doing and enjoy talking about, like all the hard work and creativity that goes into every piece… It’s just plain insane how you can make an entire video, even entire movies just by drawing each picture out, I mean… think about it. You need about 12 frames for one second of animation, and that’s pretty low quality too. Most professionals and even amateurs who want to be respected in their field want to go for at least 24 for frames per second or even 30. So you’re making about 24 drawings for only a second of animation, and a movie is what… about an hour and a half long? That’s like… a lot of seconds.

So much time and work goes into making animated works and I just admire that so much. The animation industry is so huge, so many people put so much time and work into making it happen.

What I actually want to shift my focus to is this animated music video right here. The song is called Ghosts by Mystery Skulls, and their music is pretty rad too, I definitely recommend to check them out. This music video, if you haven’t seen it yet, has sort of been booming on social media, well at least the social media I hang around. It’s been out for… what… 3 days about? And there’s already all this really cool fanart and theories, man I just think that’s so cool.

And the video itself is just gorgeously done, the animation’s lovely and has many references to Scooby Doo (which was a very tasteful touch in my opinion), the story was well thought out and presented nicely. The style is adorable and absolutely lovely. It’s use of the heart theme to fit along with the bass throughout the short was a nice touch as well. Honestly, it was just really rad and I love it.

I mean that’s not the only really awesome short out there, gosh my list of shorts is just about endless, I spend so much time watching them because they’re so dang great! Sadly, Ghosts is the only one I think I’m going to gush about today, but I think a few more worth mentioning are:

Just a few cute animated videos and shorts I enjoy watching. Will probably talk more about in the future, but for now I’d have to call it a night.
