BLOG: Director Brad Mossman‘s character Roz is painfully familiar to many of us – and a delight to watch. Somehow, the fact that the Mossman’s visualization of this character looks more like a shifty-eyed space-raindrop with ears than the doting and overbearing auntie she sounds like only makes this little ‘toon all the more charming. Enjoy.
BLOG: Geraldine, by French animator Arthur de Pins, is the story of a young woman going through changes.
BLOG: New York designer Peter Stults‘ wide array of fake movie posters are some of the best we’ve seen. The titles are familiar but the posters are from another time with the appropriate actors. He got the feel of each era down to a T. Check out more of his fantastical film posters at behance.net/PeterStults.
BLOG: Some call it Women’s History Month, some call it National Frozen Foods Month, some just call it the Month of Getting Drunk And Wearing More Green Than Is Ever Appropriate. But our friends at LoopdeLoop like to refer to March as LIQUID Month – and we couldn’t agree more! All month we’ve been highlighting some of our favorite looping animations, submitted to LoopdeLoop by indie animators from around the globe, but this Sunday the contest closes. So whether you simply want to vote or if you’ve been sitting on something completely inappropriate like Nathanael Scott, Felix Colgrave, Ivan Dixon (above), or something a little simpler like Amy Alexander, Neil Sanders, or Ana Maria Mendez Salgado (below) – there’s no time like the present! Head over to loopdeloop.org before Sunday night (which is more like Sunday at dawn in the USA). After all, Liquid is the reason for the season.
BLOG: New Zealand illustrator Joseph Senior started making Hello Kitty spinoffs as a tribute to George Lucas and Star Wars – his Flickr handle is Yodaflicker. But the project has since turned into something much more, as he takes requests from friends and strangers on new Kitty models. From Wonder Woman to Optimus Prime to Daft Punk, Senior is on a mission to leave no possible Hello Kitty version untouched.

BLOG: Not to be confused with Phillippe Gamer‘s Chase, Tomas Vergara‘s The Chase is its own take on the 3D animated action adventure format. A triangle of violence between a kid, an unlikely pair, and a Mr. Big type unfolds around a mysterious locked briefcase – and only one can reap the spoils. We rarely show animations that run this long, but at just over 13 minutes, this is one short we wished would go on much longer. Good thing The Chase is in the works to become a feature length! Stay posted to Liquid TV and thechaseshortfilm.com for updates.
