taking back the joy of coloring

Eye Candy 4

Cartoon time!

This video uses simple forms and a beautifully developed color palette to tell a compelling story.

Little Boat from nelson boles on Vimeo.

I thought this moving video was appropriate, given that it’s Memorial Day weekend and all. You can find more of Nelson’s work on google+ at plus.google.com/110904034384447866986 and on Vimeo.

The static, centered framing of the main character goes against the established rules for composition that we all learned in art class. How do you think Nelson’s use of static composition affects the film?
