“Women in Art” Huge YouTube Hit

Filed under: Animations,Experiments,In the News,Morphs — animaniac

Women in ArtThere’s a beautiful, in-depth and inspiring new video on YouTube called Women in Art that morphs between an inspiring series of portraits of women in western art from a Byzantine fresco through Impressionism and Picasso. This video has received over a million user views in about a month since its posting. While we’re not 100% sure it was created using Morpheus, it’s sure looks that way, and we believe it well worth pointing to as yet another excellent use of this technology. There’s a lot of passion, patience and art appreciation in this video, which can easily be said to be a work of art itself. Take a look here.

Portrait of a Lady

Filed under: Experiments,Morphs,Photography — animaniac

Here’s a lovely tribute to art imitating life, and then still more art giving the imitation still more life (but not more still life). Did you get that? Well, maybe you can ask your classmates for notes. Anyway, we choose the classic title of a classic novel for the title of this classic piece, but it is also known to the author andreysue2 as “Blue Sunday No Flash.”

the photo album of the future

Filed under: Animations,Experiments,Family,Morphs — animaniac

alyssaMorpheus user and YouTube member thomastittle sent us a nice note pointing to his brilliant, remarkable and – yes – enchanting animation of “Alyssa.” You can view the video here. Complete with soundtrack, this is a cinematic, compelling, cleverly-paced use of Morpheus to tell the story of a child’s growth. It exudes all the love of a caring parent, and practically creates a new medium – the photo album of the future. Thanks thomastittle!

Foxy Lady Cartoon Kiss

Filed under: Animations,Anime,Experiments,Morphs — animaniac

It’s nice when a short animation can portray a small action inside the morph, adding motion and narrative to the mix. This submission does that with style, going from the photographic to the cartoon world and sending the viewer a kiss in the process.

Psychedelic Star Child

Filed under: Animations,Experiments,Morphs,Strange — animaniac

Like a doll come to life in a Stephen King story, or an instantaneous snapshot across the room at the merry prankster’s midnight party, you see her eyes move toward you as she perceives your gaze and the color shift while all else remains the same. Killer concept and execution on this strobe effect morph. We like the butterflies and the sig too.

CherryTap Morphin’ Avatars

Filed under: Company,Experiments — animaniac

tn_1606638078.gifcherrytap is billed as the “Internet’s first online pub,” and they don’t mean publication. Seems like Morpheus has become a hit among a bunch of the early adoptors of cherrytap, for creating cutting-edge animated user images. cherrytap_logo.gifIt seems to help the community stay one step ahead of their obvious model, MySpace, as all things that come out of the Bay Area are slightly ahead of the curve in terms of style, innovation and sheer audacity. In any case, they’re open 24/7 (though still in stealth mode), and the party never stops. Morpheus at small size works well too – why have a static photo when you can self-display using a sophisticated animation created with Morpheus? We didn’t think of it, but we like it! Users always push the product to limits the developer-creators never dreamed of, and that’s a good thing. Tap into that!

I Must Have the Wrong Number

Filed under: Experiments,Morphs,Strange — animaniac

Odd how the geometry of a room can feel suddenly yanked out from under you, like a proverbial carpet or a tablecloth at a fine dinner. What is the relation of these two women? Guess what, we have no idea either. It’s like “You know, I was just minding my own business, waiting for Bela Lugosi to come by, when suddenly it all changed and I was blond and on the phone — plus the house had changed.” We think David Lynch might enjoy this one; unfortunately that might also mean that not everyone will. Well, we have morphs and animations for all tastes. Sorry for the hiatus, but we’re BAAAACCKKK!
