Check out this terrific little animated video by artist Gabe Askew which has become an instant hit on the net. Askew created a fan video of the band Grizzly Bear's song, "Two Weeks." It's a really astonishing work of animation -- the images are gorgeous (and funny, such as the coffee drinking rabbits) and the whole piece flows effortlessly in concert with the song. You can read a fascinating interview on CGDigg with Askew where he discusses the elaborate process of producing the film -- including the task of creating all the images and the textures first by hand. All I can say is I hope to see more from Gabe in the future -- a feeling echoed in the many, many adulatory responses to the video. (And do let the video load first -- it's worth the wait!)
