Ryan Larkin

Street Musique, Syrinx and Walking: three works by the incredible Canadian animator Ryan Larkin. I think this is what you’d get if you mashed up Fantasia, The Science of Sleep, The Earthly Paradise, a Bill Plympton cartoon, and some pot brownies.

Then there’s the also-amazing short 3D documentary about Larkin’s life, Ryan (part 1 | part 2). (MetaFilterrific.)


Amazing! There should almost be a different word for this kind of thing, to distinguish it from cel-based animation, which is obviously great in its own way, but just so sterile by contrast.

Okay, now I just watched the 3D documentary, too. And that deserves a word of its own as well. Unbelievable. Collectively this is one of the coolest bundles of media I have seen in a long time.
