This is beautiful….
Time To Be Clear is from Bonnie “Prince” Billy’s latest album Wolfroy Goes to Town and is out now as a digital single.
Lovers of all things Mighty Boosh (and fans of the peculiar 2009 film Bunny & The Bull) will be pleased (and mildly suprised) to hear that director Paul King‘s next film will be an adaptation of beloved children’s TV show, Paddington.
King has assured fans of Michael Bond‘s books and the original TV series’ that Paddington will stay true to the bear’s original design and feel, telling Empire magazine recently that, “he will be dressed correctly in a Peruvian bush hat and blue duffle coat.”
Paddington is currently in pre-production and will be released some time in 2014.
Does exactly what it says on the tin…
Here’s a brilliant animated short called Chris Jumped Out Of A Plane:
The short was written and performed by Tim Key and directed and animated by Fraser Davidson. The ‘poem’ is taken from Tim Key With A String Quartet On A Boat album.
You can buy the album here.
Here’s a new video from Belle & Sebastian‘s Late Night Tales Vol. 2 compilation. It’s a lovely little animation that sees the band rendered as cartoon characters as they cover The Primitives 1988 hit single, Crash:
Belle & Sebastian‘s Late Night Tales Vol. 2 compilation album featuring tunes by, amongst others, Broadcast, Gold Panda, The Pop Group, The Lovin’ Spoonful and Yoro Y Moi – and you can buy it here.
Here’s a new short from Cyriak Harris, a freelance animator based near Brighton.
It’s called Cobwebs and it’s like some kind of apocalyptic-cyber-punk-MC-Escher type affair – enjoy:
Here’s the new Pete Fowler directed video for The Horrors - Changing The Rain - check it out below:
Here’s a short animation by David Shrigley, publicising his excellent, What The Hell Are You Doing? collection, published in September 2010 - it’s not new but it is funny:
Just yesterday though, Ben Stiller tweeted that an animated web series was being now considered – along with link to a cartoon still (left).
Whether this means it’s only going to be released online is seemingly unknown at the moment – although one hopes that’ll change, once Stiller lets a bit more info slip.
As for a sequel to the succesful and chucklesome Zoolander film, Stiller confirmed way back in Spring 2010 that his production company were, “…in the process of getting a script written. It’s in the early stages, but it’s gonna happen. We’ve been trying for years to… figure it out. It’ll have input from all the… ‘Zoolander’ people. It’s just… taken awhile.”
So is 2012 the year the sequel finally drops? Who knows, but as a shooting schedule isn’t in place it looks unlikely. The good news however, is that a script has now been completed with Stiller’s Tropic Thunder co-writer Justin Theroux, and Stiller is clearly still intent on reviving the character.
Here’s hoping we all hear something more concrete in 2012.
