Some playful, characterful cutout animation from Blink my Brain.
In conjunction with Adult Swim, Run The Jewels released a mind-altering video by esteemed cult video artist Cyriak for the albums lead track Meowpurrdy, a remix by El-P that deposits his and Killer Mikes vocal performances in the midst of a rhythmic vapor of meows, purrs, and hisses. Cyriaks visual treatment is an LSD-nightmare miasma of cat limbs and teeth fractalizing into feline Cthulu-esque monstrosities.
The music video for Bonobo’s song, “Cirrus,” is a beautifully surreal video collage created by British animator Cyriak.

BBC Education has got a beautiful promo for 2017. It mixes live action with 3d, animation… all around the periodic element table. Directed by weareflink.
This Buck video should come with a saccharine warning, as the music and small american kids talking about puppies does verge on the nauseating, but it’s a nice animation which manages to slickly combine multiple animation looks and live action in the blink of an eye.
Dress Code create this montage video for Syracuse university, using cut up photos and video in a collage look. The recruitment video goes past the general sunny campus video and montages voice and archive stills to create a unique video.
Clim from Sebas & Clim fame has now gone solo and produced this nice infographic for Facebook. It’s wonderfully designed as ever but it’s the seamless integration with CGI and shot photography which sets this infographic away from the others.
A great montage juxapositioning unusual images using a lot of old archive footage. Directed by: Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia

Director – SEGA

An interesting mix of styles combining the foundations of a studio shoot with lots of overlaid graphics informing the viewer about the collections and work of this Dutch centre for biodiversity studies. Agency – PlusOne

A short history of this artist told by Tom Waits in a quite comical montaged manner
Nice use of text within video clips.
A montage here of lots of clips, useful for a bit of inspiration. Starting with adapting photos and moving in to all sorts of idents and motion graphics. Useful credit list of all the featured films at the end too.

This is just a great, heart warming advert combining kids drawings by means of camera tracking and clever compositing.
