I can’t believe that I only just found this today.  From Jamie Caliri’s website:

This piece was made as part of the development process for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.

They asked me to explore animation concepts. I thought it would be much more fun to actually shoot a section of the script to intertwine live action and animation. It was a fun surprise for the producers.

We shot in downtown LA.

Directed by Jamie Caliri.

Making of United States of Tara title sequence

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events may not have captured the essence of the books, but that INSANELY gorgeous production design and these stunning end credits consistently make me want to go to there.

I would love for them to remake the original (and continue the series) but as stop motion movies. Take a look at some behind-the-scenes shots of the sets, all of which were built on soundstages. Every. Single. One. Including the Lachrymose Lake scenes. Yeah. PD Porn.

Great Interview with Jamie Caliri about title sequences and animation.

Paper stop-motion animation. Stunning.

One of my favorite animators is Jamie Caliri. He’s done the title sequence to United States of Tara, Lemony Snickets, and has done some really great commercials. This video kind of shows his method. His work is truly wonderful. I hope someday I become just as good as Jamie.

Bien que ce n'était pas une bande dessinée, le roman The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay de Michael Chabon a pris le monde du comics - et la liste des bestsellers du New York Times - par suprise lors de sa sortie. Le roman fit de Chabon une sommité non reconnue dans les milieux officieux du comics, et même la promotion d'un spin-off quelques années plus tard sous la forme d'une série de comics chez Dark Horse. Il y eu de nombreux échos d'une possible adaptation cinématographique, où des noms tels que Tobey Maguire et Natalie Portman furent attachés par moment au projet, mais jusqu'ici rien n'a jamais dépassé le stade du projet.

 Alors que nous attendons toujours de voir naitre ce film, l'artiste Jamie Caliri a récemment mis en ligne une séquence live / animée que le producteur Scott Rudin (No Country For Old Men, True Grit) a commandée afin de remporter le financement du long métrage. En vain …. Toutefois ce film nous donne un avant goût de ce qui aurait pu être.

NB: Une version française du roman de Michael Chambon The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay est disponible aux éditions 10/18.. LISEZ LE !!

Director Jamie Caliri was given free reign to make the video for The Shins, “The Rifle’s Spiral” as awesome as can be. The result is an odd stop motion short narrative, that plays off like a dark Tim Burton creation. If anyone has Nintendo 3DS, you can check out an alternate 3D version of the video.

Port of Morrow is everywhere now.

The Shins - “The Rifle’s Spiral”

youtube

Az Early To Bed klipje a Morphinetól, amely az egyik leggyilkosabb atmoszférájú popzenekar, ami valaha létezett - de a hasonlókra szívesen várom a tippeket. Ha nem is ez a legjobb számuk (eleve elég egyenletes színvonalúak a lemezeik szerencsére), de biztosan a kedvenc lemezem tőlük a Like Swimming, amit ez a szám promotált és ez a videóklip tökéletesen illusztrálja a Morphine beteg, morbid univerzumát. Jamie Caliri rendezhetett volna még egy pár klipet - a Marcy Playground slágerének is ő csinálta a videóját és ezek alapján eléggé értette ezeket a bandákat. Rászabadítottam volna még néhány másikra.

Last week, I finally got around to checking out “Port of Morrow,” The Shins’s March release and first album since 2007’s “Wincing The Night Away.” I haven’t fully absorbed all 10 songs yet, but I really like what I’ve heard thus far, especially opening track “Rifle’s Spiral.” And lo and behold, what did I see on mtvU this morning? Why, the Jamie Caliri-helmed video for that same tune, of course. A very unique clip - cryptic yet enchanting, in typical Shins fashion. Plus, I’m a pushover for any kind of stop-motion animation, and the Tim Burton-esque motif is just plain cool.
