I’m waiting to hear back from the man himself on credits for this video - year, composer/song title, what this project was for, etc. Until then, I’m assuming the brilliant Eric Nordhauser is entirely responsible for this, music courtesy of his musical project savage planet. As the title of this video is Eric Nordhauser’s AE Reel, it isn’t a stretch to say this might be a sampler of his AfterEffects work, but obviously it stands alone as a sweet animation with a real catchy soundtrack.

For those of you who are not familiar with Nordhauser, he has been an animator, a VFX artist, a musician, a director, and is currently the owner and co-curator of SHOW CAVE in Los Angeles. You might know of SHOW CAVE if you listen to bands like //TENSE//, billie ray martin and WARSAW, or live in LA (or follow them on tumblr).

Also, he pretty much invented ~*~*\/\/y†chH▲v$*~*~, maybe.

UPDATE: In doin’ a little digging around, I’ve found that part of this reel is from the music video he directed for I Am Spoonbender’s “Replaced By Toys”. I hope he doesn’t think I’m a dumdum in the message I sent him asking wat diz vidjo waz ferr.

UPDATE 2: I’m gonna interview him.

So excited to have found this!!

Satyajit Ray’s Apu Trilogy is a masterpiece of Indian cinema, and stands as testament to what a tiny budget can do; it’s one of my favorite trilogies of all time by one of my favorite Indian directors. So beautiful, and this film, the first of the series, is online in its entirety! I’m definitely going to have to write about it soon.
