Meat Love

Meat Love

It’s always good when people respond to the blogs we write. The one I wrote last week about the MTV advert animation got a great response when we tweeted the link, with @anthonygelatka pointing me in the direction of another great piece of animation.

It’s called Meat Love, and it’s a stop motion animation by a Czech surrealist film maker called Jan Svankmajer. As you’ll see, it certainly is a bit surreal, but the ending made me laugh.

I’ve got to admit I hadn’t heard of Svankmajer before, but he’s done some other work which is on YouTube, including this, so I’ll definitely be checking him out in the near future.

If you’ve got any great animators or animations done differently, it’d be great to hear about them. What do you think of Svankmajer’s work? Surreal, or just plain bizarre?

    I love the work of Jan Svankmajer

    I would recommend -

    The Death of Stalinism in Bohemia (Konec stalinismu v Čechách)
    Dimensions of Dialogue (Tma, světlo, tma)
    The Flat (Byt)
    Darkness, Lightness, Darkness

    Alice (Něco z Alenky)
    Little Otik (Otesánek)
    Conspirators of Pleasure (Spiklenci slasti)
    Lunacy (Šílení)

    most of which have clips on youtube

    Another Czech stopframe/puppet animator to check out is Jiri Trnka, watch 'The Hand' or the documentary
