Our favourite web video of the week is Cinematics, a quirky animated timeline of classic films and characters by Pier Paolo (a very creative and talented designer and animator from Brazil). Created in his spare time as a fun side project, the animation pays homage to some of his favourite films. The lettering of the title was also created from scratch by Pier and he is working on developing a whole font of it.
The video features awesome illustrated depictions of well-known pop culture characters, from Charlie Chaplin to characters from movies like Indiana Jones, The Godfather and Star Wars. We love how simple the designs are whilst perfectly capturing the essence of each character. We particularly like the music (created by Marcelo Baldin), which pays homage to the soundtracks of each film by subtly weaving their overtures into the main score. What a brilliant little animation!
