Most cases of premature ejaculation do not have a clear cause. With sexual experience and age, men often learn to delay orgasm. Premature ejaculation may occur with a new partner, only in certain sexual situations, or if it has been a long time since the last ejaculation. Psychological factors such as anxiety, guilt, or depression can cause premature ejaculation. In some cases, premature ejaculation may be related to a medical cause such as hormonal problems, injury, or a side effect of certain medicines.

Worrying that you won't be able to perform in bed can make it harder for you to do just that. Anxiety from other parts of your life can also spill over into the bedroom.

Thursday is Matthias Hoegg‘s graduation film from the Royal College of Art in London.

Suba – Sereia

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

Wonderful color! And the limited palette allows some really excellent cel-shading. Heavily comics-influenced — the humans have faces and Eisner poses; the sets are made of lots of flat landscape pieces and orthogonal pans past flat backgrounds; and the color, with broad swaths and subtle gradients, looks like Cam Kennedy‘s old Star Wars work.

It’s a bit long, and the voice work undercuts the already stiff acting and weakish plot, but the visuals carry the piece. The cel shading is used to make space for the stellar texture work, with fantastic layout and color design supporting the kind of balance of form and texture that you normally only see in expensive anime.

There’s also something interesting about the models — it appears that there’s a randomized jitter applied to all the vertices, which loosens up the silhouettes and contours, and makes it look even more like hand-painted work.

It’s all very well-considered and deliberate-feeling, and makes much of the rest of modern CG seem even more about spazzy reactionary trendiness. Fish barrel bang, I know, but there are waaaay too many fish in there, and they’re evil.

Après la Pluie

Thursday, January 1st, 2009

Goebelins encore, naturellement. Blending 2D and 3D, they’re getting better every year. So much has to do with restraint: which things you emphasize, and at which times. Matching 3D camera speed and pacing to the 2D character’s speed and pacing is a lot of it. The camera is a spoiler, and can hide a world of errors. Shading is only a tiny piece of the puzzle.

Gorgeous painting helps too. Very anime, especially in the wide shots, with the curving cirrus clouds. That fake wide-angle lens, though an anime cliche*, still works to stretch out the horizon and emphasize the timelessness of a moment.

Credits: Charles-André LEFEBVRE, Manuel TANON-TCHI, Louis TARDIVIER, Sébastien VOVAU, Emmanuelle WALKER. Apparently they are all from FRANCE.

Röyksopp – Remind Me

Thursday, April 17th, 2008

French studio H5 directed this infographics-style video in 2002 for “Remind Me,” from Norwegian wistful-disco electro-pop duo Röyksopp‘s first album.

Tsukino no Ban

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

“Tsukino no Ban” (“In the Evening of a Moonlit Night”) directed by Kazuyoshi Yaginuma, erstwhile animator for Studio 4°C on films including Akira. This short is part 4 of Studio 4°C’s 2001 OVA “Digital Juice.”

High quality at Stage 6.

It’s a curious artifact — the short is steeped in a typical anime combination of childlike innocence and an oddly naïve eroticism, complete with creepy Lolita angle.

The fact that it’s played so straight — with sensitive attention paid to movement and a nostalgic design worthy of Miyazaki — just makes it more unnerving, as it appears that we’re intended to take it all at face value. Far be it from me to moralize, but I get nervous around depictions of the fetishisation of the disenfranchised.

There’s some subtle 3D in there too, which probably explains this short’s inclusion in a collection called “Digital Juice.”

The music is the Velvet Underground’s “Sunday Morning.”

Potapych

Monday, February 11th, 2008

“Potapych, the Bear who Loved Vodka,” by Darren Price. Such lovely design. And a true story!

The official site has Hi-res Quicktimes.

From the AnimWatch mini-interview with Price:

Putting cel shading together with hand painted backgrounds was the general idea. Each frame had to look like an illustration.

Great success! The look of gouache on rough paper works like it worked for studios in the 50′s: it’s economical and evocative without being distracting, an excellent foil for the simple, cel-shaded characters. However, unlike many of those studios (I’m looking at you, Hanna-Barbera), rather than throwing backdrops up slapdash, Price uses the simplicity and versatility of the style to take the design further: he can afford to give nearly every shot in “Potapych” its own background, with colors and design carefully tuned to match the mood of the story at that moment.

The hereby-mononymous Amid elaborated on the vicissitudes of this style in one of his notorious cage-fight death-match posts on Cartoon Modern: “Hanna Barbera vs. Walt Peregoy/Eyvind Earle.”

Go bears!

Gnap Gnap

Friday, January 25th, 2008

One more from Gobelins for Annecy 2005, with “Gnap Gnap,” featuring classic Mobius stylee, excellent sound design, and decent 2D+3D, which should be called 5D.

And here’s Quicktime with stereo.

The song on the record is the song sung by the man in the shower in “Le Building,” thanks no doubt to the sound designer for both pieces, Olivier Crouet.

I believe “Gnap Gnap” translates roughly to “Nom Nom Nom.”

Le Building

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

Today on Gobelins Appreciation Week: “Le Building” for Annecy 2005.

“Le Building” in high-res on Stage6.

Excellent in every respect. They pulled off an extra-nifty trick here you don’t see done well very often.

Musicotherapie

Tuesday, August 28th, 2007

Brilliant — fantastic style, cleverly done, and the best use of cel shading I’ve ever seen.

“Musicotherapie,” by Supinfocom students Amaël Isnard, Manuel Javelle, and Clément Picon, with music by Nicolas Baloche and Benjamin Fournier as Tambour Battant (“Rumbling Drum”, also the name of a French wartime broadcast).

A cleaner Quicktime version and info in French are available at http://musicotherapie-lefilm.com.

Theory follows.
