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.

(Thanks for the tip, Scott!)

Piotr Kamler – Une Mission Ephémère (1993)

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

An explicit examination of interaction, from Polish animator Piotr Kamler — this is a reprise of many of the themes of his earlier work since the 1970s, going so far as to reuse models from his 1982 opus Chronopolis.

It certainly recalls very accurately the sense of whimsical vertigo seen in late 70s and early 80s illustration, as particularly exemplified by Moebius, La Planète Sauvage, and their ilk — the horror of interface design. Charming-looking mechanisms with coy personalities are always in danger of reacting poorly to manipulation, rising up in Lovecraftian ways and overwhelming the user. I suppose it all boils down to drugs and the Other eventually.

The Eagleman Stag trailer

Friday, August 27th, 2010

Gorgeous trailer for The Eagleman Stag, an as-yet-publicly-unavailable short from animator Michael Please of London. The subsurface scattering and global illumination is amazing. Also, that’s a deceptively simple build — it takes a lot of polygons to make a model look that clean.

What? Stop-motion? Oh.

Well, that explains how he’s getting such smooth samples in his AO pass.

In a stunningly brave knight’s move, So-Cal native Allison Schulnik has delivered unto us one of the more transparent depictions of the modern hipster artist id.

Das Rad

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

“Das Rad” (“The Wheel”), English title “Rocks”, made in 2001 by Chris Stenner, Arvid Uibel, and Heidi Wittlinger at
Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. It was a 2003 Academy Award nominee for best animated short film.

The characters and foreground sets were stop motion, and the backgrounds were made in Maya. Fancy foreground lighting effects, including fast-moving cloud shadows, were accomplished by lighting a white low-poly 3D replica set and comping it over the physical set. Making-of shots can be seen at the short’s website, dasrad.com.

Chris Stenner went on to animate at Trixter, Heidi Wittlinger is freelancing in Berlin, and Arvid Uibel died in 2000, possibly during production… the film is dedicated to him.

Michael Langan – Doxology

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

A whole lot of awesome human stop-motion in here (otherwise known as pixilation) — looks like mad skillz may finally be coming back into fashion.

An outstanding first volley from BrewTV.

One Day a Man Bought a House

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008

By Norwegian Piotr Sapegin, 1998.

A simple formula, but the ingredients are difficult. Wit is the key. Timing and understatement are the keys to wit. Add some beauty and the result is sublime.

Stop-Motion Tron

Thursday, March 27th, 2008

Awesome stop-motion/live-action remake of the best scene in the best movie ever. The sound alone still gets my blood up, on par with the TIE fighter noise.

Le Génie de la Boîte de Raviolis

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

This is about the cutest darn thing I’ve ever seen.

Directed by Schweitzer Claude Barras.

More details in French and a brief making-of at the poorly-coded official Flash site.

The genie’s song:

Armand, mon bienheureux
(Armand, my lucky friend)
Armand, dés aujourd’hui
(Armand, from today)
Tout semblera plus beau, plus grand
(Everything will seem bigger and better)
Car voilà devant toi
(Because in front of you is)
Le merveilleux, le superbe génie
(The marvellous, the superb genie)
De la boîte de raviolis
(of the can of ravioli)

Final song:

On est si bien les pieds dans l’eau.
(We are so comfy our feet in the water.)
L’un contre l’autre, au bord d’un ruisseau.
(One leaning on the other, on the banks of a stream.)
Il y a rien à faire à part chanter.
(There’s nothing to do except to sing.)
On laisse s’entremper nos doigts de pied.
(We let our toes get wet.)

If I have time I may go through and do a translation, but for now the songs alone will sustain us.

Rabbit vs. Football

Friday, February 1st, 2008

Holy crap! Amazing bloopy 3D! I didn’t believe it until I saw the wireframe at the end.

“Rabbit vs. Football” in high-res at Stage6.

From Swedish studio Meindbender. Before I saw this CGTalk thread I wrote to ask them how they did it; Olov Burman, director and animator, attributes the clay look to rigging by Tony Österlund and shading by Michael Bengtsson.

…there are no big secrets to it really. Blendshapes for the extreme poses and squash and stretch functions for arms legs and body. Before we started rigging we knew exactly what the rabbit would do in the clip.

That’s the key right there — it looks like stop motion because, essentially, that’s what it is. You can’t fake a good plan.

The CGTalk thread contains links to screenshots of the blend shapes, very cool.

Breakdown!
