This video had me smiling all the way through. From its funny character designs by directors/animators Ivan Dixon and Greg Sharp – with Marlo Meekins – to its subtle subversive images done with a wink (literally). The music is cool, too.

Produced out of Australia’s Rubber House, with additional animation by Neil Sanders, Gavin Mouldey, Alex Grigg, Peter Lowey and Jérémy Pires, here’s Wouter De Backer’s (aka Goyte) Seven Hours With A Backseat Driver:

This weekend, the first part of the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival took place in Indio, California. More than 225,000 people gathered to hear performances by more than 140 artists including Radiohead, Bon Iver, Gotye, The Hives, and Florence and the Machine. A lifelike projection of the late rapper Tupac Shakur even took the stage last night during the closing act with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. The festival wraps up next weekend, April 20 through 22.

Easy Way Out by Gotye

Director Darcy Prendergast of Melbourne, Australia-based Oh Yeah Wow had one golden rule for this music video: “Nothing should be created in a computer. All of the elements were created in camera, then masterfully assembled by visual effects wizard Andrew Goldsmith. We animated the plasticine blood, the cat, the flames, the smoke—all in stop motion with a motion control set up. Andrew then composited all these elements together.”

Rock It For Me by Caravan Palace

French artist Ugo Gattoni came up with the concept for this boldly art directed video that was directed by Gattoni, Guillaume Cassuto, and Jeremy Pires.

Love Is Making Its Way Back Home by Josh Ritter

This stop-mo video was created with over 12,000 pieces of construction paper, shown as it was shot, with no effects added in post. A collaboration between director Erez Horovitz and animator Sam Cohen.

Romantic Crap by Some Toir

The animation for the Russian video blends pixel, stop motion, and live action. The director is Yegor Lymarev, and the animation is by Alexei Medvedev.

New Sum (Nous Sommes) by Hey Rosetta!

Using a roto-scoping technique similar to Waking Life or Scanner Darkly, Jesse Davidge directed this video at Blatant Studios, in Vancouver, BC.
