Check Out This Animated Short: “Brazey”


Sometimes the simplest approach is the best. Take for example “Brazey,” a new animated short from animator Jared D. Weiss.

To make this short, Weiss first improvised some music on the fly. Then, keeping the track as-is including the mistakes, he animated a little blobby guy in sync with the beats. There was no script, no storyboards and definitely no polishing of any kind. This is what raw thought looks like…

More of Weiss’s shorts and art can be found on his Vimeo channel. If you liked this, you should love another of Weiss’s shorts that has a bit more meat to it, the five-minute-long “Transmission.” It got the attention of Vimeo themselves (note the “Staff Pick”), has played in over a dozen animation festivals around the world, and has won several awards.
