Animator Nina Paley Releases Source Files for Sita Sings the Blues

Animator Nina Paley, who single-handedly made the feature film, Sita Sings the Blues, has released all of the Flash animation source files (.fla files) that make up the entire film.  She’s giving away the building-blocks of the entire film!  That’s like a traditional animator giving you all the drawings.  Paley has given the files a Creative Commons License which means animators can use her art and animation techniques in full or in pieces for their own projects as long as she is credited.

Sita Sings the Blues is a musical, animated personal interpretation of the Indian epic the Ramayana.

Animation: Sarumomo

Japanese artist Takumi K. made this animation that’s based on ideas from his daughter.  It’s a moving story that has been featured on YouTube.

I found this via Cold Hard Flash.

Manifestations: Gorgeous Student Animation

Wow!  Look at this.  Manifestations is a film by Giles Timms at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.  He made this with Flash, TVPaint, and After Effects.  The imagery is beautiful and layered.  I always like colorful fuzzy things with lots of darkness and transparency.  The film seems to be about a little non-human character who is in love with a human and goes across a world and through many battles both modern and ancient to find his love.
