Best Animate shows for Adults

Alright I tend to avoid list, so please note that these are not in any sort of order! Basically the only reason I am doing this is cause unlike most fools I do have a grand love for all things animated(from anime, to kids shows), and I don’t feel like enough people understand that it’s not just for kids. As well as that I am trying to find a new show similar to these and all that ever comes up is family guy or the Simpsons! So if you know of any feel free to let us know.

Archer

ARCHER:

Alright I know it’s an obvious one but bear with me, not nearly enough people I know have watched it. Basically it’s a show about what not to do if you’re a spy, you know simple things like don’t date co-worker, don’t come into work drunk and don’t piss of a cyborg… you know the basics!

All of the Avatar Series

legend-of-korra2

So this is a kids show but like everything I am mentioning it does not deserved to be overlooked. Both shows follow the journey of the Avatar, a person who in each generation has the power to control all four of the elements. Honestly despite the fact that it is indeed a kids show  I would have to say that this show deals with more emotional growth and doubt (such as Zukos Journey) than any of the best dramas on tv. seriously if your kids can tell this you should be old enough to cope on to it as well.

Rick and Morty

rick-and-morty

So moving away from kids shows Rick and Morty is exactly what it says on the tin, its a show about a mastermind-scientist-alcholic-grandad and a not-so-bright Morty. Honestly it just about adventure’s they go on, which isn’t as lame as I am making it out to sound, it honestly pretty decent.

Fairy Tail

I don’t care how old you are this show is ridiculously good. It takes place in a land with magic where a troublesome and excentric guild exist by the name of fairy tail. Its one of the funniest shows I have ever seen, with characters that I wont even try to explain with words… seriously just watch it

FullMetal Alchemist

banner_528This show it not for the faint of heart, within the first few episode you watch as two young boys attempt to defy the laws of alchemy to bring back their mother from the dead, one losing an arm and the other his body. And I promise you it doesn’t get much happier after that. Its set in a world where the laws of alchemy exist, as you balance out what you take by giving an equal portion back to the world. It filled with “major” and more often than not, tragic plot twist as the two boys attempt to return to their original bodies, while getting caught in the middle of an all out civil war.

Daria

All I can say is that if you have a dry, and I mean like Sahara dessert dry sense of humour, this is the show for you

Death Note

death-note-death-note-666036_576_460Another dark anime here about your normal honour student who happened to get his hands on a Death note, allowing him the power to kill at will, a power he embraces. All he needs is a name and a face and you can be dead as he see’s fit. Corrupted by this power he attempts to cleanse the world by killing all villains and thugs, while a mysterious man who goes under the alias “L” follows in hot pursuit. Out of everything I ever watched I have to say the ending for the first season of this was one of the most well written that I have come across, although I am not gonna lie its best to stop their, the only good thing about season two is the weird opening credits.

Ugly Americans

5147071719_3272626a40I know I said that I wasnt doing a list but I did save the best for last. Ugly Americans takes place in New York, in the department of integration, where zombies, demons and vampires go to get citizenship. Its full of reference that I can promise you’re not to old or young to not get and it just brilliant from the concept to the zombie roommate to the demon boss. Their only 20 minutes long and only two season, I promise it wont take up that much of your like!

The Stop Motion Jazz

Right so I mentioned my project last time for my stop motion piece ‘The Everyday Situationist’ and I taught that I would show you a simple way for making your own stop motion. Keep in mind this was just a prototype and will be easy to replicate if you wanna try it.

Basically it involves a camera and slowly moving a piece in front of a camera .And its in these pictures that make a frame, which when placed together can make a short video piece. Depending on how realistic you want the video to be you can add more frames a second, which takes more time and will power to only change the object in the frame as slightly as possible between frames. For how I made my actual video you need a live feed from a DLSR camera and a program for stop motion (if you use dragon frame theirs a months free trial and it’s pretty decent) and from then on it pretty simple, until you get to the joys of editing the video piece together (with movie maker, or premiere)

The Everyday Situationist set

So the Situationist art movement was a movement unlike any other, and the movement that I got placed with for my final assessment for college. Basically what they wished to do was create a new everyday, where people wouldn’t be burdened with the mundanely of the nine to five. One of my favorite artist of this Constant Nuremberg ,who took this philosophy and created what he referred to as a New Babylon.

So it’s with this movement and man, that I pieced together my own reality in a short video titled “The everyday Situationist” which I will upload shortly. Underneath is the set that I made for the production, fell free to let me know what you think;

My First Set

So long time no post, but I have a pretty decent excuse, I have spent a long time getting into college. Actually I have just finished my first assessment, where me, along with four others in my group, had to write/design and perform a play for the local primary school.

Naturally I got put in charge of set and this is the end result. Hope you enjoy, I will be trying to get my portfolio that I used to get into college up here at some point soon (just in case theirs anyone out their stressing as much about a portfolio as I have) Enjoy!

Shinichi Maruyama, Matrix Style Photography

One of the biggest trends in photography recently is slow motion photography, where photographer like Shinichi Maruyama would take a picture of a certain type of action or movement, as its occurring, like a bullet barreling through a piece of fruit or in Shinichi Maruyama case, water, and the movements it momentum makes as it swirls above him

Marbling

Alright so last week I tried my hand at marbling and I have to say that its pretty cool, basically what it is, is two different coloured inks, left to mix and collide into each other in a bath of water, and then place a sheet of paper on top of it to imprint the random design onto your page. So it a good way of creating a background, and the likes but is very hard to control, which is really just another thing that is appealing about it in my eyes.

So I mixed the colours orange and yellow to create a relaxed and warm background, and painted in a silhouettes of tree,s and animals in the background, but something was missing, the picture had no real main focus to tie it all together, and seems as the Lion King is coming out in 3D I decided to place Scar in their.

So hope you like the picture, and Keep Posted…
