Blossom Films

Posted by Dash Shaw on December 1

I directed the 10-second animated logo for Blossom Films, Nicole Kidman’s production company. It plays before Rabbit Hole. I did it with the same team as Unclothed Man: Jane and James on sound. It’s a painted watercolor animation that’s inverted on the computer.

Here are some images from working on it: the storyboards, figuring out the timing, and a few test images from trying to get it right.

    Hey Dash,
    This looks really cool, can’t wait to see the movie. Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your comics comics post about Tezuka, I recently watched the documentary that came with the book and it was fascinating. Turns out Scott McCloud liked your post as well-
    (I’m wondering if handstands increase blood flow to the brain?)

    Thanks, Brett.

    Hey Dash!

    Love the animated logo!
    I didn’t see an email anywhere on the blog, so going to ask here…..
    I was wondering if you have a contact @ Blossom. I have a project they may be interested in.

    Really appreciate any help :)

    Sorry, Anastasia. Maybe they’ll have an open website or something soon.

    Just wanted to say I really loved your logo! I’m going to show it in my Motion Graphics class as an example of something I’d love to learn how to do.
